Brown signs; Spring reboots
All rights reserved.
Marquan Brown, a speedster
out of Gray's Creek High School in Cumberland County who was the second
player to commit to East Carolina's
February, 2008, signing class, signed
with the Pirates last week, according to a Fayetteville Observer report.
Although there have been
indications that Brown may be challenged to qualify academically, the
delay was attributed to a mix-up in the paper work necessary for him to
sign the national letter.
Brown had some remarkable
40-yard times in workouts prior to his senior season, including a
sub-4.2 second clocking. Although he lined up a lot as a running back
for the Bears and was recruited by ECU running backs coach Junior Smith,
Brown is projected as a receiver/returner for the Pirates.
Spring practice restart
ECU football coach Skip
Holtz postponed the scheduled start of spring practice on Wednesday. The
Pirates were supposed to go out in shorts and shimmels and work on
aspects of the passing game.
High wind and chilly
temperatures made practice impractical so Holtz called an audible on
Wednesday. Spring workouts will start on Friday with a date to be added
to replace Wednesday's cancellation.
