ISU one of eight offers for Spence

Fort Walton Beach (Fla.) defensive tackle Akeem Spence has piled up eight offers this spring. The 6-foot-1, 280-pound Spence is learning quickly that an agile defensive tackle is a precious commodity on the recruiting market and his offer list could easily move into double digits before all is said and done.

According to Spence, he has scholarship offers from Iowa State, East Carolina, Illinois, South Florida, NC State, Troy, FIU and FAU. In addition, Spence said he had conversations with coaches from Florida, LSU and Florida State during the contact period in May. He's in no hurry to make a decision and plans on taking official visits before committing to any school.

"I will go on visits and then decide," Spence said. "I've got a lot of schools to think about. Most are seeing my size and my ability to run and deciding to offer me. I do not have favorites right now, I'm considering everyone."

Spence had 67 tackles as a junior, including 16 tackles for loss with two sacks.
