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. Sep 28 - 9:29 PM

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.

LSU four-star 2017 QB commit Myles Brennan was selected to participate in Elite 11.

"I thought he had a great weekend," said NFL analyst and former Tampa Bay Buccaneer quarterback Trent Dilfer, the head coach of the Elite 11 staff. "I didn’t know much about Myles outside of his highlight film because I wasn’t at his (New Orleans) regional. He’s a super impressive kid. We always try to do these comparisons now because we have kind of a large sample size of guys playing college football and in the NFL. He has Goff-like qualities. The look is kind of similar and the frame is kind of similar, but he’s got more twitch than Jared (Goff)." For a current collegiate example, Dilfer tossed out Cal's Davis Webb. "He’s a skinny kid who has exceptional feet, and nobody knows he has exceptional feet until you put him in a setting with everyone else," Dilfer said. Brennan is the No. 17 pro-style passer in the 247Sports Composite.
