BATON ROUGE, La. — It’s time to say goodbye to Brandon Harris.
Harris announced on Monday that he will be transferring from LSU. He will leave the school with one year of eligibility left. And, as you’d expect, a handful of former LSU teammates took to Twitter after Harris made his announcement to say their farewells and wish him good luck on his future endeavors.
Here’s a smattering of replies and responses.

Defensive back John Battle has a nickname for Harris. Most LSU fans would probably disagree with it, but it’s a nickname nonetheless.

Malachi Dupre apparently knows that nickname too. He used it as a hashtag.

Tashawn Bower, fresh off an invitation to the NFL Combine, found time to wish Harris luck. Because to Bower, Harris isn’t just a former teammate. He’s like a sibling.

Of all the well-wishes sent out on Twitter, perhaps none was more heartfelt than the one from Australian punter Josh Growden. Growden seemed deeply sincere in his message, showing that he and Harris had fostered a relationship on and off the field.
To the guy who calls me Koala and was always first to get around me after a good punt @B6Harris gonna miss you bro. All the best #6

With Harris gone, LSU has 5 scholarship quarterbacks remaining on roster. Incumbent starter Danny Etling seems poised to regain his job as LSU’s starting quarterback, with inexperienced Justin McMillan and Lindsey Scott Jr. close behind. Incoming freshmen Lowell Narcisse and Myles Brennan also have the possibility to compete for the starting job. For more on that quarterback competition, read here.
