Eric Magnuson: “Yes. I have a great relationship with him that was started when I was 15 because he was at SDSU, just 20 min from my house.”

Sean O’Connell: Who was your primary recruiter? How is your relationship with him?

Eric Magnuson: “Coach Ferrigno. I have a GREAT relationship with him.”

Sean O’Connell: Did you grow up a fan of Michigan? Where did the interest come from?

Eric Magnuson: “I didn’t have a favorite team growing up. My interest all came from Coach Hoke going there.”

Sean O’Connell: How did you commit and what was the reaction?

Eric Magnuson: “I had a meeting with Coach Hoke, Coach Ferrigno, Coach Funk and my dad. I just told coach I was ready to commit and they went crazy. It was awesome.”

Sean O’Connell: What other schools did you consider?

Eric Magnuson: “Oklahoma, Notre Dame, Miami, Boise State, Oregon and USC.”

Sean O’Connell: Have you talked to any other kids about coming to Michigan?

Eric Magnuson: “Yes, a lot. I’m trying to help build a national championship team.”

Sean O’Connell: Last one. I know there is a long time until February, but do you think you’ll visit any other schools along the way?

Eric Magnuson: “No, I don’t think I will.”
