Sleeper boards the Pirate ship

East Carolina has secured a commitment from under-the-radar three-star offensive tackle Jonathan McLaughlin (Mauldin, S.C.), according to multiple sources.

The 6-foot-4, 285-pound senior officially visited the Pirates last weekend. Marshall received an official visit from McLaughlin for the weekend of January 13th. Wake Forest and Florida International also extended scholarship offers.

East Carolina's class of 18 commits includes Under Armour All-American safety Lucas Thompson (Winter Garden, Fla./West Orange) and five three-star prospects.
