3-Star Lineman Woo Spencer Chooses Louisville Over Kentucky

Kentucky exits National Signing Day at .500.

3-star lineman William “Woo” Spencer, the No. 444 player in the 23rd grade – according to the On3 consensus – has announced his commitment to Louisville, choosing the rival Cardinals over the Wildcats.

“It was a really tough decision,” Spencer said in his announcement.

Spencer has been a target for the Wildcats for some time since senior recruiter Vince Marrow was the first to make an offer in March 2021. Six other Power Five programs have since offered the 6-foot-5, 315-pounder, who is considered the No. 6 player in the state of Indiana, comes out of New Albany Senior High.

He visited Lexington two weeks ago, followed by a visit to the U of L last weekend. It was a controversial bluegrass recruiting battle that was ultimately won by the Cards’ new head coach Jeff Brohm. Spencer’s recruitment is expected to be the first of many that will be up in the air between Brohm and Britain manager Mark Stoops.

247Sports National Recruiting Analyst Allen Trieu predicts the D-Lineman as a Power Five starter:

Two-way player in high school who could play either offensive line or defensive line after college. Larger bodied but well proportioned and college ready looking. Shows some twitching and has good standing quickness. Strong, hits with violence on offense and can drive defenders backwards and into the ground. Power makes him hard to stop as a bull rusher on defense. Has the same quickness of snapping there. Can be a big strong zero tech but is a good enough athlete to move anywhere on the line of scrimmage and play as a three or five tech in certain situations. Needs to improve defensive technique and needs to adapt to a much higher level of competition in college regardless of position, but has the body type, strength and gameplay to be a very good collegiate player and potential NFL draft pick in position.

The Wildcats added two D linemen in 3-star Tavion Gadson and Tommy Ziesmer during the early signing period. Earlier Wednesday, 4-star DL Kendrick Gilbert turned his Purdue signing over to Britain, a big win for the Wildcats. Unfortunately, that’s all they get on NSD.
