After working out at both outside linebacker and tight end at the Buffaloes' satellite camp at the University of Redlands this past Saturday, Spencer Lytle gained the ability to join his brother Tyler Lytle in Boulder as a Buff.
"They said they like me a lot in both positions and want to see how I continue to develop to see which one would be the best fit for me,"said Lytle, who just finished up his sophomore year at Servite High School.
"I love Colorado," he added. "I have visited a couple times when my brother went out there. It is an extremely nice campus. I also love the coaching staff and my brother always comes back with great things to say about it."
Spencer said his brother has already started to try to recruit him to Boulder, but not in an aggressive manner.
""I want to make sure I carve my own path and not have anything handed to me. My brother is a great mentor and worked for all he got. I want to do the same," the younger Lytle said. "He also emphasizes to choose what feels like home. He's still heavily biased toward CU, but he wants what's best for me."
Lytle has received seven other offers so far, from Colorado State, Hawaii, Indiana, Pittsburgh, San Jose State, Western Michigan and Fordham. Right now he is looking to wait until "prior or during" his senior season to make a commitment.
"I am really open to every school as of now," he said. "My recruiting is wide open and I am looking forward to next season."
Lytle was named one of the top 15 underclassman performers at the Los Angeles Opening Regional camp this spring.
"Colleges say I am a very intelligent player that knows the game," he said. "They see me as very athletic and a very intense player."
