College recruiters know the names Pat Swilling and Karl Butler, but another Crusader is starting to draw interest at Brother Martin. At ‘6-3", 194-pounds, Malcolm Suttleff has the size college coaches love at wide receiver. Suttleff spoke about the increased interest he is receiving this spring on visit at Louisiana's Junior Day.
"I've been receiving interest from UL, Mississippi State, Stanford and Princeton," Suttleff stated. "Tulane and LSU have contacted recently contacted me, so things are starting to pick up now."
Malcolm Suttleff finished the 2008 season as a member of the 9-5A All-District team, with 35 receptions, for 514 yards and 7 TDs. What are Malcolm's strengths and weaknesses in his game?
"My strengths are my hands and route running," said Malcolm. "My hands are strong and my route running is has as well as anyone coming out of high school right now. I have a great receiving coach and we spend a lot of time working on running routes. My speed and cutting ability are the areas I need to work on this summer. I run a 4.55 forty right now, but I can improve on that time."
Malcolm visited the Cajun spring game this past weekend and enjoyed the visit to Lafayette.
"I really liked the field turf, stated Malcolm." "UL would be a great place to play college football; their offense is very similar to ours and I recognized some of the calls Coach Wingerter was signaling in from the sideline. Coach Mason told me that UL is looking for a few big receivers and their program is really starting to move up in the Sun Belt."
Football will not be the only factor that drives Suttleff's decision on his choice of college.
"Academics are important to me," Malcolm said. "I'm interested in Communications and getting a degree is important to me and my family."
