Long Beach (Calif.) Poly center Douglas Spacht (6-4.5, 285) has been one of the standouts for the Jackrabbits in the early part of the 2007 season.

Spacht served notice from the first game they played this year, dominating Glenville (Ohio) defensive lineman in the Kirk Herbstreit Challenge, where he caught the eye of several of’s regional analysts.

After playing left tackle a year ago, Spacht is back inside at center, and said he’s much more comfortable playing there.

“I’ve been playing center since I was a kid,” said Spacht. “I played left tackle when I was a junior, but I’m back playing center for my team. I like it a lot more. I could play anywhere on the line really, but I would rather play center.”

Several schools like Spacht as a center too, with four schools having offered him.

UNLV, San Diego State, Northern Colorado and Minnesota-Moorhead have all offered me,” said Spacht. “And I’m hearing a lot from Nebraska too. I’d like to hear some more from the Pac-10 schools, like Oregon, Washington State, Cal, UCLA and of course USC. I grew up watching USC and that would be my dream school.”

In the meantime, Spacht said rumors of him having committed to San Diego State, even as a soft verbal, were true, but he’s clarified them.

“I was a soft verbal to San Diego State, but I don’t think I really knew what that meant. So now I’m still considering San Diego State, but I’m not committed to anyone. I’m keeping all of my options open,” said Spacht.

A good student, Spacht has a 3.0 GPA and scored an 1800 on the SAT.

This weekend, Poly, who is 4-1, has a bye, before playing Long Beach Millikan.
