D Tackle, teammate set to see I-State

Fort Walton Beach (Fla.) defensive tackle Akeem Spence is sitting on 11 scholarship offers heading into his senior season and now the 6-foot-1, 280-pound prospect is starting to look ahead to official visits. Spence has already set one of those visits up and has a pretty good idea which schools he will take the rest to.

A three-star prospect according to Rivals.com, Spence has offers from Illinois, Iowa State, N.C. State, South Florida, East Carolina, Florida Atlantic, Florida International, Troy, Middle Tennessee State, Arkansas State and Southern Miss.

"I've got a couple favorites: Iowa State, ECU and I'm waiting on Florida State or Florida (offers)," Spence said.

Iowa State is also recruiting outside linebacker Rashad Smith from Fort Walton Beach. Smith and Spence are close friends and have started talking about taking official visits together. They already have one set up with the Cyclones.
