Dylan Spangler recently visited Louisville for the Cards junior day. The 6-2, 225-pound Waynesboro (PA) standout linebacker spoke with InsideTheVille.com about his trip to Louisville.

"I liked it down at Louisville – the facilities they have a really nice," Spangler said. "After we checked in they served us breakfast then we got to listen to the athletic director speak. Then we talked to the strength and conditioning coach and the recruiting coordinator and then we talked to the head coach. We also got to watch them scrimmage."

After watching the team scrimmage, prospects were broken up into position groups and Spangler had an opportunity to interact more closely with linebackers coach Bill Miller.

"I got to speak with Bill Miller. He was a real nice guy," Spangler said. "He said they really need linebacker and that it didn't matter how big you were as long as you could run."

As a junior, Spangler made 135 tackles (21 TFL's), 13.5 per game. He also made seven sacks and three INT's. Spangler has been busy this spring and has attended junior days at Pittsburgh, Akron and Illinois. Spangler says he plans to attend camp at Syracuse this summer.

"I get one or two letters a week from Louisville," said Spangler. "They have my film but I haven't heard anything from them about my film other than they received it. I've been getting stuff from Illinois, Syracuse, Iowa, Purdue, Princeton, Harvard – a lot of the east coast and Ivy League schools have been showing interest."
