Sutton Ready For Big Soph Season

2018 Blinn CB Ben Sutton (5-11, 175) is up to seven offers and more could be on the way...

"I have seven offers right now," Sutton told recently. "I have CincinnatiArizona StateLouisiana-Monroe, North Dakota, Prairie View, New Mexico and Sam Houston."

New Mexico actually was the latest school to offer the talented corner and he said they like what he brings to the table.

"I've been talking with coach (Bob) DeBesse for a while and he said they liked my film and the way I play," Sutton said. 

In addition to the schools that have offered, Sutton said he's also been talking with Tulsa and TCU.

"Tulsa definitely wants to get me out for a visit and I've been talking a lot with the TCU defensive backs coach (Paul Gonzales), so I have some other schools interested, but they haven't offered quite yet," Sutton noted.

Sutton redshirted last season, but as a freshman in 2015, he finished with a team-leading 15 pass breakups while also posting 19 tackles and an interception that took back 91 yards for a score.

"I can play both corner or free safety," Sutton said. "I'd say I am more of a cover-guy because of my quickness and how I play the ball in the air. I just love to compete though, so I will play anywhere I'm needed."

As a prep at Clear Creek (League City, Tx.) High School, Sutton was a top cover corner, but he was unable to qualify for a scholarship, so he opted to take the JUCO route to continue his football career while getting his academics in order.

"I liked the coaches here, especially my DB coach, coach (Thomas) Rocco," Sutton recalled. "It's a good school and a really good football program, so I felt like it would help get me ready for the next level."

Sutton is set to finish up his two-year degree in December and he will have two years to play two following the completion of the 2017 football season.
