Flower Mound Marcus QB Garrett Nussmeier (6'2, 180) picked LSU over offers from schools like Missouri, Georgia Tech, North Carolina, Penn State, Vanderbilt, TCU, Georgia, Arizona State, Arkansas, Miami, Mississippi State, Texas, Oklahoma State, Baylor, Washington State and more.
LSU, which won the 2020 National Championship and produced Heisman Trophy-winning and overall No. 1 NFL Draft pick QB Joe Burrow, was the first school to extend Nussmeier a scholarship offer back in June 2018.
"LSU was my first offer," Nussmeier explained. "It was an amazing feeling to know that somebody as high profile as LSU offered you your first offer. It was pretty special."
"When you get this opportunity (to play college football), and you are in this position, it is truly a blessing. I know people say it all the time, but it really is. Just to even be able to go to college for free and get to do what you love every single day. Some people don't like the college grind, but I am excited for it; to be around football all day long."
Nussmeier is rated as the No. 22 overall prospect in the DCTF Top 100 and is the No. 2 QB in the state.
Next Level Athlete Scouting Report: Nussmeier plays the game with an attacking style that's just fun to watch. Does everything well and could fit in multiple systems. He knows where to go with the football and processes fast. He's solid mechanically with a quick release. Nussmeier's arm strength has increased as he has matured, and that has added an abundance of value to his overall projection.
Nussmeier completed 228-of-431 passes for 3,788 yards and 38 touchdowns to earn 6-6A MVP honors.
Nussmeier is the son of Dallas Cowboys Quarterback Coach Doug Nussmeier.
