inRecruit welcomes USA Today's Eric Prisbell

USA Today's Eric Prisbell joins inRecruit

inRecruit is pleased to welcome Eric Prisbell of the USAToday to the inRecruit platform.

Eric Prisbell is a national college basketball writer at USA TODAY. He is a national, award-winning investigative and feature journalist who has covered all aspects of college sports for 14 years through print, audio, television and multimedia platforms.

Hailing from New Jersey, Eric graduated from Rutgers University (NJ) with a degree in Journalism. Upon graduating Rutgers, Eric spent three years covering the Fresno State men’s basketball team for the Fresno Bee in Fresno, CA. Subsequently, Eric was a dynamic college sports reporter for more than eight years at the Washington Post. While at the Washington Post, Eric co-authored an exhaustive three-part series on Maryland’s basketball recruiting, which won second place in the 2009 Associated Press Sports Editors projects category. Eric also appeared weekly on Comcast SportsNet’s Washington Post Live television show from 2007-2011 doing live shots from events, interviewing prominent sports figures and providing analysis on local and national college topics.

Eric joined the USAToday in July 2012 where his uncanny ability to investigate matters and to uncover seemingly unreachable facts continued. Eric was the first to break the national story about former Kansas Jayhawk basketball player, Ben McLemore, accepting more than $10,000 in cash, gifts and trips from a middleman courting McLemore on behalf of sports agents and financial advisers.

 Another one of Eric’s stories for USAToday regarding Gabrielle Ludwig, a 50-year-old transsexual junior college women’s basketball player who had last played college basketball three decades earlier as a man with a different name, was featured on HBO’s ‘Real Sports’ and won fourth place in Associated Press Sports Editors features category.

“Eric is an dynamic, national sports journalist who has mastered the ability to break fascinating stories in the age of digital journalism.  His ability to research and unearth pertinent information as well as his interviewing finesse is unmatched in the industry. It’s an honor to have Eric Prisbell join the inRecruit sports network,” said Joseph Rocco co-founder of inRecruit.
