Quarterback is regularly the most sought-after position in LSU’s recruiting classes, and the Tigers landed one over the weekend.
Three-star Mississippi quarterback Myles Brennan pledged to LSU in a decision that came down to fit and comfort level.
The 6-foot-3, 180-pound pro-style prospect was able to check off on the Tigers in both pivotal departments.
“The quarterback position is different,” Brennan told SEC Country. “I knew that I wanted to commit. It was a real special moment and I felt comfortable. I just knew it was the place I wanted to be and the place that felt like home and family. I love it there.”
Brennan spent Saturday in Baton Rouge, La., for his third unofficial visit.
Previously, the St. Stanislaus High School (Bay Saint Louis, Miss.) took in the Florida game at Tigers Stadium and Junior Day in late February.
Yet again, Brennan felt different when he arrived in The Boot.
“I love it,” Brennan said of LSU’s campus. “It is indescribable. It will be a real special experience (playing there).”
Brennan’s commitment to Louisiana is a homecoming of sorts. The three-star prospect was born in New Orleans, so continuing his football career in Baton Rouge, La., is fitting.
That, in addition to LSU offensive coordinator Cam Cameron and Co. creating a unique environment provided Brennan with the family-like atmosphere he was seeking.
“We have just become so close throughout the visits and we have done family events together with Coach (Les) Miles,” Brennan explained. “Since I was born in New Orleans, it’s like my hometown.”
LSU is widely expected to land a pair of quarterbacks in its 2017 class. Brennan emerged as a major target after three-star dual-threat prospect Malik Cunningham committed to Louisville during the Tigers’ spring game last weekend.
In-state dual-threat prospect Lowell Narcisse remains LSU’s most coveted quarterback target, but Brennan remains high on his fit at the school.
Brennan is rated as the nation’s No. 28 pro-style signal-caller, and despite LSU courting dual-threat prospects, the New Orleans native believes he would seamlessly transition to the Tigers’ evolving offense.
“I feel like I fit in perfectly,” Brennan said. “It’s exactly what I am looking for, and I’m excited. He (Cameron) said it’s going to be very explosive and I fit in really well, and he’s excited to have someone like me to be in there for the new offense.”
