Stanley speaks about Tech JR Day

Trinity Valley (Fort Worth, Tx.) defensive end Spencer Stanley was among the prospects invited to Louisiana Tech's Junior Day. Get his reaction here.

Spencer Stanley made the trip east down I-20 from Fort Worth to Ruston for Louisiana Tech's Junior Day, and he enjoyed the experience.

"It's a lot different in Ruston than what I'm used to (in the DFW Metroplex), but I had a great time," he said. "I loved meeting the coaches. They emphasized the new buildings, and I was really impressed with the new locker room and weight room.

"Coach (Stan) Eggen is a great man. I absolutely enjoyed talking to him about me potentially becoming a Louisiana Tech Bulldog. I specifically asked him and Coach (Kevin) Curtis about the possibility of getting an offer, and they said they're coming together to watch me practice this spring."

What did Stanley think about Tech's spring game?

"I thought they looked good and I believe Tech will have a strong season," he said. "They have a fast team on both sides of the ball, and I believe I'd fit in great in their system."

Stanley has turned many heads and opened many eyes with his performances on the camp & combine circuit. Several days ago, he impressed at the Dallas-area Under Armour Combine.

"I benched 185 pounds for 23 reps," said Stanley, who ranked in the top 10 (tied for 8th) among all participants in that event. "I also ran a 5.1 in the 40-yard dash -- laser timed -- which was my best laser time ever."

Stanley's 40 time was quite respectable on a day in which the times were exceedingly sluggish. For example, speedy Arlington Bowie RB Russell Hansbrough managed only a 4.7.

This weekend, Stanley will visit Rice, followed by Junior Day at SMU the following week.
