Moghaddam picks ECU
* FOOTBALL: Former Orange Coast College and Newport Harbor High
defensive tackle Nick Moghaddam signed a national letter of intent
Friday to attend East Carolina University, a Division I school, in
Moghaddam, who made 23 tackles and added a sack, despite missing
time with a knee injury as a Coast sophomore last season, flew to the
Greenville campus earlier this week to meet with coaches and players
and decided to accept a full scholarship.
"[The Pirates] play good teams. They open against West Virginia
[Sept. 4]," said Moghaddam, a 6-foot-4, 266-pound lineman. "I wanted
to compete at the highest level."
Moghaddam, a former All-Newport-Mesa defensive selection, said he
was impressed with Jerry Odom and John Grieco, East Carolina's
defensive coordinator and strength and conditioning coach,
respectively. Both Odom and Grieco came to East Carolina, which
competes in Conference USA, from the University of Florida.
San Jose State also pursued Moghaddam.
"[East Carolina coaches] gave me a summer workout plan and want me
to gain four or five pounds," said Moghaddam, who is finishing a
class at Coast and will leave for Greenville Aug. 8.
He will major in business.
