Everyday a star is born and Eric Weary Jr may just be the next big one hailing from New Orleans. Eric is a 6’5 freshman guard for New Mexico State, who’s looking forward to playing this up coming season in the WAC (Western Athletic Conference). After red shirting last year and having the chance to be a part of the Aggies while they made it to the first round of the NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Tournament, Eric now looks to put his imprint on the game.
After looking at Eric play on film I must say, this guy is something special and has the potential to one day wear a NBA uniform. With having Kobe as one of the ball players that truly inspired him, Mr.Weary most definitely seemed to be capable of having that “killer instinct”. While playing for Warren Easton Charter High School in New Orleans, La. as a senior, he averaged 25.3 points per game for the Eagles, a mark that led the New Orleans metro area. The homie GETS BUCKETS…….
