Combine Coach's Overall Comments
Erick played as a wise guy. He found some success on either flank, but preferred left. Solid technical player, but must separate himself more from the group. Could be too predictable in his movements and disappearance in the games at stretches. Struggled with the physicality of the game at times. A very good engine and work rate. He tracked well defensively, but can improve on 1v1 defending.
