Spence to Visit UNC This Fall

With a December graduation planned, Sean Spence figures to take all five of his official visits during the fall.

Spence, a 6-foot-1 195-pound linebacker from Miami (Fla.) Northwestern, hasn't begun to schedule any official visits, yet, but says North Carolina "definitely" will be one of his stops.

"I think is a nice school," said Spence. "I've never been to North Carolina. I just want to see what it's all about, meet the coaches and players."

Outside of UNC, Spence isn't sure what schools will receive an official visit. However, by the end of the summer, he plans on naming the remainder of his final five schools and also have all of his official visits scheduled.

During the spring, Spence attended a closed scrimmage at Miami and also went to Florida's junior day.

Spence, who doesn't have a leader, said he will make a verbal commitment in December.

"I'm looking for a school with a high graduation rate, a school with good tradition, a place where I can call my home away from home," said Spence.

While his knowledge of UNC is limited, growing up in Miami has familiarized Spence with the Tar Heels' current head coach.

"I don't know too much about the Tar Heels, but I do know about Butch Davis and his coaching legacy and the coaching style he brings to the table," said Spence.

UNC began to recruit Spence during the Evaluation Period.

"In the spring, I was talking to Coach [Chuck] Pagano," said Spence. "He told me they have an offer for me [and] they really liked the way I play. A couple weeks later an offer came in the mail."

Spence has collected over a dozen scholarship offers including Alabama, Arizona State, Miami, Mississippi, Rutgers, South Carolina, and South Florida.

Spence is a two-time All-Dade County and All-State selection. Last season, he collected 133 tackles including ten for a loss, and intercepted two passes returning one for a touchdown.
