2023 Houston C.E. King DE Dylan Spencer (6'4, 240) committed to Texas over offers from Arizona State, Baylor, Houston, LSU, SMU, Texas A&M and USC.
UT was Spencer's first scholarship offer.
Spencer is rated as the No. 40 prospect in the DCTF Hot 100, checking in as the No. 8 DE.
Spencer joins Arlington Seguin S Jamel Johnson on the Horns' 2023 commitment list.
Spencer played his junior season at C.E. King after spending his sophomore year at Katy Taylor and his freshman year at West Orange-Stark. He broke onto the scene as an athlete playing multiple positions but has grown into a true defensive line projection and has the size and strength to play as a strongside end or he could possibly add even more weight and move inside at some point.
Spencer checks in as one of the state's highest-rated prospects because he has a rare combination of athleticism and power. You can easily see the suddenness in his play, however, he wins more of his one-on-one matchups in the trenches with talent over technique at this point. That statement can be read in a negative light, but that is not the intention, because he has a high upside for development in college.
