5-star DE Spence Keeps Options Open

TSR caught up with 2012, 5-star recruit Noah Spence's coach to talk recruiting.

Noah Spence, a 5-star recruit for the 2012 class, has offers rolling in from Stanford, Virginia Tech, Boston College, Florida, Minnesota, Illinois, Connecticut and Cincinnati. He is also receiving interest from Maryland.

From Bishop McDevitt High School in Pennsylvania, Spence is being heavily recruited for his flexibility in a defense and his ability to get to the quarterback.

“He can play defensive end or outside linebacker in a 3-4,” said his coach Jeff Weachter. “He's right around 6'4'', close to 240 pounds and runs a 4.5 40.”

The Terps defense featuring a 4-3 would probably land Spence at defensive end if when the time comes he chooses Maryland over the field.

“Right now he's got so many offers,” said Weachter. “He's just sitting back and taking it all in and listening to what everybody has to say.”

Spence is a dedicated worker and was a captain of his team a junior. He is also on the honor roll.

“He works out here at our strength program and works out with a speed trainer twice a week,” said Weachter. “He's a quiet leader. He leads by example more. He's a really hard worker.”

Coach Weachter thinks Spence will wait until evaluations in May to start looking at schools, and he may make some visits over the summer.

With so many school's showing interest, Spence would be a highlight of recruiting for the new coaching staff at Maryland.
