Deeper Look Into the Game of Ty Sponseller:

Strengths: Sponseller is a man of many talents, able to play at an elite level both in coverage and against the run in high school. When the ball is in the air his ability to track the ball is solid and his above average speed allows him to make spectacular plays all over the field. He is a great tackler, as he shows the ability to both tackle in the open field on skilled athletes or in a crowd and shed blockers. Constantly making big plays for his team, numerous fumble recoveries and interception returns for touchdowns.

Weaknesses: His size and weight may prove to cause issues with both his early playing time and future position at UC. At 6-foot-3, he seems to be a bit tall to play safety, as he did in high school, At only 195 pounds, he is too small to play outside linebacker at the college level.

Projection: Sponseller will have a productive career regardless of where he plays for one reason: he is a flat out football player. He runs to the football and always delivers a hit. He has a knack for making plays in big time situations for a team that constantly needed them.
