LSU sophomore QB Myles Brennan (undisclosed injury) was a participant int the team's practice session Wednesday.
As reported Tuesday, the expectation was that the 6-foot-5 sophomore would be able to practice Wednesday. The question now is whether or not Brennan is able to practice the remainder of the week leading into the fifth-ranked Tigers' matchup with Ole Miss Sept. 29. If he can LSU will have a "safety net" in case starter Joe Burrow gets injured. Sep 26 - 6:46 PM

LSU sophomore QB Myles Brennan (undisclosed) did not practice on Tuesday.

Move along, nothing to see, here. The expectation in the bayou is that Brennan will practice on Wednesday as usual. His sitting on Tuesday was merely a precautionary measure. The 6-foot-5, 183-pounder will continue to work as backup to Joe Burrow moving forward, assuming there's not more to this injury than would currently appear.

Owen Brennan, the father of LSU sophomore QB Myles Brennan, said that his son remains "in a very, very good position to compete for the starting job" even after the team's addition of Ohio State QB Joe Burrow.

"He's going to compete and feels very comfortable with where his position is right now," said the elder Brennan of his son's place with the Tigers. Burrow transferred over to LSU earlier this month. While it's not uncommon for parents to hang the threat of transfer over a given program's head when playing time is potentially in jeopardy, Mr. Brennan did not even vaguely allude to his son considering a move. Brennan, Burrow, Lowell Narcisse and Justin McMillan will all be battling it out for starting honors in August camp.

LSU sophomore QB Myles Brennan is eating 6-7 meals a day to gain weight to prepare for the season.

One of the concerns with Brennan is his frame, as he looks much skinnier than the listed 6-foot-4, 193-pounds he's listed at. In order to bulk up, he's packing on the calories in hopes of getting up to 215-220 pounds. Considering the pass-rushers that play in the SEC, it certainly would bode well for him to get stronger. We're jealous of the task, too. Brennan is the clear-cut favorite to end up the starting quarterback for the Tigers in 2018.
Apr 10 - 8:06 PM

LSU sophomore QB Myles Brennan completed 10-of-15 passes for 93 yards with a touchdown and an interception in Saturday's spring scrimmage.

Those numbers aren't great, but when you compared them to the other two quarterbacks who went 6-for-22 for 85 yards, they're downright fantastic. Brennan is clearly the favorite to win the starting job, and the 6-foot-4, 193-pound quarterback offers some rare upside at the position for a school that has struggled to provide quality quarterback play over the past few years.
Apr 7 - 2:52 PM

LSU HC Ed Orgeron expressed optimism in the team's quarterbacks, saying, "I do believe LSU is going to have the quarterback we've been looking for, for a long time."

We'll believe it when we see it, Coach O, but at the very least, the Tigers will be trying something new this year now that competent game manager Danny Etling has finally moved on. The players in this race will be sophomore Myles Brennan, redshirt sophomore Lowell Narcisse and junior Justin McMillan. We view Brennan and Narcisse as the two young men to keep an eye on, here, with Brennan expected to receive the initial work with the first team when spring practice starts on Sunday.

LSU OC Steve Ensminger said that sophomore QB Myles Brennan will open spring practice taking reps with the first-team offense.

While Ensminger said that Brennan will receive the initial first-team snaps with the team this spring, this is far from an open/shut job for the sophomore. Lowell Narcisse and Justin McMillan should both receive their fair share of reps, too, and the competition may well stretch into August unless somebody jumps up early. For his part, the 6-foot-4, 193-pound Brennan completed 14-of-24 passes for 182 yards, a touchdown and two interceptions in limited opportunities as a true freshman during the 2017 campaign. He was a four-star recruit coming out of high school last winter.
Feb 9 - 2:12 PM

LSU HC Ed Orgeron indicated that he could use two quarterbacks in 2018.

"We could (use two guys), it could happen," Ed Orgeron said. "I would like one to be the starter. Obviously if Myles [Brennan] is the starter, there won't be a lot of quarterback runs. It'll be stuff conducive to what he can do. If Lowell [Narcisse] is the starter - or Justin [McMillan], we'll give him a chance - it'll be the same passing game, it'll just be more quarterback runs." Per Ross Dellenger of the Baton Rouge Advocate, Brennan has the early edge but "this will be a wide-open competition." New OC Steve Ensminger wants to spread the field more and use more tempo, so whoever wins this job could conceivably post stronger numbers than we're used to seeing out of LSU quarterbacks.
Jan 18 - 2:28 PM

LSU HC Ed Orgeron said that freshman QB Myles Brennan will see more time going forward as a backup to senior QB Danny Etling.

"Danny is our starter. I’m not saying that couldn’t happen (that Myles Brennan becomes the starter)," Orgeron said. "We’re not putting Myles in to take over Danny’s spot. We’re giving him reps in case he has to play. We (didn’t) have a second-team quarterback with reps in a game. Now, Myles has been that guy." It sounds nice, but Etling has struggled to move the football for LSU and is completing under 60 percent of his passes. If LSU struggles to score points, the crowd will beginning chanting for Brennan's name in Death Valley.

LSU HC Ed Orgeron said that freshman QB Myles Brennan will continue to see work in a rotation with senior QB Danny Etling.

Etling remains the starter, here, but Orgeron spoke very highly of Brennan, saying, "There are some things that Myles does better than Danny because of the quarterback that he is. Myles has a very quick release. That's what you're seeing. He can see the field very fast and make decisions." The 6-foot-4, 193-pound Brennan played in this past weekend's win over Syracuse, when he completed 4-of-6 passes for 75 yards and an interception. While the Tigers will continue to roll with Etling as starter for the time being, we would not be surprised to see Brennan -- a four-star recruit for the past cycle -- take over that job as the season unfolds, particularly if LSU takes a couple more losses.

LSU HC Ed Orgeron wants to find playing time for LSU freshman QB Myles Brennan "in the next couple of games."

"We're going to give Myles more reps," Orgeron said on Monday. "See if he can play in the next couple of games." Tigers starting QB Danny Etling went 13-of-29 for 137 yards in Saturday's embarrassing 30-point loss to Mississippi State. Brennan, a top-125 overall recruit in this past cycle, is viewed as the quarterback of the future. If Etling's struggles continue -- which would be no great surprise -- LSU may turn the offense over to Brennan earlier than expected.

Ross Dellenger of the Baton Rouge Advocate posits that LSU freshman QB Myles Brennan is the only real challenger to knock off Danny Etling for the starting job.

Brennan is more talented than Justin McMillan and Lindsey Scott, and his fellow four-star signee Lowell Narcisse is too raw to play early. That leaves Brennan as the only real threat to steal Etling's gig. Brennan didn't have an opportunity to compete in the spring because he didn't enroll early. We install Etling as the heavy favorite to keep his job. With Ed Orgeron beginning his first full season and new OC Matt Canada coming over from Pittsburgh, the Tigers, all things equal, figure to prefer a steady veteran hand under center in this transition year.

ESPN's Edward Aschoff believes that LSU freshman QB Myles Brennan has a legitimate shot to push Danny Etling for the starting job in August camp.

Brennan is just arriving on campus now, so he will need to make a quick acclimation if he realistically wants to challenge Etling, but Aschoff sees the 6-foot-4, 172-pounder as potentially the best fit in OC Matt Canada's offense. "Brennan was one of the top pro-style passers in the 2017 class, and he will get every chance to win the starting spot," the analyst writes. Brennan offers elite fundamentals and a strong pocket presence, though he will need to add bulk to his frame, particularly given the rough-and-tumble conference he is about to enter.

Former Heisman Trophy winner Charlie Ward noted that LSU four-star 2017 verbal QB commit Myles Brennan "has all the fundamentals."

Ward worked with Brennan during the practice week leading up to this past weekend's Under Armour All-America Game. Said the former FSU gunslinger, "He’s slender built and he’ll improve in that area once he gets to college. He has all the fundamentals, pocket presence and knowing where to go with the football. He’s got good mobility so for me, he’s not been a big surprise, but I didn’t know much about him." Ward's biggest criticism came in terms of the 6-foot-4, 172-pounder's strength drawbacks at this stage of his development. "That’s mainly where all his issues are right now because when you need that short step throw, that’s where his issues are getting it to where he wants to get it to," Ward said. Brennan ranks as the No 116 overall prospect for the 2017 cycle by ESPN 300's metrics.

LSU received a second verbal pledge from four-star 2017 QB commit Myles Brennan.

The Tigers may well have dodged a bullet here, as Brennan -- a longtime LSU commit -- had reopened his recruitment due to concerns about LSU's offensive schemes and their wooing of fellow quarterback recruit Tua Tagovailoa. The 6-foot-4, 172-pound Brennan spoke with new OC Matt Canada on Wednesday, though, and subsequently took to Twitter on Thursday to lock in a commitment to LSU once more. With QB Lowell Narcisse decommitting from LSU earlier this month, Brennan (Scout's No. 257 overall recruit for 2017, ESPN 300's No. 116) stands as a crucial piece for HC Ed Orgeron, who has the tall task of keeping the recruiting class together even as he continues to build his coaching staff.
