LSU Football: 4-star QB to LSU makes too much sense not to happen

LSU football is hoping 2021 four-star pro-style quarterback Garrett Nussmeier will land in Baton Rouge.

LSU football is hoping four-star quarterback Garrett Nussmeier will land in Baton Rouge and possibly take the reigns from Myles Brennan in a couple of years.

Nussmeier, 6-foot-2/182 lbs from Flower Mound, TX, is rated in 247Sports’ composite rankings as the No. 30 player in the state of Texas and the No. 11 pro-style quarterback in the nation.

The dynamic quarterback told 247Sports this week that he plans to announce his commitment on April 18, after taking visits to LSU, North Carolina and Texas.

While Nussmeier is doing his due diligence and not rushing into a decision, it feels like his commitment to LSU is inevitable.

It just makes too much sense not to happen.

The Tigers were the first program to offer Nussmeier, which he describes as “special” and meaning a lot to him. The Texas native also recently pointed out his tremendous relationship with the LSU coaching staff, saying “I’ve had a great relationship with Coach O and coach Ensminger for a really long time”.

And then there’s the Scott Linehan connection.

Linehan, who was recently hired as LSU’s passing game coordinator, coached Doug Nussmeier, Garrett’s father, in college at Idaho for a couple of seasons (Linehan was Idaho’s offensive coordinator).

The younger Nussmeier said he has a “great relationship” with Linehan. In fact, he told Rivals earlier this month “He (Linehan) is a great coach and an even better person….I think he’s going to bring a great passing attack. I really like his identity on offense.”

It sounds like Nussmeier and Linehan could be a perfect match.

I’m sure Nussmeier will give all the schools he’s interested in an equal look.

But I’d be shocked if ends up anywhere but Baton Rouge.
