Sutton was a three-star Scout.com recruit that was named first-team All-District as a tight end and second team as a safety. Sutton was then named first-team All-District as a junior. Sutton chose SMU over offers from BYU, Colorado and Rice and was originally going to play safety coming out of high school.
Sutton caught everyone’s eyes during the early portion of the season last year during practice. However, in game action, Sutton only managed two catches for 27 yards before being shut down for the year. The 6-4, 218-pound freshman was medically redshirted. During practice, Sutton still made a name for himself with some sensational catches including a couple of one handed grabs around defenders or sometimes with defenders draped all over him. Despite this, it was a disappointing year for Sutton due to the promise he showed. However, he was unable to stay on the field and this will be a big focus heading into the 2015 season.
