Eric has covered high school basketball in the state of Indiana for the last five-plus years. He's helped out covering for various sites over that time scouting the best the Hoosier state has to offer. The AAU grind is always considered the best time of the year for him. Recently, starting out as a free site dedicated to Purdue Basketball and Football Recruiting, TheBlackHammer.com grew into new business opportunites and eventually helping lead him to work with 247Sports covering Purdue in less than six months being live.
