COS corner looking for an opportunity

Heading into the season, it appeared that College of the Sequoias CB Kenneth Spigner (5-11, 185) was all set to be one of the top JUCO corners in the country. However, after suffering a dislocated finger in the first game of the season, the talented cover-man has had to turn his attention to other things including which schools will get an official visit from him...

"I broke the ring finger on my left hand against City (College of San Francisco) so I've just been working out and keeping in shape while I recover from that," Spigner told recently. "I might apply for a medical redshirt if I have to sit out much longer, so that is something I'm thinking about, but we're not ready to make that decision just yet."

On the recruiting front, Spigner still has the three offers he entered the season with -- Tennessee, Central Florida and Florida International -- and he's seen interest pick up from the likes of Oregon, Oregon State and his hometown school, Miami.

"Miami likes me a lot and said they are thinking about offering me and Oregon and Oregon State have both talked about offers, but none of them have offered me yet," Spigner said. "I'll probably set up visits with the three schools that have offered and Miami and then see where things stand.

"Tennessee is real intriguing to me because they play in the best conference in the country and they play big time football there," Spigner said. "The other two will get visits too and I want to see what they have to offer."

As a freshman, Spigner used his 4.31 speed and athleticism to shut down his side of the field on a regular basis and finished the season with 34 tackles and two interceptions.

"They stopped throwing my way pretty early in the season," Spigner lamented. "I didn't get a lot of chances to make plays, so when I got the chance I had to take advantage.

"This summer, I really worked on my 'off' coverage so that I could get that down a little better. I'd say it was my weakness, but I could still do it alright. I just wanted to be more sound, so that's what I focused on."

Spigner plans to sign with a school in December and he'll have three years to play two wherever he ends up.
