LSU QB Brandon Harris entered the 2016 season as the Tigers starting quarterback. After losing his starting job to Purdue transfer Danny Etling early in the season, he’ll leave 2016 under much less certain terms within the LSU program.
But that doesn’t mean he’s planning to transfer, as some speculated in the weeks following in his demotion.
Harris opened up his twitter account for questions late Monday night, and social media users peppered him with questions about leaving Baton Rouge. It would have been an easy spot to hint at a possible departure or perhaps vent his frustration at the way things went for him this season, but the Tigers quarterback chose to do neither.
In fact, he reassured people that he’ll be sticking around for another year in spite of two new quarterbacks expected on campus as part of the 2017 recruiting class.
Here are two different transfer questions that were answered straight on by Harris:
Harris finished the 2016 regular season with just 25 pass attempts, all of which happened during the first two games of the season and under the direction of former LSU coach Les Miles. The junior, who has played in games for LSU since 2014, has one season of eligibility remaining.
