TS: What's your commitment status?

EF: "I'm still looking at a lot of schools and narrowing down my list."

TS: What's your top five?

EF: "Texas Tech, Texas, Texas A&M, LSU and Houston."

TS: Are they ranked in that order?

EF: "No, all of these schools are about even right now."

TS: What interests you in Texas Tech?

EF: "Texas Tech is a good school, and they have a lot of tradition. I've heard the campus is nice and it's located in a college town where everyone is excited about Tech. Plus, I've always liked their colors."

TS: What sets you apart from other Texas Tech recruits?

EF: "Probably my ability to lead and the all-out intensity and enthusiasm that I bring to the game."

TS: Where do you need improvement?

EF: "I plan to improve on every aspect of my game."

TS: What's your opinion of Mike Leach and the Texas Tech football program?

EF: "I think it's all positive. I've heard good things about both Coach Leach and the direction Red Raider football is heading. I think they're going to be pretty tough this year."

TS: Do you think you could be an immediate impact player for Texas Tech?

EF: "Without question, but you know, a lot of that is up to the coaches."

TS: When do plan to make your commitment?

EF: "Well, I haven't taken any of my five visits yet, so I definitely want to do that first. I want to check out all of the schools and meet a lot of players, students and teachers. Then, I'll make my commitment."

TS: What factors will influence your decision most heavily?

EF: "Obviously my family, then the program, coaches and the community. It's very important to me that I can be a impact player immediately and translate that into four years of success on and off the field."

TS: Have you taken the ACT/SAT?

EF: "I've taken the SAT and ACT and they should both be coming in anytime now."

TS: You'll play quarterback this season, but what position do you anticipate playing in college?

EF: "It really doesn't matter, I just want to play."

TS: Eric, thanks for your time tonight and good luck next season.

EF: "Thank you."
