S Cutrer considers alternate to LSU

BATON ROUGE, La. -- When Kentwood (La.) Jewel Sumner coach Zephaniah Powell said Cowboys safety Jeremy Cutrer was a "priority" in LSU's recruiting class, he wasn't kidding.

Cutrer is the only safety in LSU's 27-man class, a need area for the Tigers, especially with more teams forcing them to use 5- and 6-man secondaries against spread offenses. So it's a particularly troubling development for LSU that Cutrer might not sign as intended.
