LSU quarterback Brandon Harris has been in quite a few headlines in recent weeks. He talked about wanting to emulate Lebron James. Now the Tigers’ signal caller is in the news because of what Senior Bowl executive director Phil Savage had to say about him on a Monday radio appearance.
Savage was critical of Alabama quarterback Cooper Bateman for his deep ball in the same appearance. However, Savage, who spent time as an NFL general manager, pinpointed a different potential flaw in Harris’ game after watching him at the Manning Passing Academy this weekend. In a roundtable with the WJOX sports talk radio station in Alabama
“I walked away Saturday saying, ‘Wow, this kid’s got a lot of talent, but he just does not have control of the ball.’ I mean, he missed a number of passes on Saturday that were just pitch-and-catch-type situations,” Savage said when speaking of Harris.
Savage saw Harris throwing at the camp where Harris was a counselor.
During his two seasons at LSU, Harris has completed just over 50 percent of his passes. He has been on the record as saying the Tigers’ offense will “soar this season.”
