Highly prized LB Spencer Lytle of Bellflower, CA has set August 4th for his commitment announcement. He has visited Clemson twice, most recently June 11th. He’s also taken an official visit to Wisconsin. Those are the two he said that are sticking out the most to him right now though he’s not talking about a short list. But he is talking about how hard Clemson is recruiting him.
“I hear from Coach Venables and Coach Swinney daily,” Lytle said. “I have a great feel for Clemson and what the program is about. They are losing seven linebackers over the next two years and I would be the only linebacker coming in as an early enrollee in the 2019 class.”
To Lytle, that means the chance for early playing time. And that’s an important factor.
“After talking to Coach Venables, I feel great about my chances to play early at Clemson,” Lytle said. “I really feel good about playing early at both Clemson and Wisconsin. I had a pretty successful junior year at linebacker and that was my first year playing the position. I played all offense my sophomore year. My freshman year I played about every skill position on the field and never came off the field.”
Last season Lytle had 77 tackles and 7 sacks.
Some of the other schools he has visited are Texas, Texas A&M, Notre Dame, Cal, TCU, UCLA, Arizona State and Colorado.
