Want to know a guy that your sons (& daughters) should perhaps emulate as they get into teen years?
Introduce them to Eric May, from Dubuque Wahlert High school. Eric came to Iowa as sort of an
unknown in basketball. Having been an All State QB in Football, it was known he's a great athlete, but....
All he did was play in every game as a true freshman, however, that was a time when the Hawkeyes were in
desperate need of athletes. The lean years, around 2010.
Eric May has been academic All Big Ten, several years, including this year. He is an accounting major, so it's not
like he's a jock studying general studies, or leisure work. In the big man on campus category, Eric gets an A+. One day,
I saw Eric driving with his girlfriend. Let's just say, she is very easy on the eyes.
Last night, in Iowa's Big victory over Virginia at VA..........with the trip to NYC on the line, Eric was the GLUE. He is the guy that holds things together out there. Fine defender, rebounder and last nite, he nailed a couple of Huge 3 pointers.
Congrats to Eric May and his parents. He has be an absolute rock and upstanding, all around all American, Iowa kind of kid. Congrats and good luck, next week to Eric May.
'Texan by birth, Hawkeye by the Grace of God'
Well said. He is a true Hawkeye.
Life is hard. It's really hard if you're stupid.
sky - you hit it right on the head !! we can all be proud of what he has been through and accomplished in his 4 years at IOWA!! He deserves 2 more games!!!!!!
He is the type of player us Hawkeye fans love. Plays hard and maximizes every ounce of talent. He represented the state of Iowa as well as possible. Thanks Eric!
I love the way May has accepted his role this year. His defense, athleticism, and leadership have been vital to Iowa's success this year.
It's awesome that he has had the opportunity to be such a pivotal part on a good team. He was finally healthy this year and has been solid all season, especially defensively. He may have caught a lot of flak the last few years but he was a great representative of the University of Iowa.
Couldn't agree more with above posts - congrats and best of luck going forward - to a kid that could nail the three-ball, play solid defense and drive through the lane for the jam - why not finish with a championship!
Devyn Marble's quote, yesterday on Eric May........'That's my guy, and I love him to death. It brings joy to me to see him having so much fun'
My concern about next year is this. While the Hawkeyes only lose 1 player, that one player is the heart, soul & quiet leader of this team, who is most likely to come up with tough rebounds, loose balls. Someone will need to step-up and do the tough,'dirty' work that Eric May has done so well, this season.
I cast next year's vote for Aaron White. He has got what it takes.
My wife calls Eric May "eye candy".
Question: Is May the last of Lick's recruits on the team, or was Zach McCabe brought in by Lick?
Completely agree with you. He's had a heck of a career on and off the court, and is a great representative of the program and the university.

Bump! He played a great game last night. That three-pointer was a dagger to the heart.
That really was the dagger, as Maryland still had a glimmer of hope if it could get a stop on that possession. Eric is really closing out his college career on a high note.
Eric May did it ALL in last night's win over Maryland.
He rebounds, digs out steals, then DUNKs, hits clutch Free throws and
big, big 3 pointers late. And late in the game, he was the 'point guard' dribbling around,
milking the clock, so Terps could not foul him to stop it. Tremendous!
