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 four-star 2019 verbal T commit Anthony Bradford was named the position group MVP at the Rivals 3 Stripe camp regional in Chicago over the weekend.

"The way Bradford moves at [6-foot-5, 320 pounds] is remarkable, and he handled two smaller, quicker defensive ends with ease during the one-on-one session (in camp)," Helmholdt writes. While his size would seem more of a fit for the interior of the line, Helmholdt passes along that LSU plans on starting him out at right tackle. His athleticism makes that possible. On the Rivals rankings board for the 2019 cycle, Bradford ranks as the No. 186 overall prospect in the class.

LSU four-star 2019 verbal G commit Kardell Thomas plans on utilizing his five official visits.

Thomas (6'4/328) remains very much in LSU's corner, but he'll be exploring his options before he shuts down his recruitment completely. He already took one of those official visits -- to USC -- earlier this month, with LSU (no surprise there) and Penn State also penciled in for such trips. As for his two remaining slots, Alabama, Miami, Oklahoma and Texas are all in play. Rivals ranks Thomas the No. 1 guard prospect in the 2019 class, No. 26 overall.

SEC Country's Alex Hickey believes that LSU redshirt junior QB Justin McMillan is the quarterback who is most likely to transfer off the LSU roster.

Hickey gives fellow signal-caller Myles Brennan a medium chance of leaving the Tigers, and Lowell Narcisse a low -- but variable -- odds of transferring from LSU. McMillan reportedly performed well during the spring, and Hickey believes that McMillan still has a chance of winning the job even with the arrival of Joe Burrow. "If he doesn’t get the job, he’d still have a year to play elsewhere after this season," writes Hickey. "But it would be understandable if one more year on the bench holds no appeal to him."

LSU officially announced the redshirt junior QB Joe Burrow has transferred to the school from Ohio State.

Burrow made the announcement on Friday that he'd be attending LSU, but it's now official with the school welcoming him on Twitter. Burrow will be immediately eligible to play as a graduate transfer, but he'll also have two years of eligibility remaining. The 6-foot-3, 216-pound signal-caller will be given a chance to winning the starting quarterback job, but he will have to beat out Myles Brennan, Lowell Narcisse and Joe McMillan to do so.

ESPN's Adam Rittenberg listed LSU redshirt junior Breiden DT Fehoko as one of the transfers to watch for in 2018.

Fehoko transferred to LSU in April of 2017, and the former five-star recruit is expected to play a big part of the Tiger defense this fall. "A defensive front that loses Arden Key and Christian LaCouture needs productive players to step up," writes Rittenberg. "Fehoko brings experience after starting two seasons for Texas Tech, but he'll need to be more productive in a superior league for LSU."

Ohio State redshirt junior QB Joe Burrow confirmed on Twitter that he is transferring to LSU.

The Cincinnati Enquirer's Tom Groeschen was first to report Burrow's transfer intent for Death Valley on Friday, with the Ohio State signal-caller tweeting confirmation a short time later. The 6-foot-3, 216-pounder will have two years eligibility remaining with LSU and will be battling it out with Myles Brennan, Lowell Narcisse and Joe McMillan for starting honors this summer.

The Cincinnati Enquirer's Tom Groeschen reports that Ohio State redshirt junior QB Joe Burrow is transferring to LSU.

Per Groeschen, Burrow's decision came down to Cincinnati or LSU. He visited North Carolina earlier this week, but the Tar Heels apparently failed to make the cut for the ultimate decision. The 6-foot-3, 216-pounder's choice of LSU makes complete sense, as the program's spring quarterbacks competition between Myles Brennan, Lowell Narcisse and Joe McMillan saw no clear frontrunner emerge. Even with the publicity surrounding this transfer, it's important to keep in mind that we saw very, very little of Burrow at Ohio State outside of occasional mop-up duty, so it should not automatically be assumed that he'll be a lock starter with his new team. We expect a competitive camp from all involved in what figures to be a adventuresome year for the program now that Leonard Fournette and Derrius Guice are no longer on campus to carry the offensive load.

Rivals' Sean Callahan reports that transferring Ohio State redshirt junior QB Joe Burrow will visit North Carolina this week.

Burrow reportedly checked out both Cincinnati and LSU last week. North Carolina, it would appear, is going to be the final stop on the redshirt junior's visitation tour. Per Callahan, he'll likely make a decision on a future home by the end of the week. At UNC, he would be competing with Chazz Surratt and Nathan Elliott for starting rights in the upcoming campaign. If a darkhorse is to jump up late in this race for Burrow's services, Wyoming, Arkansas and Arizona State would fit the bill. At this juncture, though, we expect him to land with one of LSU, Cincinnati or North Carolina. The former four-star recruit will have two years eligibility remaining with his program-to-be.

LSU received a verbal commitment from four-star 2019 T Anthony Bradford.

Bradford (6'5/320) took official visits to both Tennessee and LSU this spring, though neither trip was widely reported. The Muskegon, Michigan, native is something of an old soul and does not maintain an active presence on social media. Nor does he own a cell phone. A big, long tackle prospect who shows plenty of moxie on his feet when moving laterally, Bradford could potentially play either guard or right tackle with the Tigers after he puts pen to paper. His upside position will likely come on the interior of the line, though. Rivals ranks him as the No. 186 overall prospect in the 2019 class.

SEC Country's Alex Hickey reports that transferring Ohio State redshirt junior QB Joe Burrow will visit LSU this coming weekend, while Sports Illustrated's Bruce Feldman relays that he'll be visiting Cincinnati on Thursday.

LSU and Cincinnati were both teams linked to Burrow almost immediately upon his announcing an intent to transfer on Tuesday. The Tigers went through the spring with Myles Brennan, Lowell Narcisse and Joe McMillan battling it out in competition, but all indications are that the team is not close to settling on a starting quarterback. In what will be a potential hot-seat year for HC Ed Orgeron for the upcoming season, Burrow may well represent the safest option at this juncture. He didn't see the field much while at Ohio State, but played well when given spot opportunities. As for Cincinnati, Burrow is already well-acquainted with HC Luke Fickell, who previously served as defensive coordinator at OSU. Beyond those two programs, keep an eye on Wyoming, Arkansas and Arizona State.

Sports Illustrated's Andy Staples is reporting that LSU and Cincinnati have both been given permission to talk with transferring Ohio State redshirt junior QB Joe Burrow.

In addition, Rivals' Sean Callahan passes along that Wyoming, Arkansas and Arizona State are also showing early interest. A few programs Callahan is saying are not in the current mix? Florida and Nebraska. Burrow announced his intention to transfer from Ohio State as a graduate on Tuesday after failing to significantly push Dwayne Haskins for the starting lead this spring. He'll have two years eligibility remaining and will be able to play immediately this year as a graduate. We understand why both Florida and Nebraska -- who house young quarterbacks in Emory Jones and Adrian Martinez -- would be reticent to bring a bull into the developing quarterbacks room. Our early money's on LSU. The Tigers just went through an unsettled spring at signal-caller with Myles Brennan, Lowell Narcisse and Joe McMillan and beyond that, we view this year as a pivotal one for HC Ed Orgeron. Burrow would presumably bring some stability to the table.

Ohio State redshirt junior QB Joe Burrow will transfer as a graduate.

There have been whispers about a potential transfer from Burrow throughout the offseason, with OSU HC Urban Meyer indicating at the beginning of March that the staff would be in touch with him as to his standing on the depth chart at the close of spring practice. Reading between the tea leaves, Dwayne Haskins (who backed up J.T. Barrett last year) looks to be heading into the summer as presumptive starter for the Buckeyes. Burrow initially signed with Ohio State as a three-star recruit in the winter of 2015 and went on to complete 29-of-39 passes for 287 yards and a 2/0 TD/INT ratio in spare action while in the program. As for where he might be eyeing next, 247Sports' Chris Hummer floats Iowa State, Florida, Nebraska, UCLA (who earlier landed Wilton Speight from Michigan), Texas and LSU as possibilities.

An anonymous scout told Walter Football's Charlie Campbell that LSU junior LB Devin White has a chance to be similar to Hall Of Fame linebacker Ray Lewis.

"This kid could end up being similar to Ray Lewis," the scout told Campbell. "I'd take White over any of the linebackers this year. He's unbelievable. Unless he gets hurt or completely shuts it down to protect himself, he'll be the first linebacker drafted next year. He's the complete package." The scout says that White (6'1/.245) is among the best -- and maybe the best -- he's ever scouted at the position. Wow. White was the NCAA leader in tackles last year, and he also made 13.5 tackles for loss, including 4.5 sacks. He's a must-watch prospect going into the 2018 season.

Bears signed LSU CB Kevin Toliver.

Toliver (6’2/192) turned pro after spending three years in Baton Rouge as a part-time starter, all told spreading four tackles for loss, 16 pass breakups, and two interceptions across 31 games (18 starts). A disappointment as a former five-star recruit, Toliver never met expectations at LSU due to knee and shoulder injuries and a reported lack of maturity. Toliver is a talented project with elite size, but his history of underachievement is a significant red flag.
