East Carolina football head coach Mike Houston answers questions during a press conference on signing day at Ward Sports Medicine building on Wednesday, Dec. 15.

The East Carolina football team added players to next season’s roster on Wednesday as a large part of its 2022 recruiting class signed during the December early signing period.

Pirates coach Mike Houston noted that the team isn’t entirely finished and could add more players in the coming days and in the spring. ECU signed 18 players in all, including 13 high school athletes and two junior college players. The other three signees came via transfers from Division I programs.
