Player Overview

Spruill was a third-team All-ACC pick as a senior after finishing second on the team with 62 tackles, including a team-high 13.5 tackles for loss. He is also tied with Duke Pettijohn for second in SU history with 40.5 career TFLs.

Strengths Weaknesses

STRENGTHS: Plays fast and explodes to the ball, arriving with violent intentions. Fluid body control with the hip action and coordinated footwork to hold up in space and coverage. Improved functional strength to attack the run and fill lanes. Team leader with a solid resume as a four-year starter, seeing time at outside and inside linebacker.

WEAKNESSES: Lean torso and lanky frame with limited room to get stronger. Still developing his instincts and anticipation, more of a see-ball, get ball type who needs to see it before reacting. Struggles to shed blocks and will get lost in the trash. Still developing the mental part of his game, an area that seemed to stall. Will overpursue his target and needs to do a better job breaking down.
