Myles Brennan was one of several LSU commitments on hand for the Bayou Picnic this weekend.
But the 6-foot-3, 180-pound Mississippi passer felt compelled to clear the air late on Sunday night after what he considered was a perplexing weekend.
The three-star pro-style quarterback issued a reminder to LSU fans that he remained committed to LSU despite procuring an offer from Ole Miss on Friday prior to his visit to Baton Rouge, La.
“Just to clear the air, I’m still committed to LSU,” Brennan wrote. “That is not changing.”
Ole Miss had been courting the St. Stanislaus High School (Bay Saint Louis, Miss.) product over the past year.
Brennan attended a Rebels camp last June, when notable programs across the country began to take notice of the passer.
Kentucky, Cincinnati, West Virginia, Wisconsin, Memphis and Vanderbilt all followed suit with offers to the nation’s No. 16 pro-style quarterback. LSU offered as well, which led to Brennan immediately committing late in April.
Ole Miss is the 17th school to offer Brennan, and the fourth from the SEC.
Although Brennan reaffirmed his commitment to the Tigers on Sunday night, expect the in-state power to put the full-court press on Brennan into the summer to try and lure him on campus.
LSU currently boasts one of the best quarterback commitment tandems in the Class of 2017 with Brennan and Lowell Narcisse, but Ole Miss has given its SEC West rival a reason to fear its position at this stage in the recruiting cycle.
