36 college football programs wanted Austin LBJ Early College cornerback Latrell McCutchin to commit to them. That's how many 2021 offers he received to play at the next level. Originally, he was an Alabama commit, but decommitted earlier this year and ultimately flipped to Oklahoma on July 4th.
"Oklahoma stood out because the opportunity to change how the world views defensive backs coming out of the university really intrigued me," said McCutchin.
That amount of college interest is because McCutchin's ranked as the eighth best Texas prospect for the Class of 2021. VYPE even recognized him as the best football recruit in the Austin area in January. Many athletes would be satisfied with that type of recognition, but McCutchin feels like he's still overlooked.
