When all is said and done, Travis Spreen of Jesuit HS, could end up one of the most recruited O Lineman to come out of Oregon in some time. The 6-4 285 pound Sophomore is legit. He earned 1st team all league and all state honors this past season, helping the Crusaders to a (14-0) record and the state title.
Spreen will be a 4 year varsity kid, and courted heavily by elite academic universities across the country. His 4.2 weighted GPA at the private school speaks to his academic prowess. Travis is incredibly disciplined and separates himself with his combination of talents. Fundamentally there are few that are better as he is still relatively young.
Speaking on next year he says, “There are many goals that I would like to meet next season, specifically winning another state title.” Jaxson Kirkland ( 6-7 310 T 17′) is one of the top lineman in America, and the Daul brothers (Jarred/Joel) are two of the state’s best. Together these four will give big time D1’s Trey Lowe and Demetrius Douglas room to run and do their thing out of the backfield. The loss of 36 seniors will not be easy to make up for, but they will be in the mix for another championship.
As much as anybody Spreen gets it done on and off the field. Adding, “Local community involvement is very important to me, the past two summers I have served as a camp counselor for the Sherwood Historical Society’s History camp.” Travis is also active at school as a member of an anti bullying group, the Jesuit Commitment Club, and at Friday Liturgies.
In summary Spreen is about as well rounded as they come. That said as his ability on the field is real. He projects as an early offer D1 kid and someone that could potentially blow up this off season. Look for Stanford and other similar schools to try and get in early on what could potentially be one Oregon’s best centers ever.
Travis will be one of the featured Sophomores at the Collegiate Showcase June 3rd in Portland, along with nationally ranked Lake Oswego Tackle Dawson Jaramillo (6-5 290 18′). We will bring you updates as the off season progresses.
