Tears Updates Status

2015 Richards (Ill.) wide receiver Spencer Tears talks about the latest in his recruiting process since opening back up.

Richards (Ill.) rising senior wide receiver Spencer Tears has reopened his recruitment, and is starting to get some new interest.

The 6-foot-2, 175 pound three-star prospect originally gave his commitment to Nebraska after a spring visit, but decided to step back and re-evaluate his decision as the summer started.

"Recruiting is going nice as of right now," Tears said. "Kansas and Connecticut have been in contact with me a few times, and I am still talking to Purdue and Bowling Green too."

The two schools that have most recently started showing interest in Tears, Kansas and Connecticut have been giving him very positive reviews.

"They both said they love my game because I am a game changer and they need a playmaker on the team," Tears said. "So they both told me that they are real interested."

Recruiting wise, Tears is planning on slowing down the process this fall and focusing on his senior season.

"As of now no I am not planning any other visits," Tears said. "I'm focusing on the season and my boys."

Richards boasts Tears, quarterback Hasan Muhammad-Rogers, and fellow recruited receiver Romello Boykin.

"We can be very, very dangerous," Tears said. "We have weapons everywhere literally. Our offense this year is a whole different story, and it's scary."

At this point, Tears has turned almost all his attention to the fast approaching opening weekend.

"I am looking forward to just getting back on the field and balling," Tears said. "I feel like we got some unfinished business."

Tears has not received any new offers in the past month, and holds offers from Western Michigan, Purdue, Indiana, Akron, Bowling Green and others.
