New Jersey Forward Worth Watching This Year

Reporter Mike Sullivan has a player profile look at the individual game of a player from the state of New Jersey ...

Eric Fanning, a 6-foot-5, 200-pound combo forward underclassman from Trenton Central High School in Trenton, New Jersey, is looking to improve his overall game in an effort to better prepare himself down the road for a chance to play college basketball.

He has a big backer in Team NJABC head coach Matt Pauls. "I think he'll be a division one player someday," Pauls said.

"He been hearing from schools that compete in the MAAC, NEC, Southern Conference and America East," Pauls added.


Eric does a nice job in the paint, producing baskets near the rim on second chance efforts. He continues to work on his perimeter game, trying to diversify himself as he prepares for the July evaluation period.

Fanning is a terrific student too. He works very hard on both ends of the court, competing in every possession. He should be an attractive recruit down the road as he plays his junior season this year.
