BAY SAINT LOUIS, Miss. — Myles Brennan represents LSU’s future at quarterback.
That means that on and off the field, he always has to be aware of the situation. In this weekend’s case, it meant a change at head coach.
Brennan, the Tigers’ 3-star pro-style commit, spent Sunday meeting with St. Stanislaus High (Bay St. Louis, Miss.) coach Bill Conides preparing for a potential change at head coach after what transpired in the final moments at Auburn. They were correct, but had a game plan.
“It’s been crazy,” Brennan admitted to SEC Country. “Certain colleges have been contacting me, but I’m still committed. I can’t predict the future or who will come or what happen in the next eight games, but after I talked to Coach O (Ed Orgeron) and Coach (Steve) Ensminger, I think things are going to be positive. I have to wait and see how it plays out, but it hasn’t affected my recruitment that much.”
Ole Miss, Mississippi State and Oklahoma State all contacted Brennan soon after the news that Miles and offensive coordinator Cam Cameron were out at LSU, and all gauged the quarterback’s interest.
They were all turned down.
The 6-foot-3, 180-pounder remains firm in his pledge to LSU and is keeping a close eye on what the Tigers do offensively Saturday night against Missouri. Brennan will make a game-time decision whether to attend or not, but is anxious to see what changes are in store.
“I had more of a relationship with Coach Les and Coach Cam — those were my main two guys in the process — but they (Orgeron and Ensminger) said it’s not going to affect the team,” Brennan said. “They are going to come in and try to change the offense to be successful. They said that come Saturday, I’d be excited about playing in that offense and I’m looking forward to seeing what they have in store.”
Brennan is also paying attention to who LSU’s next coach will be.
He understands Orgeron is auditioning for the full-time job, but has also heard the rumors of Florida State’s Jimbo Fisher and Houston’s Tom Herman. Brennan doesn’t have a relationship with either of those coaches, but reminded SEC Country that he’s committed to LSU — not a coach.
In other words, it would take a complete curveball for Brennan to re-think his commitment.
“I feel like I’m a pro-style pocket passer, so there would have to be a specific offense like a triple-option or Wing-T, something crazy, because I feel like I’d fit most offenses,” he said. “I’m committed to LSU and those coaches, but my 100-percent commitment wasn’t to just (Miles and Cameron). It was to the school, my relationship with LSU and the football program. Whatever coach is going to come in is going to be a good one. I’m excited and something drastic would have to happen for me to leave LSU, and I don’t plan on that happening.”
