Who is Tre Tre McCutchin?:

Tre Tre McCutchin is a senior student-athlete at Lyndon B. Johnson (LBJ) in Austin, Texas, which has an enrolment of ~825 students. He is the brother of current USC cornerback Latrell McCutchin, of (popular Netflix reality show) Friday Night Tykes fame. In 2021 as a Junior, Tre Tre recorded 100 total tackles, 13.5 TFLs, four sacks and one interception. He was a Texas District 13-4A D-I unanimous first-team selection, en-route to leading LBJ Austin to a 15-1 record and a 4A D-I title game appearance. 247sports ranks him as the No. 870 player in the country and No. 69 LB. After the Gophers’ annual Summer Splash recruiting event, Tre Tre settled on committing to the Gophers, his only power five offer.

  • Scouting Report:

Listed at 6-foot-1, 203 pounds, McCutchin is slightly undersized, but there is no reason why he can’t fill out physically by the time he arrives on campus. On the football field, he is an incredibly athletic and instinctual player, that looks very natural playing the linebacker position. He has very impressive coverage skills, and his pursuit and burst are great for someone his age. Playing at a very high level of Texas high school football, McCutchin could contribute very quickly in the Big Ten conference.

Instant Reaction:

Tre Tre McCutchin is the fourth highest-ranked player in the Gophers 2023 recruiting class. Texas is a hotbed for high school football talent, so getting a player as credentialed as McCutchin is always a positive. I was very impressed with his junior tape, and he quickly has become one of my favorite players in this class. He looks incredibly comfortable on the football field, and I think he still can get a lot better, which is scary to think about. He is one of the highest-potential commitments for the Gophers in this class.

What is next?:

After a busy week with four commitments, the Gophers currently have the 12th-ranked recruiting class in the country according to 247sports… yes you read that right. Having 12 total commitments is a bit on the high-end for most programs at this point, but being ranked ahead of Georgia, USC and Texas at any point in the process is monumental for a program like Minnesota. There is still a possibility that the Gophers add more players soon, following the weekend’s Summer Splash event, but I would imagine that it will cool down eventually before the winter’s National Signing Day.
