Spencer Webb came up for the weekend without an offer from Gary Andersen’s program but that would change soon after the coaches got to see him in person. He was on campus as part of the junior day festivities that attracted over 30 athletes from the class of 2018 to attend.
“I think they put my film together with my measurables and saw that I’m already 6-foot-5.75 tall and weigh 234 pounds, and they really liked that. Also, I will be turning 17 in a month, that shows that I still have some growing to do. When they put it all together, they decided to offer me,” Webb told BeaverBlitz. “It really meant the world to my family and I as I’ve dreamed and prepared for this level since my childhood and it was unreal to be told you have made it in OSU’s eyes.”
While the highlight of his visit was undoubtedly picking up his first offer from a Power-5 conference program, he enjoyed many other things while on campus. The staff was welcoming, the location and layout of the stadium and the rest of campus made for a very enjoyable experience.
Webb might not be a familiar name to most Beaver fans currently, however they should recognize a few things about where he’s from. Spencer attends Christian Brothers High School in Sacramento, California. Last fall, he helped lead the Falcons to an 11-3 record and a berth in the CIF San Juaquin Section D3 Final. He caught 41 balls for 660 yards and 5 touchdowns.
He also plays for TMP Elite on the Adidas 7on7 circuit. Playing alongside fellow TMP teammates Trajon Cotton, Isaiah Hodgins and 2018 commit DeShon Wilson is something that could lure Webb to Corvallis as well.
“I like the idea of getting to playing with people that I know, it’s not starting from scratch with relationships. I’m going to go through the process though. I have a few more stops to make but not many. OSU was special.”
Webb currently has offers from San Jose State, Princeton, Howard, Yale, San Diego State, Dartmouth, Colorado State, Fresno State, Hawaii, Wyoming, and Sacramento State in addition to the Beavers. We’ll continue to monitor Spencer Webb’s recruitment as the spring proceeds.
