Spencer: 'I Know Where I Want To Be'

Over the weekend NC State hosted prospects from all over the region who were on official visits. What did one of the Pack's earlier commitments think of his time in Raleigh?

"I had a great time up there," said Owen Spencer of North Brunswick High School in Leland, NC. "It was great to hang out with all the guys. Being there with the commitments, the guys still looking at NC State and the people already there was real good for me. It got me real excited about playing at State."

What was the highlight of the trip for Spencer?

"Just getting the chance to bond with the guys I'm going to be playing with. Going to college is a big change. You're meeting new people from all over. This was a good time for me. I'm going to be a lot more comfortable going up there next fall after this."

Spencer may be called upon to play early, given the departure of Brian Clark, Tramain Hall and Sterling Hicks at wide receiver.

"That's something that they mentioned," said Spencer. "I knew playing time would be available, but I'm going to have to work for it. I have a good relationship with Coach Dixon, the wide receivers coach. We talked last Wednesday I think. I'm looking forward to playing for him next year."

While the 6-2, 175-pound in-state receiver considers himself a ‘solid' verbal for the Pack, he's still being actively recruited by Virginia.

"I'm definitely going to NC State next year. Virginia's still recruiting me, but I know where I want to be."

In his senior season Spencer caught 42 passes for 748 yards and 16 touchdowns. He was named County Player of the Year and was an all-conference selection.
