ECU, Staff reports
Wednesday, November 14, 2018
The first day of the recruiting early signing period saw Joe Dooley and East Carolina basketball sign three guards on Wednesday in Logan Curtis, Tyrie Jackson and Tremont Robinson.
Jackson is a transfer from Northwest Florida State College and Robinson is currently attending Garden City (Kan.) Community College, while Curtis is a senior at Calvert Hall College (Md.) High School.
Like current Pirate forward Seth LeDay, Jackson is a former Virginia Tech Hokie. He averaged 7.2 minutes per game in 28 contests at Va. Tech last year and will have two years of eligibility remaining at ECU.
Robinson, who is redshirting this season at Garden City, will have three years of eligibility available. He is 6-foot-1 point guard originally from Little Rock, Ark.
“I’m excited about it and I think they add a lot of athleticism,” Dooley said before Wednesday’s practice. “We need some toughness, too.”
Curtis, a 6-foot-4 guard from Baltimore, averaged 17.0 points, 7.0 rebounds, and 3.0 assists his junior season.
“He’s got a lot of upside and he’s off to a great start this year,” Dooley said in a release. “His high school coach has bragged about what a great leader he’s been and how hard he’s been working.”
