"I committed (to East Carolina)," a happy Holton told JCFootball.com. "I also had offers from Marshall and Western Kentucky and Georgia Southern was talking to me a lot.

"When I went on the visit I just felt like I was back at home at it was just a great fit for me.

"The (ECU) coaches were surprised and super-excited."

As a freshman last season, Holton started all but two games for GMC, posting a team-high eight pass breakups while racking up 18 tackles and two interceptions.

He is on pace to finish up his two-year degree in December and he will have three years to play two following the 2016 football season.
