Stanley was the driver in a single-vehicle accident and is at Vidant Medical Center. Issac Harris, the passenger and a fellow lineman for ECU, was also transported to Vidant and released after precautionary evaluations were completed.
A defensive end from Southport, N.C, Stanley started 12 of 13 games as a sophomore for the Pirates during the 2013 season and stood among the team's top 10 tacklers with 46 stops. He also ranked second on the unit with 7.0 sacks and was third with 10.0 tackles for lost yardage to earn All-Conference USA (honorable mention) honors.
Harris, from Irmo, S.C., opened 12 of 13 contests at the left offensive tackle position and played a key role in East Carolina's record-setting 10-3 campaign that included school single-season records in points scored, scoring average, total yards and passing yards.
Both players were on their way to ECU from their off-campus residence when the accident took place.
