Earlier this summer, it was reported LSU Quarterback Myles Brennan was up to 212 pounds, a far cry from his playing weight during his St. Stanislaus days, which has the hype train all but out of the station.
Brennan has been turning heads throughout fall camp, accounting for 260 scrimmage yards through the team’s two scrimmages.
Joe Burrow remains the incumbent starter heading into 2019, but the former Rock-A-Chaw has reportedly been making it a battle every step of the way.
By the sounds of it, Head Coach Ed Orgeron has more of a ‘QB1A’ and ‘QB1B’ situation on his hands, just two weeks out from the season.
“He moved around in the pocket. He made some deep throws. I think some of the balls that were not completed because the receiver dropped the ball right in his hands. John Robertson obviously doesn’t coach, but he deserves everything. And he says ‘Coach, your young quarterback is getting better and better. He’s getting more comfortable with this offense, he’s staying in the pocket, his reads are better.’ Steve is really pleased with the progress of Myles, so we’ve got two quarterbacks that can go in the game right now and win it for us. So I do believe that.”
A redshirt sophomore, Brennan has just 30 career pass attempts, going for 247 yards and a touchdown with two picks.
