Trip Report - Octavius Spencer

Monrovia (Ca.) ATH Octavius Spencer talks about his trip to UW and where things stand on the recruiting front...

"It went good," Spencer told shortly after returning home. "It went really good. I really enjoyed myself."

Dante Pettis was Spencer's host and the two already had a good relationship, so they spent time talking about what it was like to be a football player at Washington.

"He and I have know each other for a while so it was cool hanging out with him," Spencer noted. "He broke things down for me. He said the education is top notch and that you can't go wrong going to U-Dub."

For Spencer, he's already seen plenty of great facilities and huge stadiums, so what stood out for him was on the academic side.

"Just meeting with the professors and seeing how they help support you academically," Spencer said. "I mean, their facilities were top-notch, but I've seen all that type of stuff before, so it was really about seeing the other aspects of the program."

Spencer said Washington likes him on the offensive side of the ball, which he doesn't mind at all he he plans to host Washington receivers coach Brent Pease on Tuesday night.

This coming weekend, Spencer will be headed to Purdue and then plans to visit California the third weekend of January.

"I want to take all five of my visits," Spencer said. "I've already seen Oregon and Washington and I'm seeing Purdue this weekend and Cal the third weekend of January.

"I'm not sure about the fifth visit, but I'll be thinking of that over the (holiday break)."
