What happened to Spencer Region?

He sorta decommitted. Not clear if he's still considering Auburn or if "opening" his recruitment was the first of many predetermined steps to Alabama (or maybe even Texas). His whole recruitment has been odd. The common wisdom from those who watch such things closely is that he is a good player who is getting "great" player kind of attention due to his surprise commitment to Auburn and now his de-commitment. The same common wisdom says he is replaceable. As to whether Auburn is still in it for his services, I would guess whether or not he attends BCW2 will tell the tale.
