Connecticut lineman Eric Ball took his first official visit this past weekend, to Syracuse. The Orangemen were his favorite team prior to the visit. Did he make a commitment?

"Nope, nothing yet," Eric said Sunday evening when asked if he committed to Syracuse during his official visit this past weekend.  "They're coming up to my house Wednesday, so I'll talk to them about everything then.  I'll know by the middle of this week."

Sophomore wide-receiver Andre Fontenette was Eric's host this weekend at Syracuse.

"I definitely liked everything I saw, the campus and everything.  The coaches are real nice.  Everything was exactly like I expected.  I actually went to the Dome to watch the BC/Syracuse basketball game and that was exciting too.  I was really impressed with everything.  The people were friendly, so it was a good atmosphere."

Coach Pasqualoni and Coach Goldman will visit Eric on Wednesday.  What are the chances he could commit to Syracuse then?

"Probably about 80%," he admitted.

If he does commit to the Orangemen this week, Eric indicated that he would not take the rest of his scheduled official visits.
