Noah Spence, one of the top defensive ends in the country, has committed to the Ohio State Buckeyes. The 6'3", 245-pound edge rusher from Harrisburg, PA's Bishop Mcdevitt High School also considered the Florida Gators, the LSU Tigers, the Penn State Nittany Lions and the Maryland Terrapins. Spence is rated as a five-star prospect by most major recruiting services.
What's not to like about Spence's game? He has an excellent first step and turns the corner with ease. His build is already impressive and his frame will allow for more. And Spence plays hard, refusing to quit on plays with his consistent motor. Spence isn't as raw as some of his contemporaries, and at this point his variety of pass-rushing moves is what sets him apart. While most of his moves are to the outside with his speed, he does show an ability to knife inside the tackle and get to the passer.
He'll need to improve against the run, but should be an early contributor in the Big Ten as a pass rusher.
