Miles, LSU staff keeping an eye on Cutrera

Scott-Acadiana linebacker Jacob Cutrera (6-4, 225, 4.5) is a player the LSU staff is keeping a close eye on heading into the May evaluation period.

As a junior, Cutrera was an honorable mention All-State selection after he posted 112 tackles. He had one of the top single game performances on the defensive side of the ball last year when he racked up 30 tackles against Carencro.

While most high school kids spend their spring break at the beach, Cutrera spent most of his at the Ponderosa watching the LSU football team go through a series of practices and capped off the week at the Tigers' scrimmage on Saturday.

"I went to three of the practices last week and it was awesome," he said. "It's totally different from my high school practices. They are run so much quicker."

Getting the chance to see how Les Miles runs his practices is important to players because it gives them an idea of what to expect if they choose LSU. It also gives them a first hand glance at how the coaches teach the game.

"I talked to some of the players and they said the practices are a lot different this year," Cutrera said. With coach (Nick) Saban there was a lot of screaming and hollering from the coaches. With coach Miles there was not any cussing and when you made a mistake he talked to you and told what you did wrong rather than just yelling at you."

Cutrera was excited to see the Tigers in action and apparently the LSU coaches were excited to see him. He is still waiting on an offer from LSU but there are some signs that one is in the works.

"I talked to coach (Bo) Pellini and coach Miles and they said they wished I could skip my senior year and come play now," said the blue-chip prospect. "They said they are going to come watch me during the spring and talk about an offer then. They want to sign four or five linebackers this year because they said it is not one of their deepest areas."

Cutrera is still waiting on his first offer but it has been hard for college coaches to get in touch with the coaches at Acadiana due to persistent problems with the phone lines.

Notre Dame, Oklahoma, Auburn and Ole Miss are some of the schools that plan to travel to Scott during the spring and you can be assured that his offer status will look drastically different one coaches see him in action.
