Erik’s Coach: “Erik’s a very athletic and aggressive player. He’s a really big kid too and he hits all the benchmarks that you’re looking for in a football player, especially at offensive tackle. He works really hard on his academics and tries to stay ahead in all of his work. I believe the last time I checked with him and his parents, he was going to be able to graduate and start college early.”

On Committing (24/7 Sports): "It is just the right fit. UM has everything I am looking for and I feel like the program is really headed in the right direction"

On Michigan: “This place is awesome, just what I expected it to be. I didn’t waste any time. When you know, you know. I got in last night [Thursday] and spent the whole day on campus today. I got that special feeling about this place and love all the coaches.”


Sean O’Connell “Erik is a very physical and aggressive blocker. He has great size at 6’5” 290 pounds and is another very athletic lineman. He is one of the top OL’s in California this year and in my opinion, one of the top 15 or so in the country. Magnuson is trying to enroll early and with his size, could possibly see the playing field early. Erik is an outstanding get for Michigan and has the ability to be a very, very good player.”

Scouts Inc, “Magnuson is a tough inline blocker capable of dominating opponents with his good upper body playing strength. Has the size along with enough athleticism for the offensive tackle position at the major level of competition. Although we detect some lower body stiffness this prospect manages to play with good balance and agility when in space; comes off the ball hard when drive blocking but will need to improve his explosion, initial quickness and first step … Magnuson has the physical tools to be a successful offensive tackle at the major level of competition. However we don’t see an immediate starter, rather a player needing some time and perhaps a red shirt year to improve his athleticism and pass protection skills.”
