SCOUT Alex Kline GIVES US HIS THOUGHTS ON ERIC FANNING'S INDIVIDUAL BASKETBALL GAME:
"Eric does a good job of being versatile at 6-foot-5. He can play the 1, 2 and 3 because of his handle. Fanning is a good shooter, who can become great with some more work. He also attacks the rim, but needs to be much more consistent and confident with his game."
