Spillman was a highly productive linebacker as a junior, when he recorded 101 tackles, 14.5 tackles for loss, 6 pass breakups, and 2 sacks. He’s also got some versatility to his game, with coverage snaps from the slot and plenty of opportunities to rush the passer from the edge on his sophomore tape.
Tennessee is viewed as the frontrunner here. The 6-foot-1, 216-pound Spillman is the younger brother of Nate Spillman, a Tennessee signee from the 2023 class. He’s also teammates with a 4-star 2024 defensive back commit for the Vols. 247Sports’ Steve Wiltfong has already put in a Crystal Ball prediction for the younger Spillman to follow his brother to Knoxville.
But Ohio State is in the hunt, with Tony Alford leading the way on his recruitment. Spillman is scheduled to take an official visit to Columbus on June 9, one weekend before an official to Tennessee.
In the industry-generated 247 Composite, Spillman ranks as the No. 22 linebacker in the class and the No. 245 overall recruit. You can view his highlight tape below, via Hudl:
