Mind Made Up?

Owen Spencer has his mind made up in recruiting, but the Leland (N.C.) North Brunswick wide receiver is taking his time before making everything official.

Owen Spencer has his mind made up in recruiting, but the Leland (N.C.) North Brunswick wide receiver is taking his time before making everything official.

"It was between Virginia Tech and NC State, and I am going to commit to State in a couple of weeks," says the 6-foot-2, 165 pounder. "I am just waiting to get back to school and into football again first."

With some time before everything is finalized, is there anything that the Hokies, or anyone else for that matter, could do to change Spencer's mind?

"Not really. I just liked the interest they had in me, I love the program, and I really like the wide receivers coach, Dwayne Dixon. It is close to home, my family can come see me any time, and I feel real confident that I can play early."

Spencer will be in Raleigh for the NC State-Virginia Tech game in early September. Who does he think will win that huge ACC battle?

"I get to see NC State and Virginia Tech on the 4th," Spencer said. "State's going to take that one. They have the #1 defense in the league, and they are stepping it up on offense. They have a lot of young talent coming in, and it should spark the offense."

Spencer caught 30 passes for 802 yards and 13 touchdowns as a junior and begins his first practice as a senior later today.

"I think I"m going to have an even better season than last year," Spencer said. "I have high expectations for the year and for myself."


Stats: Last season, Spencer helped lead North Brunswick to a 10-2 record (7-0 conference). He posted astounding numbers, as he caught 30 passes for 802 yards (26.7 yards per catch) and 13 touchdowns, nearly a touchdown every two receptions.

Spencer Quotable: "I have speed, and ability to go get the ball and dominate any defender – I'm able to get separation."
