The 6-4, 290-pounder committed to Notre Dame over offers from Alabama, Cal, Houston, Michigan State, TCU, Texas Tech and many others.

Following his Junior Day visit to South Bend, Spears wasted little time pulling the trigger for the Irish. Notre Dame has already landed two of the most talented defensive line prospects this cycle in Spears and four-star defensive tackle Jacob Lacey. Could more be on the way?

“Honestly, just talking with the guys today, Jacob Lacey, Mazi Smith, Joseph Anderson, Nana Osafo-Mensah, and myself, if Notre Dame can land all of us, that would be the dream d-line class for Notre Dame," said Spears. "I could see another pass-rusher or two also."

Per the 247Sports Composite rankings, Spears is the No. 242 overall player nationally, No. 14 defensive tackle in the country and No. 30 prospect in Texas from the class of 2019.

According to 247Sports, he is the No. 298 overall recruit in the nation, No. 17 defensive tackle in the country and No. 36 recruit in the Lone Star State in 2019.
