Yesterday was a magical day for Kinston native Jamar Darboe. While visiting ECU's campus with his grandmother, Darboe received the news that ECU had officially given him an offer.
"I received my offer yesterday when my grandma and I took a visit to ECU," said Darboe. "We toured the campus and met with Coach Anderson and a couple other coaches. We also got the chance to have a nice long talk with coach Montgomery."
The two exchanged information about their backgrounds and Montgomery stressed to Darboe that he is trying to grow the program.
While on his visit, Darboe was impressed with the facilities and the demeanor of the coaching staff.
"The facilities are amazing,' said Darboe. "The coaches were being upfront about everything, and they kept it real the whole time. The biggest thing was how homey it felt."
Even Darboe's grandma couldn't resist the charm of ECU.
"My grandma said so many times how she got a good vibe from the coaches and the campus," said Darboe.
In eight games last year,the 6-foot-1 230 pound Darboe recorded 80 tackles, 2 forced fumbles, 1 interception, and six sacks.
Though Darboe is originally from Kinston, he has been playing his high school ball at Christchurch high school in Christchurch Va.
