Region Sets Georgia Visit
Spencer Region, the 6-foot-6, 345-pound three-star offensive lineman from Cullman Senior High School in Cullman, Ala., has already scheduled an official visit to Georgia on Dec. 11. Region, ranked as the No. 24 offensive guard in the country by Scout.com, now denies a leader but says he's also strongly considering Alabama and Wisconsin, amongst others. All three have offered as well as Texas, LSU, Oregon, Tennessee, Penn State, Virginia, Louisville, Ole Miss, Troy, Wake Forest, Southern Miss and others (27 total). "I'm still pretty open," Region admitted. "I'm trying to find the best place for me and it's not easy." Although he doesn't have any favorites now, he knows when he wants to make his decision. "I'll announce at the Under Armour game," he said. "A lot of good players do it there and by then I should definitely know what I want to do." Earlier this summer Region camped at Alabama. "They have a great offense and I like how they run the ball," he said about the Tide. "I also feel like I have a pretty good relationship with (offensive line) coach Joe Pendry. We talk every week and we're pretty close." Region also believes the Tide are an early favorite to repeat as national champions. "I love how they are good every season," he said. "They could definitely repeat. I hope they do." While Alabama is only about an hour away from Region's house, he says that Wisconsin is the school that has been showing a lot of interest recently. "They've come on very strong," he said. "I don't know a lot about them, but I like that they run the pro-style. "They always have huge offensive linemen," he said. "And coach Bob Bostad is known as a great o-line coach." Another offensive line coach that stands out to Region is Georgia's Stacy Searels. "I like his coaching style and I think he could help get me to the next level," he said. "Coach Searels is a straight-shooter and he's produced some great lineman like (Georgia's junior offensive center) Ben Jones." Cullman Senior High School opens their 2010 season on Friday, Aug. 27, against Sparkman High School. Region reports a 3.0 core GPA and plans on taking the ACT for the first time on Sept. 11.
