Spencer Shines at Auburn Hoops Camp

Class of 2013 prospect Delano Spencer talks about his trip to Auburn and recruiting.

Norcross, Ga.--Athletic Delano Spencer showed why he is receiving attention from colleges with a strong shooting performance at Auburn's one-day camp for basketball prospects.

The six-foot-three, 215-pound guard showed a quick release on his jump shot and the ability to drive to the basket and score. Those skills helped him average 17.5 points and 3.9 assists as a junior for Greater Atlanta Christian.

"The Auburn camp was great," he said. "I love it down there. The environment is nice and the coaches are real cool.

"I am looking forward to checking out other colleges to see where I want to go, but I definitely like Auburn," he added.

A two-sport athlete in high school, who plays quarterback in football, he is also being recruited in both sports. Asked which one he would rather play in college, Spencer said, "It really doesn't matter. I am looking for the best opportunity for me."

Asked which sport is his best, he said, "I would say basketball. I like it more."

Commenting on his basketball skills, Spencer said, "I am a combo guard. I can play the point and I can shoot lights out."

Spencer noted that in basketball he has offers from Ole Miss, Clemson, FAU, Georgia Southern, Furman, Winthrop and is hearing from other colleges. In football he said South Carolina is the school that is recruiting him the hardest.

He said that he has heard from the Auburn football coaches, but the major interest from Auburn is coming from Coach Tony Barbee's staff.

"Auburn is very interested in me and they asked me to come down to the camp," he said. "They said they loved me and are looking forward to getting me down for a visit."
