Louisiana OL Holding with Favorites

<b>Eric Block</b> is one of the top lineman in the state of Louisiana. He has been taking unofficial visits to see schools in the region, and for now he is staying firm with his favorites.

"Alabama and Nebraska are my top two for sure. I'm still wide open but I can say those are my top two right now," said Eric Block.

Block attended the Spring game at Ole Miss.

"It is really a nice school," said Block. "They have a good football program. Everyone seems really nice. They are more tone down than Alabama fans. I spoke with the offensive line coach and the recruiting coordinator, Coach T.D. Wood."

College coaches are on the road for the evaluation period, and Block knows several coaches are expected to drop by his school. "Coach Wood told me that he was going to come and see me at one of our practices. Coach Cutcliffe is going to come as well. Coach Wood has been sending me a lot of hand written letters," Block added.

Block receives a lot of mail on a regular basis. '"I have been receiving around the same amount (mail) from each school. Alabama, Auburn, Ole Miss, LSU, Notre Dame, Nebraska, and Oklahoma State all have sent the same amount," said Block.

Block has not finalized his summer camp schedule but he has some good ideas. "I'm playing with the idea of going to Tom Shaw's speed camp. He has worked with Deion Sanders and the New England Patriots. I will also try to make the one day camps at Alabama and Auburn," Block added.

Block started spring practice this week. "I think we will have a good team this year. The offensive line is young. I'm the only one coming back from last year. We are going to be running Purdue's offense so the quarterback will have more responsibilities. It should be fun. The defense looks really good," Block said.

Block recently received his ACT score and it is a score every football recruit would love to get in the mail. "I made a 29 on my ACT. I will probably take it one more time and try to get at least a 31," said Block.
