CNS offensive lineman commits to playing football at Central Connecticut State
1/29/2018 6:28 AM

Cicero-North Syracuse's all-state tackle Reis Spicer has committed to playing college football at Central Connecticut State.  The Division I program is located in New Britain, Conn., and is a member of the Northeast Conference, which also includes such schools as Wagner and Fairleigh Dickinson.  Spicer, a 6-foot-6, 295-pound lineman, said he just knew on his first visit that CCS was the right fit for him.  "It just felt like home," he said this morning from New Britain, where he is taking an official visit this weekend. "As soon as I stepped on campus I could see myself there."    Spicer was a key component of a Northstars offensive line that cleared the way for backs to gain 4,190 yards last season. C-NS went 11-1, won the program's first sectional football championship and made it to the Class AA state semifinals.  Following the season, Spicer was named to the All-Central New York large schools first team and was a third-team, all-state selection.  The Blue Devils went 8-4 in 2017, earning a NEC league championship.  Spicer, who is only 17, said he'll get an opportunity to play right away, but he said it is more likely that he'll redshirt. He plans to major in communications with a minor in business.  He joins C-NS teammates Tyler Days (Boston College) and Lorenzo Thompson (Rhode Island) on a list of announced D-I commitments for the Northstars.
