Name: Spencer Trussell

School: Arlington Martin (Arlington, TX)

Class: 2018


Scouting Report: I’m going to be very honest when it comes to 2018 defensive end, Spencer Trussell. Watch the first 17 seconds of his film and tell me this young man isn’t going to be an impact player at the next level. I dare you.

There’s literally nothing I don’t like about Trussell. You won’t find a lot of defensive ends that show the kind of explosiveness that this young man shows. Watch his ability to blow by the offensive lineman no matter what side of the ball he lines up. This is a big time physical player who is going to impress a lot of schools his senior season if his film hasn’t already done that. We’ve had him on our radar since January of 2017 and, over the last couple of weeks, so have big time Division-I schools like Kansas State who offered Trussell earlier this month as well as Texas Tech who is coming on strong lately.

A big time senior season for Arlington Martin will only add to those offers and the interest that is going to come with it.
