Hardin County (Savannah, TN) High School junior wide receiver/defensive back Sam Shutt is showcased…
SEC Schools Court Shutt
Sam Shutt Profile "Mississippi State and Auburn have begun showing me some interest," explained Sam. "Coach Felker from Mississippi State contacted me. Their junior day is this weekend. My parents and I are supposed to go down there." Shutt was already receiving interest from Arkansas State, Ole Miss, Tennessee and Troy. Arkansas State and Troy have both offered and now an SEC perennial contender is in the fact finding mode. Auburn has started sending me letters, so they are a new one too," said Shutt. "So far it's just letters, but they just started writing me a couple of weeks ago." In his high school career, Shutt has won post season honors on both sides of the ball. The talented prepster is willing to play where ever he is needed at the next level, but he prefers offense. "I really like receiver, but if they wanted me to play corner or safety I would definitely play that," explained Sam. "I love both sides of the ball, but I really like the receiver position. I feel that I can make plays with the ball in my hands. I enjoy making plays, so that's why am a little more (partial) to playing receiver." Sam has an inkling that he may soon be adding to his offer list. "I really like Mississippi State," said Sam. "I really like their program. Our Head Coach, Coach McAdams, his nephew (Blake McAdams) plays at Mississippi State. I really think they are going to offer. That's just my feeling. Coach Felker told me they really need receivers for the 2008 season and he said they really liked my film. I just kind of felt the vibe when I talked with him. If they offer, it would just be unbelievable." While Shutt is still contemplating his future, he has established a crtieria for making a decision. "The main thing for me is that I want to feel at home," said Shutt. "Academics is going to be important. Location is not going to be that big of a factor, but I wouldn't mind being closer to home."
