Summary

What Eric lacks in weight & strength he makes up for with athletic ability & explosivness. He has a quick first step to get into the paint anytime he wants and is very dynamic in the open court. If he gets going down hill the defense is at his mercy. He has good touch to finish in the lane with with runners and floaters. He is a capable defender that plays the passing lanes well and has the length to be a good on ball defender on the perimeter. He does need to put on some weight and add some much needed muscle to sustain himself at the next level.

Coming Soon...

Notes

Hard in the Paint - Atlanta, GA - 11/24/2018


He seemed to be everywhere on the court. He got to paint at will, shot it off the dribble from the 3 point line, jumped the passing lanes for steals and breakaway dunks while also doing a good job of defended the ball handlers on the perimeter.


Nike EYBL - Emerson, GA - 4/27/2019


Knocked down C&S 3's, got into the lane and finished with contact. Found open teammates for an easy layups. Defended the perimeter and played the passing lanes well.


Tournament of Champions - Marietta, GA - 12/7/2019


Really quick hands, getting his hands on loose balls and coming up with passing lane/on-ball steals. Gets downhill in a hurry in transition, covers a lot of ground with his long strides. Appears to have picked up some much-needed strength. Very athletic, will put it on your head if you fall asleep.


TOC Holiday - Marietta, GA - 12/27/2019


Doing a great job of finding teammates for easy buckets. Playing in the PnR a little, turing the corner looking to attack. He has the ability to get anywhere he wants off the dribble, explosive when he drops his shoulders to attack.


Region Game - Lithonia, GA - 1/31/2020


This was a ups and down for Eric, he started the game off great with his teams first 7 points on 2 dunks & an And1. He than began to take a lot of tough wild shots which he did not connect. He found his feel in the 2nd half as he knocked down several deep C&S 3's. He got into the lane and found teammates and finised with   contact. He still needs to work on his shot selection and turnovers.

Coming Soon...
