North Carolina A&T lands ECU quarterback transfer

Hours after A&T wins the Celebration Bowl it gets a commitment from a former three-star quarterback.

North Carolina A&T lands ECU quarterback transfer

The old adage goes, if you can’t beat ’em, join ’em.

Former East Carolina quarterback Kinglsey Ifedi announced on Saturday that he is transferring to North Carolina A&T. A&T beat East Carolina 28-23 on September 2, knocking off its in-State FBS foe.

A former three-star recruit out of Vance, Ifedi will be a redshirt sophomore with A&T. He saw action in five games last season, completing 3-of-9 passes for 21 yards and two interceptions. He’s 6’3, 215 pounds.

Ifedi’s announcement came just hours after A&T held off Alcorn State for its third Celebration Bowl win in the game’s four-year history. A&T will lose quarterback Lamar Raynard who compiled a 35-2 record as a starter and led the team to back-to-back MEAC and HBCU titles. Ifedi will have to compete with upcoming redshirt-senior Kylil Carter for Raynard’s vacant spot, and possibly another FBS transfer.

There is also another old adage that applies to North Carolina A&T football right now: The rich get richer.
