The right fit: Mississippi quarterback Myles Brennan commits to LSU _lowres

CHRIS TODD THE (Biloxi Mississippi) SUN HERALD St. Stanislaus quarterback Myles Brennan committed to LSU on Saturday.


BAY ST. LOUIS, Miss. — Myles Brennan wasn’t kidding.

After returning home from visiting Oklahoma State earlier in the month, the quarterback from St. Stanislaus in Bay St. Louis, Mississippi, said he was going to commit when the match felt right.

Apparently LSU was the right fit. Brennan announced on Twitter on Saturday that committed to LSU. SSC coach Bill Conides said Brennan was on a visit when he committed.

The two-time Sun Herald Player of the Year has been one of the more prolific passers in the country during his prep career and has seen his stock rise. Brennan stood out at The Opening, held in New Orleans several weeks ago.

Brennan already has passed for 11,045 yards and 117 touchdowns in two seasons at SSC. He has also shown improved mobility and pocket awareness in the past two seasons.

The 6-foot-4, 180-pound quarterback recently visited Oklahoma State, although the Cowboys did not offer a scholarship. Brennan said after the visit that he expected LSU to visit Bay St. Louis during the spring season, and he hoped to make a commitment some time during the spring.

“Obviously as a quarterback, time shortens a lot,” he said after the OSU visit. “My time is broken down into two more months basically. At the quarterback position, if you don’t commit, there’s a chance you (will be passed over). I’m just waiting for spring to play out and for all the schools to come down and evaluate me. I feel like once spring is over. I’ll have a good idea.”

LSU offensive coordinator Cam Cameron reportedly visited SSC last week for the start of spring workouts.

Brennan committed to the Tigers over offers from Southern Miss, Memphis, Troy, South Alabama, California, Kentucky, West Virginia, Cincinnati, Wake Forest, Wisconsin, Indiana, Arkansas State, Louisiana-Lafayette, Texas-San Antonio and Vanderbilt.
