LSU offensive line coach Greg Studrawa dropped into the school of Cullman, Ala. native Spencer…
Region Sets Baton Rouge Trip
Spencer Region, the 6-foot-6, 345-pound three-star offensive lineman from Cullman Senior High School in Cullman, Ala., has narrowed his choices down to three schools – Auburn, LSU and Wisconsin. He claims scholarships from all, but sources dispute the Auburn offer. Region, ranked as the No. 20 offensive guard in the country by Scout.com, will be visiting LSU officially on Jan. 23 and that's the only trip he has scheduled thus far. "I really like Baton Rouge and I'm excited to go back there," Region said. "I'm eager to see what the place is like on a weekend when there is no football." Region was supposed to visit Georgia officially on Dec. 10, but cancelled the trip. "I had to cancel that trip because some family things came up," he said. The Bulldogs are no longer on his list. He says he's also close to finalizing an official visit with Wisconsin. "I'm in the process of setting that up now," he said. "I like all the great linemen they've produced and how great their coaches are." Region is being recruited by Badgers' offensive line coach Bob Bostad. "He's very down-to-earth and a straight shooter," he said. "They're all about family over there." He says he also hopes to visit Auburn before making a decision. "That team has shown a lot this season," he said. "They really stuck together through a lot." And Region isn't even referring to all those come-from-behind victories. "I'm talking about all that stuff with Cam Newton," he said. "They came together and didn't let it get them down." Region admits he followed the Cam Newton situation closely. "I was eager to see what would happen," he said. "Obviously, if he had done something, that'd be really bad for the program, but I didn't want to make too much of it until I knew something." He says he likely won't make a decision until signing day. "I want to fit in with the style of defense they run and make sure I feel comfortable around the coaches," he said. "I'll also be looking at how they develop players and if they're known for putting guys in the NFL or not. "All three fit what I want," he said of his finalists. "They all have what I'm looking for…they play a great style, they produce NFL players and I believe they're all national championship contenders." But what if Region had to pick one tonight? "Well, it's really pretty even," he said. "But if I had to pick one right now I guess I'd go with Wisconsin." Region reports a 3.0 core GPA and a 23 ACT.
