2021 four-star quarterback Garrett Nussmeier out of Marcus High School in Flower Mound has opted to commit to the LSU Tigers over the Texas Longhorns, he announced yesterday.

Nussmeier also fielded offers from the Texas A&M Aggies and the Baylor Bears, among others. The six-foot-two, 185-pound passer is the No. 62 prospect nationally, and is ranked No. 13 among pocket passers in the 2021 class. He also comes from football stock, as they say, because his father, Doug Nussmeier, is the quarterback coach for the Dallas Cowboys.

He’ll join an already crowded quarterback next fall, as the Tigers signed ESPN 300 Max Johnson, the son of former NFL and Florida State Seminoles quarterback Brad Johnson, and four-star recruit TJ Finley as part of LSU’s 2020 class. Which is to say this might not be the Longhorns’ last opportunity to woo Nussmeier to the Forty Acres in the coming years.
