LSU lands commitment from Cutrer

LSU football received its fourth commitment for the 2013 signing class Monday morning when Jewel Sumner defensive back Jeremy Cutrer phoned coach Les Miles with the news.

Cutrer received a scholarship offer while attending LSU's junior day over the weekend.

"I've been wanting to play for LSU since I was old enough to turn on the TV and watch them play," Cutrer said." "I can't even explain how happy I am."

All four of LSU's early commitments hail from Louisiana high schools.

Cutrer joins Loranger star Jeryl Brazil, the first of the 2013 commitments, to make two of the four pledges from District 8-3A.

As a sophomore at Sumner, Cutrer had 41 tackles and 14 interceptions, with three of the picks returned for touchdowns. As a junior, he had 53 tackles, three interceptions and two forced fumbles.

Cutrer, 6-foot-2, 180 pounds, projects as a safety in college.

"He wants an opportunity where he can play for SEC championships and national championships," Sumner coach Zephanieh Powell said.

Cutrer grew up in the 7th Ward section of New Orleans, relocating with his family to the Kentwood area in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.
