Sutton Down to Two

Courtland Sutton has made a final decision on where he'll end up playing college football. However, only a select few know exactly what colleges he'll chose to sign with this up and coming Wednesday. He has, however, narrowed it down to two colleges. The question is, out of the five colleges that have extended scholarship offers has BYU made his top two?

On Wednesday, high school prospects all across the country will be signing their national letters of intent to official accept a scholarship from a college of their choice. Last week BYU ended what was another successful weekend of recruiting some of the nation's top athletes. However, there was one recruit that wasn't in attendance but had been to BYU previously. That prospect was Brenham High School's (TX) Courtland Sutton. Although Sutton has offers from Colorado, Rice, Texas State, Tulsa, and Washington State, he's narrowed down his list down to two schools.

"I've narrowed it down to SMU and BYU," Sutton said. "Those are the two schools that I've narrowed it down to."

While he has narrowed his choices down to SMU and BYU, Sutton already knows where he intends to sign this Wednesday but isn't ready to let that information out just yet.

"I know where I'm going but I'm keeping it in my head and very few outside the family know where I'm going," said Sutton. "I'm just keeping it close but everybody will know on Wednesday where I've decided to go."

Sutton explained what the appeal of SMU is to him.

"Well, with SMU I like the campus and the love the football team and the way they're moving over to a new conference," said Sutton. "I like their program and even though they didn't go to a bowl game last year they've been to one in the past. I just like the way the run things."

Now Sutton's thoughts on why he might choose BYU come national letter of intent day this Wednesday.

"I just liked that people that were there and the coaches that recruited me," said Sutton. "When I took my official visit there it was legit! I loved my visit and the way they made me feel when I was there was great. I had to go out there and see BYU for myself and had a great time out there. They made me really like it out there and that was something I had to see for myself."

BYU ended up beating the University of Texas the weekend Sutton made his official visit. Since that time he's been out to various campuses and exploring his options. Like many other recruits he'll just be glad when it's all done and over with.

"I'll be happy when it's all over but I'm also happy that I've had a chance to experience it all," said Sutton. "It will be good to get things over with but I'm grateful that I've received the opportunities that I've been given. On Wednesday everyone will know where I'll be going."

Sutton plans on signing his NLI around 8:30 AM Central Standard Time which will be around 7:30 AM Mountain Time in Utah.

"We're going to start kind of early around 8:30 and we have a lot of people who will be signing to go places," said Sutton. "Around that time is when I'll be signing."

Stay tuned BYU fans! There just might be some good news coming on National Letter of Intent Day.
