How is Washington-Wilkes doing this season?

I notice you are going to Georgia this weekend but you didn't mention them in the teams that are recruiting you?

"They haven't been saying much to me right now. They haven't really been recruiting me that hard."

Is there a team that you like more than the others?

"Yes sir, there is one. I really like Georgia Tech a lot. I mean I like everything about them. I love the offense they run. To me the stadium is one of the best around. It is unique. I love the facilities and one other thing that I like is that their business school is very good. I want to be an accountant and the business school up at Tech is very good. I just love everything about Georgia Tech. The team is playing real good and the players are like a tight knit group of friends. I know they are a school I'd love to go to. I'm looking forward to meeting all the recruits and coaches at Georgia Tech and getting to know them better."

Have you given any thoughts to what Junior Days you want to go to next year?

"I hope to go to Georgia Tech and Florida State for sure and any others that will invite me."

Dale's Take:

Eric was very up front that he has Georgia Tech as a clear leader at this point in his recruiting. He loves the way Coach Johnson has Georgia Tech playing and loves the offense. In my opinion when Georgia Tech offers he will be one that will commit right then. He likes them that much.
