Idk how big he is, but it's not a brown recluse they don't have the stripes like this one does and their smaller

Brown recluse usually have a violin shape on their back. I didn't see that on this one. Looks similar though. I'll keep researching

You should probably be careful, because I'm pretty sure that is a brown recluse. It's venom pretty much rots your flesh away.
