A Set Plan for Region

With dwindling scholarship numbers and the Badgers getting verbal commitments from Ray Ball and Tyler Marz, it would appear UW is full at the offensive line position. But with Spencer Region, one of the top uncommitted players in the 2011 class, still with UW interest, the Badgers will gladly wait.

MADISON-The available scholarships for the Badgers in the Class of 2011 are now few and far between. The Badgers currently have 18 commitments and are only looking to take a few more players. One player the Badgers are still after is Cullman High School offensive lineman Spencer Region.

The three-star offensive guard prospect has had an up and down recruitment, but has started to hone in on his final destination.

Region recently narrowed down his list to five schools - Georgia, Wisconsin, Alabama, LSU and Louisville.

The 6-foot 6, 345-pound senior recently spoke with Badgernation regarding the Badgers and his recruitment.

"I really like Wisconsin a lot. I have always had a little bit of interest in them, because when I was a little kid they had guys like Joe Thomas there. The average size of their offensive line is so big and I would fit right in. They are a really big team. Also, I saw when Game Day was there (Ohio State win) and the atmosphere looked awesome."

While Region recently cut down his list, he is planning to take a visit to Madison in the near future.

"We still haven't came down to an exact date. It really is dependent on when I get done with the playoffs and our team just started that Friday."

Badger offensive line coach Bob Bostad is recruiting Region.

"I like him. He is a straight shooter. Me and him have a pretty good relationship. I like him as an o-line coach and we get along pretty well. I have not met him in person, but we talk on the phone a bunch. I really like him. He wants me to play guard, because I move the line of scrimmage so far back."

Region has led Cullman to a 7-3 record and is looking forward to the playoffs.

While most of Region's list is in the SEC or southern portion of the country, Wisconsin is in the north and the furthest away.

"It's really not a big deal to me. I am just going to go where I think is best for me and my family."

Early next year, Region will be participating in the Under Armour All-American Game.

"I'm looking forward to competing against the best in the country and going away on vacation with my family. I'm looking forward to having a good time and enjoying the last part of my senior season."

Region recently decided it wasn't a sure thing hat he will be making his decision at the all-star game.

"I'm not for sure if I am going to do it during the All-American Game or not. I want to make sure I get all my visits in before I make my decision. If I can't make it at the game, it is going to be fine. It is where I am going to be for the next 4 years so I want to make the best decision I can. If I can get all my visits done, then I will make it at the game."
