Will Black Knights add another Luetjen?

In February former Hennessey High quarterback, Matt Luetjen, signed a letter of intent to suit up with the Army Black Knights. Since then, the Army coaching staff has been going above and beyond in efforts to get a signature from his younger brother, Derrick.

After sealing the deal with former Hennessey High quarterback Matt Luetjen this past February, the Army coaching staff didn't waste any time pursuing his younger brother, Derrick Luetjen.

Derrick, who will be a senior at Hennessey High School this coming fall checks in at 6-foot-4 and around 245 pounds. Derrick just happens to be a standout on both sides of the ball for Hennessey like his brother Matt was a season ago. The younger Luetjen lines up at defensive end and tight end.

Army has already extended an offer to Luetjen, and since then has been keeping very close tabs on him. According to Derrick, Army offered him back in the month of January.

West Point assistant coach Tucker Waugh has been responsible for recruiting the talented DE/TE early on. From the sound of things, he's simply been on top of his game. "It's really good," Leutjen said of his relationship with Coach Waugh. "I talk to him a lot. We have a very good relationship."

Derrick is very excited about his offer from Army, but he's in no hurry to bring his recruitment to an end by verbally committing to the Black Knights. He wants to take his time and see what others have to offer. "West Point is definitely a place that I am considering," Luetjen shared with ArmySports.com. "I know it would be a great opportunity for me. It's a place where I could get a good education. But I want to take my time and check out a few other places, and see what everyone else has to offer. I probably won't make my decision until next year sometime, around Signing Day."

Note: Derrick has already attended camps at Oklahoma and Oklahoma State. He will be camping at Tulsa sometime in the near future. More to come on Luetjen in the near future.
