Rancho Cucamonga (Calif.) defensive lineman Averell Spicer took his second official visit of the year this past weekend to Oklahoma. Spicer had previously officially visited Nebraska who ironically was playing the Sooners on Saturday.
“I was really impressed with everything there,” Spicer said. “Alonzo Dotson was my host and we got along really well. I got along well with all the players and coaches actually. It was a nice place, more city-like than I thought it would be.
“It’s not quite like Los Angeles in terms of size and all but there was a lot to do there. All the players went out to some of the hot spots there and we ate at some great places as well. It was actually pretty similar to my visit to Nebraska but I have a feeling all the trips are going to be pretty similar when all is said and done.
"The game was pretty intense and I was very impressed with Oklahoma and their defense. They really get after it, they're impressive to watch in person. I watched their defensive line a lot and they are all big, strong and very quick. I think I would fit in pretty well there. They attack all the time and that's the kind of defense I enjoy playing in."
Spicer, 6-2, 260 pounds will play a 1st round playoff game this Friday and then head to Tallahassee for his third official visit.
“I’m going to Florida State, that should be a good time as well,” Spicer said. “I’m from there so it will be like coming home for me. I’m also visiting USC (Jan. 7) and Oregon State although I don’t have a date for that visit yet. I’m planning to announce my decision at the US Army All-American game.”
