Sproal waits patiently for first offer

Getting a center that can take on athletic defensive tackles as well as make all the line calls is something every school is looking for and Santa Ana C Eric Sproal (6-4, 300) has made a name for himself this year in the pivot after an entire career at tackle. He's still waiting on his first offer, but right now his focus is helping to lead his team to the playoffs...

"I think this season has gone pretty good," Sproal told JCFootball.com. "Moving over from tackle for me has been a lot different, but I like playing center and making the calls and I'm feeling more and more comfortable with things.

"We have a chance at making the playoffs. We have to beat a good Fullerton team on Saturday and then another team has to lose and we get to go. It's pretty complicated, but we have a chance."

Sproal has excellent strength and athleticism for a pivot player and schools from across the country have had their eyes on him.

"I've been in contact with a couple of schools, but I don't have any offers yet," Sproal said. "Michigan State, Miami and Colorado have all been after me for tape of my season and how I've done so I'm just finishing up my highlights and after this weekend's game, I'll get that finished and send it off first thing."

Other schools looking at the talented lineman include Hawaii, Tulsa, New Mexico, Utah State, UNLV and Idaho.

Sproal is still on pace to finish his two-year degree in December and he'll have three years to play three wherever he ends up.
