Arlington (Texas) Lamar defensive end Chandler Spence is showing his versatility this spring with a move to another position and he's also had quite the successful early recruiting process.
The 6-foot-4, 232-pounder was being primarily recruited as a defensive end, but things could be changing as Spence says he's now putting in work at the tight end position.
"Spring has just gone really, really well," Spence said. "I moved to tight end and I'm primarily at that position and still a little bit of defensive end. At first, colleges were talking mainly defensive end, but now it's 50-50. Either way it would work."
Spence has also added his first three scholarship offers from Air Force, Buffalo, and Louisiana Tech.
"All of them were over the phone and then Louisiana Tech and Buffalo followed that up with the (official) letters," Spence said. "Air Force is on the way. They all actually surprised me. Buffalo did because they're so far away. I just wasn't expecting offers this soon."
Spence says as for favorites, two schools continue to sit at the top.
"Right now, at the top of the list, would still be Vanderbilt and Kansas because I've kept in close contact with them," Spence said. "Also, Colorado and Virginia are up there and I'm going up to their camps. I've stayed in touch with them."
As for a timeframe on a commitment, Spence says that he is waiting for more scholarship offers to come and he would like to take some more visits this fall.
"I definitely want to take all of my official visits, go to some camps, talk about it with my family and see what they think," Spence said. "I'm thinking probably the middle to end of the football season."
