All-American Spencer Region was a late addition to the Tiger’s 2011 class and he could prove to be a critical addition. In just a few days Spencer will move in at Clemson.
“I will be leaving Alabama Saturday morning. My whole family is coming up with me. We are going to enjoy a night in town Saturday night before we say our goodbyes on Sunday. I am looking forward to it. It is a new experience,” said Region.
What type of workouts has Spencer been doing to prepare to compete at Clemson?
“I have been doing a lot of speed and quickness work. That is my thing. Coach Batson sent us a workout plan and I have been doing that as well as the speed and quickness training,” replied Region.
The Clemson staff has made it clear that Spencer will have the opportunity to see the field in 2011.
“They say I have a chance to play early. They just want me to be in shape when I get there. They want me to be ready to play. Coach Morris says he will throw me to the fire quick. I hope I answer the bell and I think I will. We will see where things go. I will work hard and keep doing what I have been doing and if I do that it will all play out,” said Region.
Make no mistake, the All-American plans to fight hard to see the field his fall.
“I am on a mission. I am not coming to try to sit for a year. I will do that if the coaches feel it is best for me,” said Region.
Is the prize recruit nervous about leaving home or excited to get to Tigertown?
“I am excited about leaving. I understand it is what I have to do. It is a new chapter in life. I am going to miss my family dearly, but they will be up as much as they can. It is a new chapter and something everyone has to go through to be successful,” replied Region.
What are Spencer’s goals for his first year at Clemson?
“I just want to start things off the way they need to start. As a class we want to bring home four ACC titles. We plan to contend for a national championship. I want to work hard and keep my grades up. I have always been a good student. I want to keep putting my best foot forward,” replied Region.
