4-star QB Garrett Nussmeier updates his recruitment, pushes back his commitment date
For college programs still searching for their quarterback in the 2021 recruiting cycle, Texas native Garrett Nussmeier is likely at the top of those programs’ list.
SEC fans should be familiar with his last name, as Nussmeier’s father Doug has served as offensive coordinator at both Alabama and Florida. Doug Nussmeier currently serves as the quarterbacks coach for the Dallas Cowboys.
The four-star Texas signal-caller plays for Marcus High School out of Flower Mound and was scheduled to announce his college decision in the coming weeks, but that plan has been altered by the coronavirus outbreak. Without the opportunity to take all of his official visits this spring, Nussmeier has pushed back his previously scheduled commitment plans.
“My original plan was to commit around April 18th. I wasn’t able to finish my visits because of the virus and I know this is bigger than football, so everyone stay safe out there,” Nussmeier said in a YouTube video posted by Tiger Details. “Currently, my plan is to wait and see how this thing goes and hopefully everyone does their part and this thing dies down.”
The 6-foot-1, 182-pound Nussmeier is rated as a four-star prospect, the nation’s No. 7 pro-style passer and the No. 104 overall prospect in the country by 247Sports Composite Rankings.
LSU is considered to be among the top contenders for Nussmeier’s service, although Texas A&M, Baylor, Texas and North Carolina have all extended scholarship offers to the Lone Star State native.
