The Tigers landed a future safety today with the pledge of Jeremy Cutrer (Kentwood, La./ Sumner). He committed to LSU around lunch on Monday, after visiting the Tigers over the weekend for their junior day.
“The main thing is that he’s a Louisiana kid and wanted to stay and play in-state,” Sumner coach Zephaniah Powell said. “He’s so excited to play for coach [Les] Miles and his staff. He knows he will have a chance to play for SEC and national championships. They develop their defensive backs so well, like Partick Peterson, Morris Claiborne, and all the others. And he’s so focused, especially on academics. Jeremy has a great head on his shoulders. He knows that if playing football doesn’t work out, he wants to be a productive citizen.”
Cutrer, 6-foot-3 and 175 pounds, plays safety, cornerback and receiver for his high school team. During the past two years he has 17 interceptions, 94 tackles and accounted for seven touchdowns. He also made all-state during his sophomore and junior seasons.
“Jeremy’s a fluid athlete,” Powell said. “He has very good ball instincts and is not afraid of contact. He can fill the alley and will really hit you. And he’s the type of kid that wants to play everything on special teams. He’s a total team player with a great work ethic.”
LSU had a productive weekend, landing a few commitments for its class of 2013. They now have four commitments for their 2013 class, three of which came off their junior day this past weekend.
