Brandon Harris is an NBA fan, so, naturally, he watched the NBA finals.
“One thing I did take away from the finals,” Harris said, “LeBron (James) was telling his guys, ‘Be a star in your role, wherever that’s at.’
“Whether that’s me trying to help the quarterbacks … Regardless of if I’m trying to be the leader of the team, we’ve still got young quarterbacks in the room, whether that be Lindsey Scott, who’s coming in and he’s a freshman. We’re trying to help him. All of the quarterbacks in the room is trying to help everybody.”
He’ll take a brief break from LSU’s player-run 7-on-7 workouts to spend time mentoring high school quarterbacks then competing with the college guys Saturday at the 21st annual event.
- Naturally, Harris has high expectations for a team that returns 18 of 22 starters and an offense equipped with a Heisman hopeful at running back, tall, athletic receivers and an offensive line with a good chunk of experience (not to mention an upperclassman at QB for the first time since 2013).
- Many wonder if RB Leonard Fournette can replicate the record-breaking performance of last season. The New Orleans native broke LSU single-season records for yards (1,935) and touchdowns (22). Harris has no doubts.
- Harris reiterated what we’ve written about at length during this spring: new receivers coach Dameyune Craig is helping the quarterback and offering receivers a window into a quarterback’s mind.
He’s really come in and helped our receivers, and now they’ve got an understanding of ‘This is why Brandon throws this ball in this coverage.’”
