#48 TE Spencer Adkinson
Junior, 6'3", 237 lbs.
2015 Stats: Adkinson did not appear in a game last year, or the year before.
Position on Depth Chart: Spencer is not on the post-spring depth chart.
How He Came To USF: Adkinson played at Indian Rocks Christian School in Largo. He played tight end and linebacker and racked up a variety of statistics for the Golden Eagles:
- Nine carries for 59 yards and 3 TDs
- 35 catches for 578 yards and 10 TDs
- 130 tackles, 15 TFL, 7 sacks, 1 forced fumble, 3 fumble recoveries
Adkinson was also known for an incident that was more about the FHSAA's severe punishment than what he actually did. We don't know if he was on track to get any scholarship offers before that went down, but he ended up walking on to USF's team in the summer of 2013.
Recruiting Rankings: Spencer was not rated by any recruiting agency.
Projected Playing Time: We may not see much of him this year, either, unless he finds his way onto a protection or coverage unit on special teams. Adkinson's biggest impact may be on the scout team. Remember that when you see a player on the roster who doesn't play and you wonder why they're around. Everyone helps the team one way or another, even if you can't see it.
