Irving (Texas) MacArthur three-star athlete Eric Childs is a big reason why his team is 5-0 on the season and why MacArthur whipped Coppell 48-0 this past Friday night.
“I had a few tackles here, a few tackles there, and I blocked a few passes,” Childs, who is playing defensive end but could project also as an outside linebacker, said.
“I really have gotten better on the technical side and just learning everything. I’m better at watching film and picking up tendencies. I’m just an overall better football player now.”
Childs, who is 6-foot-2 and 196 pounds, committed early in the recruiting process to Kansas State. With college coaches again able to contact recruits, could Childs be thinking twice about being a Wildcat?
“I’m still firmly committed to Kansas State,” Childs said. “I really haven’t gotten many other calls because they all know that I’m committed to Kansas State. I missed the game against A&M the other night because I was with my brother, but I know they fought really hard and almost pulled it out.
“I’m going to set up my visit up there really soon. I’m being recruited by coach Elliott. He’s a real cool guy. I’ve gotten to know him a lot better, and now we just hang out when we talk on the phone. He’s really part of the family now.”
Childs had offers from Arizona State, Colorado State, Iowa, Missouri, Texas Tech, Washington State and Tulsa when he committed to Kansas State.
