Myles Brennan surprised everyone, including his parents and LSU coach Les Miles, when he decided to commit to the Tigers during a weekend visit. So much so, that he brought Miles to tears.
“I just said, ‘Coach, I want to go ahead and shake your hand and tell you I’m going to go ahead and commit,'” Brennan told Patrick Ochs of the Biloxi Sun Herald. “At that time, he just started screaming and tears started coming out of his eyes. He gave me a big ol’ hug. My parents started tearing up and crying because they didn’t know it was coming.”
Brennan’s decision to commit came just minutes after Miles extended an offer to the three-star quarterback. Rated as the No. 27 pro-style quarterback in the Class of 2017 on the 247Sports Composite rankings, Brennan also holds offers from Kentucky and Vanderbilt, among other schools, but wasted no time deciding LSU would be his future home.
“I’m done,” Brennan told Ochs. “Once I committed, I looked Coach Miles in the eyes. They had Feleipe Franks decommit last year so it’s a little nerve racking from their standpoint I guess, but I looked him in the eyes and said that’s it. Once I commit, I’m not the one who is going to go out and take all five officials and go do everything and visit all these other places. That’s just not right on my part.
“I’m committed to LSU and from here on out every visit I’m going to take is going to be to LSU.”
