Erickson pursues professional basketball career after his senior season is cut short - KDRV

KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. — Seth Erickson has taken his college basketball career one day at a time. Each day, he focused on improving and helping his team compete to their highest ability.

Even when Erickson missed the middle part of his senior season with a broken 4th metacarpal bone, his focus was on getting back to the court to finish out his senior season on the court with his teammates. While he had thought about possibly playing professional basketball after college, it wasn't a priority.

"When I got injured I was really striving to get back and play the end of my year," Erickson said. "'Playing professionally' was kind of in the back of my mind."

The thought didn't make it to the front of his brain until Oregon Tech's, and many other colleges around the nation, season's were cut short due to the quickly spreading novel coronavirus. Left with the feeling that there was still something left in his basketball career, Erickson began to seriously consider a professional career.

"Before the [NAIA National Tournament] this year, or before we flew over to South Dakota, I was looking forward to playing one last time with my teammates," Erickson said. "So when that was kind of taken away from us, I was really motivated to start a professional career. So I'm just ready to get back on the court and see where it takes me."

On May 1st, Erickson announced he would be signing with Promo Sport International as he looked to pursue a career overseas. It's the same sports agency teammate Mitch Fink signed with in April.

For Erickson, he's not sure how long he wants to play professional basketball, but he's eager to try it for a season to see how he feels playing at the next level. 

"I don't really know if I want to make it a super-long career," Erickson said. "I don't know if my body can handle something like that, maybe it will. I just want to play one season over there to start, see how I like it if I enjoy it, you know, playing it professionally and just seeing where that takes me."
