Spencer lands Oregon offer

Monrovia (Calif.) athlete Octavius Spencer landed his first Pac-12 offers on Sunday from UCLA and Oregon. What's next for the rising prospect?

As first reported by Scout.com National Recruiting Analyst Greg Biggins, Oregon offered Monrovia athlete Octavius Spencer.

The three-star prospect also picked up an offer from UCLA as a wide receiver and special teams weapon on Sunday as his recruitment begins to pick up late in the process.

“I’m really pumped about it,” Spencer said of the offers.

Ducks secondary coach John Neal offered the 6-foot-1, 170-pound Spencer as a cornerback and spoke with him about why the offer surfaced.

“He basically talked to me about how they have four DB’s leaving,” he said. “He needs more DB’s. They look forward to me coming up there. I’m trying to set up a visit right now.”

As of right now, Spencer has not firmed up a date with Oregon or UCLA for an official visit, but he said that he told Neal that “anytime is good for me”. The visits likely won’t happen until after the end of the season.

Spencer is largely unfamiliar with the Oregon program but he has a list of things he wants to check off if he visits.

“First, if they have my major and stuff like that,” he said. “And how am I going to fit into the program and just how the atmosphere is up there and see if I like it or not.”

Spencer plans on majoring in kinesiology or public relations. As of right now, he said Oregon and UCLA are even along with his other offer from Sacramento State.
