Out in the Mountain West, Steve Fisher has built San Diego State into a regional power. A big part of he and the Aztecs success has been landing versatile and lengthy athletes.
Sunday afternoon, the Aztecs scored another when shot blocking big man Skylar Spencer of Los Angeles (Calif.) Price made the call.
Capable of playing much bigger than his 6-foot-8 size, Spencer is a long and bouncy big man who is among the top shot rejectors and rebounders in the country.
After a weekend visit to SDSU, Spencer decided that his planned trip to Washington would no longer be necessary.
"SDSU had everything I wanted," Spencer told Edward Lewis of AztecSportsReport.com. "I felt my mind was officially made up."
While he's been more noted for his defense and rebounding, Spencer is coming along offensively. Though not yet a skilled low-post scorer, he's become effective as a transition finisher, getting tips and has developed a nice little jump hook.
"I see myself bringing energy to the team," Spencer told Rivals.com. "I will be presenting a dominant post presence."
A three-star prospect who ranks No. 124 in the 2012 Rivals150, he joins fellow three-star Californian Matt Shrigley as high schoolers who have committed to SDSU. The Aztecs also have transfers Dwayne Polee and JJ O'Brien sitting out this season.
