WR Emonee Spence Added to 2015 Watch List

2015 WR Emonee Spence (6’3, 185, 4.56) of Flanagan High has recorded 35 receptions for 600 yards and seven touchdowns this season and is a big reason why the Falcons are 8-1 and headed to the postseason.

The talented junior wideout has been added to the 2015 Watch List.

Spence doesn’t claim any offers yet, but says he’s hearing plenty from several programs.

“I’m getting interest from MiamiDukeAuburnGeorgia, and Iowa St.”

He spoke about the programs that are recruiting him.

Auburn is sending me game invites and a lot of information about their program. They’ve asked for an unofficial visit, but I haven’t made it up there yet.

Iowa St. and Duke have sent questionnaires and recruiting information, and they’ve requested my transcript.

Georgia is sending questionnaires and recruiting materials, too.”

The Miami Hurricanes are showing Spence the most attention.

Miami is definitely showing the most interest. They want me to attend a game and they’ve sent eight letters at once with tons of information.”

Flanagan’s junior standout hasn’t had the chance to visit Miami unofficially, but plans to in the near future.

Spence said that playing time as freshman won’t necessarily determine his college choice.

“I feel that I have a great work ethic and that I can contribute early, but I haven’t really decided if that’s going to be important to me.”

A program’s location won’t be important to him.

“That doesn’t matter. I’ll play wherever I feel the most comfortable.”

Spence shared what he feels sets him apart from his peers.

“I think my ability to go get the ball in the air is my strength. Nobody has been able to stop that part of my game yet.”

Tyrek Cole, another 2015 Watch List prospect, has presented Spence with his most difficult challenge to date.

“I think I got the best of him last year, but this year was a more intense battle and it was pretty even.”

Spence has plans to join the track team and participate in the high jump, the 100M and 200M, and some relay races.

Head coach Devin Bush says of Spence: “He’s dependable on and off the field. He’s very bright and takes coaching well. He’s a hard worker, a big time talent, and his potential is through the roof. He’s a little raw, but he’s developing nicely.”
