Pirates hit junior college ranks to bolster recruiting class

East Carolina coach Scottie Montgomery wanted the Pirates to find immediate help on defense.

Montgomery unveiled his second recruiting class with the Pirates Wednesday, a group that includes 10 mid-year enrollees and features six junior college signees - four coming on the defensive side of the ball.

Montgomery said he doesn't "necessarily like to be in the junior-college business quite as much as we were this time" as opposed to bringing in freshmen out of high school, but it was out of necessity after the Pirates struggled defensively in a three-win season.
