While preparing East Carolina for another Liberty Bowl trip, coach Skip Holtz may have added the Pirates' quarterback of the future.
Holtz said Friday that former Boston College quarterback Dominique Davis is one of three junior-college transfers who signed letters of intent to play for East Carolina.
Davis helped lead the Eagles to the Atlantic Coast Conference championship game in 2008 but transferred after he was suspended for academic reasons. He landed at Fort Scott Community College in Kansas and led an offense that averaged 492 yards.
Davis will be in the mix to replace Patrick Pinkney, a sixth-year senior whose final game will come Jan. 2 against Arkansas in the Pirates' second straight appearance in the Liberty Bowl.
