Guards KJ Davis , Tyler Foster , DeShaun Wade and Tae Hardy , and forward Justin Whatley have all entered the portal and are expected to leave the program. The departures give head coach Joe Dooley and his staff room to make some important offseason additions and upgrade the talent heading into their second year. ECU is coming off a disappointing 10-21 overall season, including a 3-15 mark in American Athletic Conference play.
