Sean Spence from Miami Northwestern has been the number one defensive prospect on the USFNation Hot 20 since the spring evaluation period. Spence, 6-foot-1 and 200 pounds brings both size and speed to the playing field. As a junior Spence was a playmaker, recording 160 tackles, 3 sacks, 2 INT, 1 fumble recovery and a defensive touchdown.
Now the 4-star LB is entering the final stretch of recruiting. He committed to the University of Miami during the summer, but has been planning visits for the fall.
"I am going to Tennessee this Friday." Says Spence. "We play on a Thursday this week, so I'll be leaving the next day."
The other visit he's working on is a trip to Tampa.
"I wanted to visit this weekend, but they aren't playing at home." Adding, "I'm looking forward to seeing what South Florida is all about. Coach Scott and I have been working on something. It's not set yet, but it will be soon. I'll probably be there for the Louisville game in November."
Getting Spence in on a visit is an accomplishment in itself for the Bulls staff. Back in August Sean told USFNation that he wasn't sure if he would be taking any visits at all after committing to Miami.
"I like what South Florida brings on the field. They are a hard fighting team that has come a long way."
Spence says that the main teams he's considering are Miami, Tennessee and South Florida.
"I get a weekly phone call from UM and USF."
What is the main reason the Bulls have jumped back in the picture? Simple. Winning.
"USF is having a great season. That game against West Virginia showed a lot. They shut down Steve Slaton and totally took Pat White out of the game. Everyone doubted them and they got a big win."
Spence is a one-of-a-kind player that fits perfectly into the Bulls defensive scheme. He has lateral speed and doesn't just tackle he HITS with bad intentions! Before you get too excited remember, Spence is still a Miami commit and he's also looking hard at Tennessee. Personally, I don't see him leaving the state. Mark the weekend of November 17th on the calendar that is USF's final chance to make a lasting impression on one of the top defensive players in the state.
