JUCO All-American headed to East Carolina

Over the past two seasons, the top JUCO back in the country, from a productivity standpoint, has been Arizona Western's Reggie Bullock (5-9, 180). This week, the talented back with quickness who can run between the tackles just as well as he can get outside and run away from people, made a commitment to East Carolina and he said his family knew before he did that it was the best place for him...

"I committed to East Carolina," a proud Bullock told JCFootball.com. "They had been recruiting me for a while and I really respected coach Ruff (Ruffin McNeill) and what he's about.

"They have a lot of good players they are bringing in there and they have had a lot of success.

"On my visit (January 14th) I got a look at their academic side and I was really impressed. That was number one for me and that's when I knew it was the place I wanted to be."

Even though he was sure he wanted to become a Pirate, Bullock still went home uncommitted because he wanted to consult his family.

"Once I got home, they told me they already knew where I needed to be and where I needed to go," Bullock said with a bit of a chuckle. "I was like 'wow' and that was it. I was sold and I committed to coach Ruff and the staff recently and I'm excited for the next step."

Bullock's lack of size is the only thing that has been holding him back from receiving offers from schools in the BCS conferences, but even with his smallish frame, he was a workhorse for the Gauchos the past two seasons totaling over 3,300 yards and 42 touchdowns while not missing a game.

He chose East Carolina over offers from New Mexico State, Utah State, Memphis, North Texas and Arkansas State.

The talented back will finish up his AA degree in May and he will have three years to play two once he steps on campus.
