LSU’s 2017 recruiting class is shaping up to be one of the best in the country, but lacked a presence at the quarterback position.
Alas, the Tigers have added a quarterback to the mix.
The nation’s No. 28 pro-style quarterback in the Class of 2017, Myles Brennan, pledged to LSU on Saturday afternoon.
Brennan, a three-star prospect out of St. Stanislaus High School (Bay St. Louis, Miss.), previously visited LSU’s campus for Junior Day in late February.
He also held offers from other top-tier programs such as Cal, Indiana, Kentucky, Cincinnati, Memphis, Vanderbilt, Wake Forest, West Virginia and Wisconsin. Alabama, Auburn, Ole Miss, Mississippi State, Oklahoma State and Oregon were also showing interest in the 6-foot-3, 180-pounder.
Brennan joins an elite cast of 2017 LSU football commits, which includes the nation’s No. 2 defensive tackle Tyler Shelvin, the nation’s No. 8 offensive guard Edward Ingram, four-star athlete Patrick Queen, Louisiana’s No. 18 prospect running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire and in-state athlete Jontre Kirklin.
Brennan’s commitment comes shortly after LSU quarterback target Malik Cunningham pledged to Louisville last Saturday. Cunningham was considered one of the Tigers’ top dual-threat quarterback targets in the Class of 2017, along with St. James quarterback Lowell Narcisse.
Narcisse, the No. 6 dual-threat quarterback prospect in the country, remains LSU’s No. 1 target in the Class of 2017. But the Tigers were expected to try and bring in multiple quarterbacks in the signing class, and inched one step closer toward that by securing a commitment from Brennan.
