Hutson lands first BCS offer
Sometimes if a player is better than his offer list, one offer is all it takes to get momentum and see a flurry of offers. Despite Destrehan (La.) High School offensive lineman Ethan Hutson only holding one offer from Tulane, he has proven that he is worthy of several more and on Monday, Hutson added his second offer - his first from a BCS conference.
Up until recently, Hutson had received little to no interest from Colorado. But after a spring stop at Destrehan from the Big 12 program, it didn't take long for limited interest to turn into an official offer.
"I got offered by Colorado," Hutson said on Monday. "It came out of the blue today."
Though spring practice is over at Destrehan, Colorado's Ashley Ambrose was in town to pick up film on Hutson and stayed to watch Hutson's performance in his spring scrimmage. What he saw was an impressive and dominating performance.
"Coach Ambrose came down today and he got junior film and he sat and watched the spring game with Coach Robichaux," said Hutson. "He was telling Coach Rob that I should already have 20 offers."
With a goal of playing for a BCS program, the Colorado offer really excited Hutson and his family and he is now hoping to add Boulder to his list of stops for this summer.
"It feels great to have a BCS offer," he said. "It feels really good. I know Colorado is a BCS school and it's in the Big 12 North. It has a good history there and a great atmosphere. My parents have both been up to Boulder twice so I know that the surroundings are good."
Hutson, who is academically qualified and has been receiving Ivy League interest, likely projects as a center but he has played every position on the offensive line at Destrehan.
