Welcome to SEC Country’s daily Eye on the Tigers, a rundown of everything happening in LSU Tigers recruiting, with Sam Spiegelman. Today, we discuss a new LSU offer for Class of 2021 quarterback Garrett Nussmeier, whose father, Doug, has spent a lot of time coaching in the SEC.
LSU offers 2021 QB Garrett Nussmeier
Heads turned earlier this month when longtime college play-caller Doug Nussmeier was spotted on LSU’s campus for the skill position camp. Turns out his son was set to compete.
Garrett Nussmeier, a Class of 2021 quarterback at Marcus (Texas) High School near Dallas, turned in a notable performance. Two weeks later, he was rewarded with a scholarship offer.
LSU became the younger Nussmeier’s first offer, a monumental first step in the rising sophomore’s recruiting process.
“Its was an amazing feeling to see all the hard work that I put in day in and day out to pay off,” Nussmeier told SEC Country. “But I’ve got a lot more work to do and I am excited for this season at Marcus High School.”
The offer came during a conversation with Tigers offensive coordinator Steve Ensminger, who worked closely with Nussmeier during the passing clinic on June 3.
Ensminger and LSU coach Ed Orgeron evaluated Nussmeier’s film over the last few weeks before opting to deliver the good news.
“It was a great talk,” Nussmeier said. “We talked about how things were going and he said that he was impressed with how I did at camp. He said that him and Coach Orgeron had met and that I had an offer to be an LSU Tiger.”
Two weeks removed from Nussmeier’s strong outing at the LSU camp, he remains impressed with his time spent in Baton Rouge. Sandwich that with the fact that LSU was the first to offer and it’s fair to say that the coaches have left their mark on the fast-rising prospect.
“It was awesome,” he said of his time at LSU. “It’s such an amazing place and I really enjoyed being there. It was a great opportunity to learn from Coach Ensminger and I really liked meeting Coach O.”
