With the announcement that LSU redshirt freshman Lindsey Scott of Zachary is transferring, here's a look at LSU's recent, checkered quarterback history.

LSU has signed 18 quarterbacks in the previous 12 signing classes, excluding the most recent class. (The 2017 signing class included quarterbacks Myles Brennan of Mississippi and Lowell Narcisse of St. James.)

Of the 18, just three completed their careers at LSU at the quarterback position. Two remain on the team: Danny Etling and Justin McMillan. Others were dismissed, transferred or switched positions. Eight never played a single down at LSU.
