Seth LeDay has set his sights on completing his college eligibility at East Carolina after announcing his departure last month from Virginia Tech.
The 6-7, 200-pound forward, the brother of recently-graduated Hokies star Zach LeDay, could potentially have an early impact for ECU, which lost two frontcourt players with the graduation of Andre Washington and the transfer of Deng Riak.
Seth LeDay was required by the NCAA to sit out 2016-17 at Tech because he played at two different junior colleges in the previous two years. He logged stellar seasons at Seminole State (OK) College in 2014-15 and Northwest Mississippi Community College in 2015-16 before joining his brother in Blacksburg last season.
The Pirates will apply for an NCAA waiver to gain immediate eligibility for LeDay, reported 247sports.com. LeDay has two years of eligibility remaining.
LeDay was recruited as a high school star at The Colony in Dallas, TX, by Virginia Tech and Texas Tech, among other schools.
LeDay joins 7-foot Bismarck (ND) College transfer Usman Haruna, 6-8 Chesapeake (VA) Oscar Smith High School forward Justin Whatley and 6-6 Portsmouth (VA) Norcom High School small forward Kevin “K.J.” Davis in ECU’s recruiting class of 2017-18.
