Rocket Digest recently caught up with Eric and he discussed his recruitment. "I don't have any offers yet, but I should be getting some in the near future," Eric told Rocket Digest. He is being recruited by several schools, despite not having a current offer. His list includes Toledo, Kent State, Ball State, Ohio University, Syracuse, Michigan State, Missouri, Northwestern, Minnesota, Georgia Tech, and LSU.

He has visited Toledo's campus. "I really was impressed with Toledo's facilities, staudium, and the campus itselft," Eric said. "The atmosphere is really nice too."

So where does Toledo stand in his recruitment?

"If I don't get any offers from BCS schools, I picture myself making an impact to the Toledo football team," Duale said.

Eric would definitely like to go to a BCS school. His three favorites right now are Missouri, Minnesota, and Georgia Tech. However, if he does not get an offer from a BCS school Toledo would have a great chance at signing a great kicker that has an extremely strong leg.

As for making his commitment, Eric says that he wants to wait until he gets a couple of offers to choose from, but he does have a timeframe that he would like to follow. "I want to try and commit within a month of signing day, if I have any by then," Eric said.

Rocket Digest will keep you updated on Eric's senior season of football at Highland High School, and his status as a Toledo Rocket football prospect.
