Eric Block Profile
"I like to sit back and read the play," Block said. "I have good instincts and can make the play. I have great agility and speed and can break on the ball really well. I'd like to improve my strength and size. I want to be able to overpower guys more and make bigger hits. I also want to lower my 40 time and improve my quickness."
Block benches 255 pounds and squats 380. He has a vertical jump of 34-inches.
His father, Scott Block, played wide receiver for Washington State and the Cougars are Block's only offer thus far. "My dad is leaving it up to me," Block said. "I grew up liking them a lot and would always watch their games. It's a good program and they are always pretty competitive. They are only about four a half hours away."
The Cougars have a slight lead over Washington, Oregon, California and Stanford. "Washington is right by my house," Block said. "It's only about 10 minutes away, but the distance doesn't matter to me too much. I like coach Tyrone Willingham a lot. He's helping the program a lot and they are making the right moves forward. Also, I know a few guys there already because we are so close. I went to their junior day earlier this month and had a good time."
So far Block doesn't plan on attending any camps this summer, but he will be visiting Oregon, Cal and Stanford during his spring break (April 10). "I've already been to Oregon, but I've never been to Cal or Stanford so I'm excited about that trip. Oregon has a really nice campus. I love the city area and it seems like a fun college town. I think I'd have a lot of fun living there.
"I think I'd rather get the whole recruiting thing out of the way somewhat early. The coaches are gonna be real important in my decision. Also, I really want to like where I live for the next four years."
Block reports a 3.8 GPA, but has not scheduled the SAT or ACT yet.
