Brown recluse? “Violin pattern” is not very distinct. Sorry it got mutilated.
Very much not a brown recluse, as they don’t have very noticeable “fur” or fuzz on their legs. The violin pattern is also typically darker than the rest of the carapace, unlike the spider you have here.
If I had to take a wild guess, I’d think this was a young tarantula, which would mean that spider was completely harmless, so no need to fret if you find another like it.
Omg I’ve never been on this website but I had to make an account to say I have pictures of a very similar spider, found a day before your posting and we are in Nashville! Have you been able to identify it yet? I and my roommates were/are seriously scared and concerned. Someone said they thought it to be a cave spider?
