Who Is LSU’s Next Quarterback?

  • Pin It

After the departure of former Purdue quarterback Danny Etling, it looked as though that Ed Orgeron had a huge dilemma at quarterback for LSU. Elting’s performance at LSU the last couple of years pretty much kept things together with not only the quarterback situation, but also a huge coaching change in 2016. It has also helped Orgeron secure the coaching job officially and remove the interim tag. But now with a new starting quarterback, Orgeron’s second full season will be tested.

Myles Brennan was the only experienced quarterback left over from last season, playing in only six games. Brennan only threw for 182 yards and a touchdown along with two interceptions. Before Joe Burrow arrived, Orgeron has two freshman, two sophomore and one junior, counting Brennan. Lowell Narcisse was reshirted last season and Jordan Loving is a member of the 2018 class. Andre Sale transferred from Tennessee Tech and threw for 1,520 yards and eight touchdowns for the Golden Eagles.

Burrow transferred from Ohio State and is a junior and will be eligible to compete for the starting job. Burrow on the other played in only ten games for Urban Meyer for the Buckeyes throwing for only 287 yards and two touchdowns. Justin McMillan is also a junior who has rarely seen the field in his two seasons at LSU, playing in only two games and rushing for a measley two yards. This turns out to be down to three players who are most likely in the running for the starting job.

Brennan, Sale and Burrow are the likely contenders. With the most experience even out of a FCS based team, it seems that Sale has the bigger chance of landing the job after throwing more yards than the two combined in one season. This battle looks to be just as intriguing as the Alabama situation, but could be more serious than anyone anticipates.
