LSU Tigers fans have been spoiled by good quarterback play. In 2019, Joe Burrow put together one of the best single-seasons in NCAA history en route to a College Football Playoff victory against Clemson.
In 2020, the Tigers landed four-star QB Garrett Nussmeier. Will he be the one to come close to replicating Burrow’s numbers?
Garrett Nussmeier Enrolls at LSU
Before agreeing to move to Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Nussmeier weighed offers from Arkansas, Baylor, Georgia, Miami, Michigan State, Mississippi State, Missouri, North Carolina, Oklahoma State, Penn State, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Texas A&M, and Vanderbilt.
Head coach Ed Orgeron has been able to attract elite signees since the national championship, and even though offensive lineman Dare Rosenthal entered the transfer portal, Oregorn was able to sign four-star tackle Garrett Dellinger. The addition of Nussmeier certainly helps bolster this year’s recruiting class.
The pro-style quarterback arrived on campus in January.
Garrett Nussmeier Highlights
Watching this highlight compilation, the new LSU QB looks like a prolific passer. He throws a tight spiral and could unleash bombs when he wants to.
For Nussmeier, it is all in the family. His father is Doug Nussmeier, who played for the New Orleans Saints in the 1990s. He is currently on the Dallas Cowboys’ coaching staff and has worked with Alabama and Florida.
LSU football is getting yet another quarterback prospect in this year’s batch of recruits. Garrett Nussmeier will get the opportunity to cement himself into the starter’s role, and with some good fortune, he could hear his name called on ESPN during a future NFL Draft.
