ECU made a great move. As soon as Bama found out he could not play in 2010 they pulled his scholarship and gave it to another kid to play this year. He could have stayed in school at Bama and sat out of football for 1 year just like he will at ECU except he would have paid out of state tuition. East Carolina offered the same situation close to home and less expensive.. What many top athletes look for is exposure and ECU also offers a path to the NFL, Alabama has 32 active NFL players while ECU has 15 including a starting QB and #1 running back.
