Spencer Enjoys Camp Experience

Riley Spencer was not on a whole lot of recruiting lists early on in the recruiting process, but some things can change quickly in the recruiting game. With offers on the table from schools like TCU and Miami (FL) he went in to OU camp to try and earn a Sooner scholarship offer.

Spencer Riley, a 6-foot-6, 270-pound offensive tackle from Hesston High in Kan., admitted that he had an enjoyable time at Oklahoma's summer camp.

"The camp went pretty good," Spencer said. "It provided a nice time to meet the coaches and kind of get a feel for the program."

One of the major opportunities that camp provides is the chance for the coaches and player to work one-on-one. Spencer had the chance to work with Coach (James) Patton and he thought that he was a great coach to work with.

"He is a great guy and a great coach," Spencer admitted. "He was very good with his instruction and everything."

The mammoth offensive lineman liked what he saw out of the Sooner program.

"The school was great. I loved the campus. I really enjoyed all of the guys that were there."

Spencer already holds offers from Miami (FL) and TCU, but he would be interested in OU if they were to offer.

"I do have an interest in them," he explained. "Obviously they are a great school and a great program. I guess it is one of those things where we will just have to see where it goes from here."

"They seemed like they would not be extending an offer yet, but it seemed like it could be a possibility."

"Miami and TCU are both great programs. I really like them and I have had the chance to get to talk to them and enjoy getting to communicate with them. They are pretty high up there. I am just trying to be able to get an idea for how all of the programs are and make a decision from there later on."
