DeKalb 2019 OG Spencer Harris’ recruiting is just starting to pick up. We talked FBS/FCS schools showing interest, his offseason regimen and also got DeKalb head coach Matt Weckler’s thoughts on Harris.
Commitment status: Undecided
Wt: 290 lbs
LPI: What are you going to do to take your game to the next level this offseason? Are you playing any other sports?
SH: I am working out 2x a day for 5 days a week with the morning session being strength and conditioning and the afternoon is technique and footwork. On the weekends I watch film and I look for what I can improve on from last year. I am also going to college camps to see what I can do to get better. Right now I am not playing other sports but, I am looking into doing wrestling and track and field.
LPI: You currently don’t have any offers, but I believe you have what it takes to play at the next level. What skill set can you bring to the table for a college football program?
SH: I can bring the skill set of a great attitude. I come into every situation with an open mind. I am always ready to learn something new to improve my game and take it to the next level. I also bring the skill set of hard work and determination.
LPI: Which schools have shown serious interest in you?
SH: Illinois State has shown the most interest in me so far. Whether it’s through the mail or social media. NIU and SIU have shown some interest also.
LPI: Where have you visited most recently and do you have any planned visits or camps/showcases set?
SH: Most recently I have visited ISU for their Big Man Camp. As of right now I don’t have any other planned visits for the summer.
LPI: On or off the field, how do you demonstrate leadership or go the extra mile for your teammates?
SH: On and off the field I lead by example, whether it’s taking an extra rep or helping a younger player. I go the extra mile by staying after workouts or practices and do some extra reps and talk with coaches to see what I can work on to get better.
LPI: Who are some of your teammates or training partners that you believe can play at the next level, but have gone overlooked by college coaches?
Jordan Gandy – Is the first one that come to mind. He is one of the hardest working people I have ever seen. He is always hungry to learn more about the game and how he can improve. He also has some of the best raw talent I have ever seen. Jordan is great corner and deserves some more looks for college coaches.
