Sutton is just pure and simple an explosive football player. Ignore the height and weight here and just watch his film – you have to be impressed. He’s extremely fast off the football, to the point where you know for a fact that he could play OLB at the next level. He led his region in sacks with 8, should be able to get into double digits no problem in 2020. Just a freak athlete, and from the player comment box he says that he is one of the top cleanjerk lifters in the country – definitely can see that. Sutton could stand to work on his lateral quickness – something we have seen him work on this offseason. He uses his hands extremely well getting off blocks and just a natural getting out to the edge. Crazy the amount of hustle he shows on film. Sutton is a legit football player, and should be one of the top defenders in his classification in 2020. If he gets some reps at linebacker this year, or at least standing up and playing more in space, that would obviously sell to colleges, but the urgency he plays with havoc he creates in the backfield should make a good argument too. Size doesn’t always matter when you are this explosive like Sutton. Word around Coffee is that Sutton has a crazy high work ethic too. We first heard about Sutton though from another high school coach in a completely different side of the state, but that really shows how good he is, when random coaches with no attachment to Sutton are letting us know.
