Fanning had a chance to showcase his skills at the St. Joseph's basketball camp in Philadelphia, Penn.
Pauls said Fanning's ability to be a productive player on the offensive end has many college coaches interested early in his recruiting process.
"Eric played well at the St. Joe's camp," said Pauls. "They saw that he works hard on the offensive boards too. He scores many of his points on second, third, and fourth opportunities. He just doesn't quit near the rim."
Fanning is working hard this summer on improving his perimeter game. "His mid-range game is getting better," said Pauls.
Fanning, a 2011 prospect, is also a terrific student, giving him ample opportunities with strong academic schools too.
Eric competes for talented head coach Randy Morrison at Trenton Central.
