Shortly after receiving an offer from Ole Miss nearly two weeks ago, LSU quarterback commit Myles Brennan tweeted he wasn't planning on doing any more interviews regarding schools other than LSU.
"I'm a committed Tiger!" he tweeted, among several other references to his offer.

The Rebels have most recently been in the news for several recruiting infractions, to which they have offered to forfeit 11 scholarships and pay over $150,000 in fines.
Brennan, a rising senior at St. Stanislaus High School in Mississippi, expanded on his decision Tuesday.
"I got more phone calls about the Ole Miss offer from reporters than I did when I originally committed to LSU," he said. "It's not meant to be offensive or anything, but a lot is going on, especially with starting summer workouts and finishing spring, and that was the last thing I needed.
"I was basically bombarded with the same questions, just by a different person every time."
Brennan, along with fellow LSU commit Lowell Narcise of St. James, La., will be competing at The Elite 11 Finals this week, being held in Los Angeles.
Brennan said he'd like to room with Narcisse to get better acquainted.
"I'm not really worried about how I compare to him. I just want to go out there and compete with him and build a relationship because I'm going to be with him for the next 4-5 years," Brennan said of Narcisse, who committed to LSU less than 10 days after Brennan. "I'm just excited and looking forward to it."
The Elite 11 Finals is an exclusive invitation-only competition. Quarterbacks are invited based on their performances at The Opening's regional competitions throughout the country.
