He was touted at the time as the #1 heavyweight recruit a few years back - what happened to him?

Flunked out of school.  Went to Garndview (I think) to get grades up and didn't work out

Wow.  :(  Couldn't he take PE classes and such to get by?  I think trying to push Eric into being an MD or lawyer backfired on ISU.   Double :(

Thought he transferred to UNI? Talent without discipline doesn't amount to much.

He might be there now.  I do think he is back in the Cedar Falls area.  Not wrestling and I don't think he is at UNI.

Are his aspirations to be "a milk-faced, gas pumper, typical bozo"?
