D-1 Recruit Having Great Season So Far

Reporter Mike Sullivan provides a free look at the individual game of productive wing player Eric Fanning, who will play division one college basketball in New York City ...

Eric Fanning, a 6-foot-5, 205-pound power forward/small forward from The Perkiomen School in Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, is off to a very good start to his last year on the prep level. Eric is averaging 22 points a game for a team that is 8-2 so far this year.

Fanning has the skill level to score from many points on the floor. It helped him land some scholarship offers, including one from Wagner, a division one program based on Staten Island, New York City. He accepted the offer from Wagner a few months back and should be an impact player for four seasons.

DESCRIPTION OF ERIC FANNING'S INDIVIDUAL GAME:

A very productive player from the offensive side of the ball, Eric is working on becoming stronger and preparing to be an impact player for Wagner College, a division one college basketball located on Staten Island in New York City.

SCOUT Alex Kline GIVES US HIS THOUGHTS ON ERIC FANNING'S INDIVIDUAL BASKETBALL GAME:

"Eric does a good job of being versatile at 6-foot-5. He can play the 1, 2 and 3 because of his handle. Fanning is a good shooter, who can become great with some more work. He also attacks the rim, but needs to be much more consistent and confident with his game."

Eric had a terrific 2010-2011 boy's basketball campaign, scoring over 24 points per contest for his team. He also averaged nearly 11 rebounds per game.
