Nussmeier, the son of former New Orleans Saints quarterback Doug Nussmeier, is the ninth 2021 commitment for the Tigers. The Texas native selected LSU over offers from Baylor, North Carolina and others.
Garrett is ranked No. 104 in the 247Sports Composite rankings and is the No. 7 pro-style quarterback. He threw for 3,788 yards and 38 touchdowns as a junior for Marcus High School in 2019.
The news of Nussmeier’s commitment elevates LSU to No. 10 in the 247Sports Composite team recruiting rankings. The Tigers currently have nine commitments — six of whom are four- or five-star prospects.
