With the Flow

Safety Eric Block (6-0, 190, 4.65) from Bellevue (Wash.) visited all the schools on his top five list during his spring break last month. "I went and checked them all out," Block said. "Not one school stood out. Each school has something good to offer."

Block favors Washington State (only offer) slightly over Oregon, Oregon State, California, Stanford and Washington. "Washington State runs a great program. They work hard and I like the coaches a lot," Block said.

"The facilities at Oregon are just amazing. They have the best weight room and equipment," Block said. "The program has a lot of support.

"I like the coaches at Oregon State a lot," Block said. "They remind me of my high school coaches. I like the way they run the practices and the program.

"Cal was a fun place. I like Berkeley a lot. I really like Stanford too. They offer a great education and I really like the campus. I love the whole Stanford aura. Their coaches came by my high school earlier, but I haven't talked with them yet."

Block says he'd still like to commit early. "But I'm just going with the flow. I won't rush it."

He reports a 3.8 GPA and will take the SAT on June 3.
