Eric Fanning, a 6-foot-5, 200-pound hard-working power forward/small forward prospect from The Perkiomen School in Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, has generated recruiting interest from several conferences, according to Team NJABC head coach Matt Pauls.

"He has interest from schools in the CAA, MAAC, NEC, A-10 and CUSA" said Pauls.

Team NJABC, an AAU team that has placed 11 individuals in division one scholarships, according to Pauls, has become one of the more respected boy's basketball programs in the country.

Eric is just a junior, reclassified to the class of 2012, giving him more opportunities to land division one offers over the next year.

CURRENT SERIOUS RECRUITING INTEREST:

Stony Brook, Colgate, Coastal Carolina, UMES, The Citadel, St. Francis of Pennyslvania, Army, and Quinnipiac.

WHAT MATT PAULS PREVIOUSLY SAID ABOUT ERIC FANNING AND HIS INDIVIDUAL GAME:

"He practices hard all the time, always looking to make improvements in his game."

PREVIOUS EVALUATION OF ERIC FANNING'S INDIVIDUAL GAME:

Eric is a solid student too, opening up some academic options if he wishes to explore them over the next two seasons.

Eric competes very hard on both ends of the court, working hard on every possession.
