Now that the class is officially in, which commit are you most excited about seeing develop over the next five years?
Big East...err...AAC Bound.
I want to see how Benkert develops.
I'm biased because I saw him dominate in person, but Trevon Brown by far (assuming that he qualifies).

There ar 4 that standout in all the highlights I've seen
- The suprise pick: Grayson
Mike Meyers. He jumped out the most to me on film. Has good athleticism for a big guy, has great feet, hands, and gets off the ball good. He was always in the backfield. Most of his highlight tape seemed to be tackles for a loss, which is nice to see from a DT. Hope it translates to the next level. He is my favorite though.
I really like quite a few but If I had to pick 1 give me Mumford. He is 228 now. A year from now your looking at 240-245 and can really run. I think he is going to be a hell of an inside LB. Also with him enrolling in school he will have a huge advantage with a spring football under his belt. Really like Travon Brown that kid has NFL written all over him as a wideout.
Damn. Pirate Al stole mine. So now if I say "Mumford" everyone will say "youre only saying that because Pirate Al said that"
Luckily this class leaves lots of great choices.
Lets go with Lane. Runs low to the ground and hard as hell, much like D. Lindsay, but with an extra 25-30 lbs in the trunk for that extra pop. Has possibly the highest chance of making an impact next year. Could make a positive 10% difference in our 3rd down conversion rate, and make us much harder to scheme against defensively if we cycle him in and out with our smaller, shiftier backs.
Show me a good loser, and I'll show you a loser"
Benton. guy looks like a legit DB. could see him getting some PT towards the middle of the season if he progresses nicely, and if the guys we've got there all ready aren't playing well.

I'm gonna go with Davon Grayson, I don't know why but he's stood out to me from the beginning.
Lane for me, big shifty back that can make a big impact.
the heart of a Pirate.
the chip of a Pirate.
the blood of a Pirate.
check out McGill
Brunson. Guy is a playmaker. Really we got 2 outstanding linebackers. We desperately need to upgrade our speed here and we did.
Call me back when we play for real.
I've got 2 I really like, Trevon Brown with his height and elite speed. Then my dark horse is Brandon Smith the guy is huge 6'8 320+ and an early enrolled freshman can't wait to see how he turns out.
Reading that got my blood flowing
My favorite is........
Mumford and Brunson are up there.
I also want to see Dowdell and how this staff will utilize him.
On D, we got at least 3 beastly men, Mumford, Brunson & Myers can all just abuse people. LT if he gets here will be special. Then there's McGill, Donaldson...kinda like celebrating Christmas in the Playboy mansion...which one, why one??
On Off, Benkert & Brown have star written on them...while so many others have great talent or appear to be great kids...
My adopt-a-Pirate, Lance Ray, LRay
Brandon smith. He needs to be the first one off the bus and on the field every game(Stole that from pr). How intimidating would that be?
Mumford. Great kid. Met him during one of his visits the weekend of the UNCheat game in 2011. Made it clear to me that ECU was the school for him and he never wavered thereafter. That's saying a lot these days.. His heart is here in Dowdy Ficklen and I can't wait to see him defend it on Saturdays.
Also I'm excited about Benton. He should be a play maker. Magz type.

Mumford sounds like a good pirate.
Definitely Tristan Mumford. Saw him on campus the day of last year's Spring Game. He was one of those guys who just looked like a stud. Seemed confident in a calm quiet way and good size.
Looked him up and watched his video when I got home later that night. Wow! What a football player! Running back, linebacker, quarterback- just a player. Love that kind of kid who is able to fill various roles in high school.
Being enrolled early getting acclimated to classes & conditioning and focused on linebacker, he's gonna be a beast.
Additionally, love Terrell Lane. I think he will really push Coop for carries.
Had a chance to talk with Connors before the banquet, and said Mumford is already pushing 240 and is obviously a freak athlete. It is awesome we got him here early, he could be a special one!
He also spoke of how well Brandon Smith can move at his size, and I believe he is well over 320 now.
Favorite signee though..McGill
Matau, Brandon Smith, Mumford, and McGill are the ones I am most excited to see get on the field
JULY 1st, 2014 cannot get here soon enough!
