Big and getting bigger

This young man is big. Standing 6-6, Erik's frame is a commodity, but only if it's combined with the ability to play the game. He can do that as colleges see him as big but nimble, having great feet and Bergland has the type of potential that could make hima steal for anyone.

Erik Bergland Beaverton, OR OL-6'6-278-5.2/40 Currently having only 2 offers to this point doesn't sound that impressive, but having one of them from a major university certainly changes things. "Well, right now I only have 2 offers, one from PSU and one from Washington." Now before you get all excited, the PSU stands for Portland State University.

"When Washington offered it was a pretty big thing for me, I didn't even start playing football until I was 16" Now along with Washington, schools like Nebraska, Oregon, and Oregon St. have started their weekly calls.

All the coaches that have been in contact with Erik have been impressed with his mobility for a big man "They're looking at me for offensive tackles, everyone seems to be impressed with my movement."

No officials have been set up and he is uncertain of his current top 5 schools but Washington, Nebraska, and PSU (Portland) were mentioned as top contenders.

Erik has taken his SAT but is currently waiting on his score, he seemed to have very little doubt that he did exceptionally well, and currently has a 3.21 core GPA on a 4.0 scale
