Rivers Signs Letter-of-Intent with ECU

From ECU Media Relations

GREENVILLE  — Belton Rivers, generally regarded as one of the top backcourt prospects in the Southeast, has signed a national letter-of-intent to attend East Carolina University, according to an announcement made by Pirate head men`s basketball coach Bill Herrion today.
Rivers, a 6-3, 185-pound combo guard, has been a standout performer at Douglass High School in Atlanta. As a senior this past season, Rivers averaged 32.0 points and six rebounds per game. A starter on the varsity since his sophomore season, Rivers has been named all-conference each of the past three seasons. He was also named Team MVP as both a junior and senior.
"With this recruiting class, we're looking to add more depth on the perimeter and Belton helps us fill that need," said Pirate head coach Bill Herrion. "The thing we really liked about Belton is the fact that he can score. He is a very aggressive offensive player and can play either guard position."
"Belton is very excited about attending East Carolina," said Douglass head coach Frank Robinson. "He is an outstanding student and basketball player."
Rivers joins a recruiting class which also includes Kinston High School's Corey Rouse, a second team all-state performer in North Carolina, who inked with ECU during the early signing period last November.
