East Carolina is undergoing a major roster overhaul after Joe Dooley’s first season back as coach. Six players have expressed their intentions to transfer with ten players either signed or committed to come aboard the Pirate ship. Dooley and staff secured signed grants-in-aid or verbal pledges from half a dozen of the incoming talents in the last ten days.
Dooley has placed a premium on adding size to the ECU talent pool as well as proven 3-point shooting in fulfilling the objective of winning in the American Athletic Conference. The Pirates have gone after junior college players on a large scale to upgrade the contributing player personnel immediately.
