Rummel's Steltz has close ties to LSU

If you are looking for one of the top high school safeties in the nation then look no further than Metairie-Archbishop Rummel standout Craig Steltz. <br><br> The 6-2, 200-pounder has close ties to the LSU program since his brother Kevin is the Tigers' starting fullback and he will be visiting LSU in January.

"Right now he is visiting LSU the third week in January," said Steltz's father, Keith Steltz. "That is the only one he has set so far but UCLA, Colorado and Florida State will get the other ones. I don't know who the last one will be."


Nick Saban likes the style of play Steltz brings to the table and he would fit in nicely with the Tigers' defensive scheme.


"They like his play-making ability and think he is a big hitter," Keith said. "He has a knack for making plays and big stops."


In addition to his safety role, Steltz is also averaging seven yards a carry at tailback for Rummel and he also returns kickoffs and punts.


LSU had a ton of unofficial visitors for the Tigers' huge win over Georgia on Sept. 20 and Steltz was one of those prized recruits in attendance.

"It was a spectacular crowd and a great game," Keith said. "He really enjoyed himself. He has been going to LSU games since he was a little kid but that was a great game all around."
