Sources within the LSU program say sophomore Brandon Harris should win the starting QB job and ESPN predicts he'll do exactly that.
He's fighting Anthony Jennings for it. LSU HC Les Miles pursed Everett Golson and Braxton Miller as grad transfers, so you know he isn't sold on either. Harris is the more gifted of the two, but his maturity has been consistently questioned, most notably by his coach. "He’s going to be a key piece," Miles said. "The guy can really throw it. It’s all about maturity." Aug 16 - 7:49 PM

LSU sophomore Brandon Harris is surpassing junior Anthony Jennings for the school's starting QB job, according to beat writer James Smith.

Smith's sources stated Harris "has progressed on the field and is lightyears ahead of where he was last season," adding the quarterback "has exhibited a grasp of the offense throughout fall camp." Jennings' offseason arrest certainly did not help the situation. Finally, the article points out Harris could solely hold the job, with Jennings not sharing time and only acting as the No. 2 quarterback.

Sophomore Brandon Harris could be passing junior Anthony Jennings as LSU's No. 1 QB.

Jennings is currently on suspension, but head coach Les Miles seemed very optimistic he will return. Harris started one game last season but played in a couple of others, completing 25 of 45 attempts, including two interceptions, six touchdowns and 452 yards. Jennings' high school coach implored him to transfer following the season, but Harris stuck around and might be rewarded for it.

David Feaster, the high school coach of LSU QB freshman Brandon Harris, advised the signal-caller to "please get out of" Baton Rouge.

"Please get out of there," Feaster said he told Harris. "I wanted him to go to junior college. Go to a junior college, and because he’s a qualifier, he can just be there one year, leave at the midterm and restart the recruiting process all over again." Feaster then took a veiled shot at HC Les Miles. "You’ve got the worst passing game in the country, and the best quarterback in the country sitting on the bench," Feaster said. "Why don’t we even try him against Arkansas? He almost saved you against Mississippi State, did save you against New Mexico State. Why don’t we even give him a shot in some of these other games we can’t get a first down?" The New Orleans Times-Picayune reported Harris' inactivity over the season's second half stemmed from speculation that he lacked "dedication to studying tape and the playbook." Feaster called those reports bogus, but did say later that Harris is "right and I’m wrong" about returning.

Fox Sports' Bruce Feldman calls LSU freshman Brandon Harris a "precocious kid with a fantastic arm."

"Very curious how LSU FR Brandon Harris does at AUB. Precocious kid with a fantastic arm. Also cool to see a John Wooden quote in Twitter bio," Feldman tweeted. The true freshman had an excellent outing against New Mexico State, as he completed 11-of-14 passes for 178 yards with three touchdowns and no interceptions, rushing five times for 36 yards and two touchdowns.

LSU freshman Brandon Harris will start at QB for the Tigers against Auburn.

In his first extended playing time, Harris completed 11 of 14 attempts for 178 yards and three touchdowns against New Mexico State. Anthony Jennings had been seeing starters snaps for LSU. Auburn is obviously a difficult debut game from Harris, but he has flashed plenty of ability.

LSU signed quarterback recruit Brandon Harris to a financial-aid agreement.

Harris is one of the first players to utilize this new NCAA rule. Doing so allows Harris to secure his scholarship months before he would have otherwise. Harris didn't sign a letter of intent. His agreement forces LSU to honor his scholarship offer, but doesn't require Harris to ultimately sign with the Tigers if he changes his mind. Harris, the No. 48 overall recruit in the ESPN 300, verbally committed to LSU over the summer. The Bossier City, La. product -- Louisiana's best quarterback prospect since Ryan Perrilloux inked with LSU in 2005 -- chose the home-state Tigers over Ohio State, Auburn and Baylor.

ESPN 300 No. 48 overall recruit QB Brandon Harris committed to LSU last week.

The Bossier City, La. product -- Louisiana's best quarterback prospect since Ryan Perrilloux inked with LSU in 2005 -- chose the home-state Tigers over Ohio State, Auburn and Baylor. Harris said he will enroll for the spring semester in hopes of competing with Rob Bolden, Stephen Rivers, Anthony Jennings and Hayden Rettig for playing time in 2014.
