You can’t teach size and Spencer has plenty of size for the staff to work with. While he tends to play like a guy who is just flat-out bigger than his opponents, Spencer shows a great motor and a willingness to chase plays. That will bode well for him in college as he won’t have a problem working to make plays in the middle of Louisville’s defense.
Spencer is a legit 6-5/315 and he should have no problem seeing the field as a freshman if he comes to campus in good shape. UofL isn’t thin at defensive tackle but they do have a need for depth with the move to a scheme that plays a nose tackle and a defensive tackle together. Spencer will need to work on eating up blocks but his ability to get penetration from the interior will help him get snaps.
