It looks like a hobo spider to me.... But not knowing the place the spider was located makes it only a possibility. You can check out www.hobospider.org
If it is a hobo spider don't get too close as their bite is a very nasty sometimes fatal one. I was bitten by one and it kept me ill in bed for almost two weeks.. in addition to a bite site on my hip bone area that was very tender to the touch and the ulcerated area was larger than a silver dollar and took two months to heal but left a thick scar.

Looks like some sort of wolf spider.
Here is a better pic of one for comparison.
