Helmet cameras are in this spring. Last week, we learned that Clemson would be utilizing Schutt’s impressive helmet camera with its quarterbacks during this spring. Yesterday, Texas Tech joined in on the burgeoning trend. Now, it looks like LSU will also be using the technology this year. Schutt sent out this tweet, with an LSU helmet that has a helmet camera inside of it. They are calling this “Schutt Vision.”

Some teams have experimented with using Go Pro cameras with their quarterbacks. Schutt’s helmet camera is the logical progression of those efforts. By placing a camera in a quarterback’s helmet, coaches can accurately follow each of his reads, and see exactly what he’s seeing from the field. This is some really awesome technology, and expect many more teams to adopt it over the next few weeks.
