ECU grabs WR Marquis Whidbee
Senior wide receiver Marquis Whidbee (Elizabeth City, N.C./Northeastern) committed Wednesday to sign with East Carolina, the Daily Advance reports.
“They throw the ball, and that’s what I like,” Whidbee, a 6-foot, 180-pound prospect, said. “And I’m not trying to go too far from home.”
Whidbee has been productive in the past two seasons. As a junior, he earned some Class 2A All-State recognition after catching 46 passes for 912 yards and seven touchdowns. Heading into this weekend's playoff contest, Whidbee has hauled in 42 passes for 812 yards and 15 touchdowns.
