Are Noles Looking West For DE Help?
"Florida State called my coach and they wanted me to call them so I did," The 6-foot-2 and 260 pound pass-rushing specialist with 4.65 40-yard dash speed said. "They told me that that they recently watched my highlight tape and that they liked it a lot. Since they didn't sign a defensive end last year, they would like to sign either two or three of them this year. They told me that one of them would play right away."
Spicer, who is originally from Orlando, list Florida State, Southern Cal, UCLA, Oregon State and Miami as his early top five.
"Florida State was always my favorite team,'" he said. "I like USC a lot also. They play their freshman early. At this time I would say though that UCLA and Oregon State are my top two because they have offered. I feel Florida State and USC are close to offering me though."
Will distance be a factor with him or his family?
"No," he said. "The decision where I attend school will be mine."
The Rancho Cucamonga high school junior has been described by one expert as a freak. The 6-foot-2 and 260 pound standout has an 11.5 100-meter time and he squats an amazing 560 pounds.
"As a freshman I ran the 100-meter in 10.9 seconds but that was when I weighed 40 pounds less," Spicer said. "I would compare my style of play to Simeon Rice because I rush the passer well."
As a junior he earned a spot on the all-state team by recording 60 tackles and 16 sacks.
Over the summer Spicer has plans to attend the Oregon State and Florida State football camps.
The Florida native is an excellent student who should have no problems qualifying academically. He has a 2.8 grade point average and an 860 score on the SAT test.
