Three-year starter at center who played two games at right guard as a sophomore. Senior captain who was named Honorable Mention All-Big Ten. Earned Academic All-Big Ten all four seasons with the Illini.
Tough, durable college lineman with limited potential. Explosive, plays with a good degree of quickness and keeps his head on a swivel. Intelligent, works well with line mates and blocks with proper fundamentals. Effectively quarterbacks the offensive line.
Displays average strength in his base and does not get much movement run blocking. Ineffective blocking in motion.
Spencer got the most from his ability but lacks the athleticism to play on Sunday. His approach to the game and football intelligence warrants a spot on the practice squad.
