Head Coach Alan Dils on Eriksson:
"I'm excited to have Chris on the team. He is a great guy. He has been to a couple of other colleges and now we have him. He has a redshirt this year so we are going to work on his fitness and getting him up to speed at our university. If he works hard this year, I think he has a good chance of contributing his senior year."
