Brian Kelly reveals where Tigers’ QB Competition Stands Entering Fall Camp

LSU football practice is back. The Tigers kicked off fall camp this week with a quarterback battle lingering. Sixth-year senior Myles Brennan, Arizona State transfer Jayden Daniels, and redshirt freshman Garrett Nussmeier remain in competition less than a month before the 2022 season kick off on Sept. 4 against Florida State. First-year head coach Brian Kelly explained.

“We haven’t decided on the quarterback after today so that you can hold those questions,” he said in his opening statement after LSU’s first fall practice. “We’ll continue to build on the workload in practice. We’ll go inside (Friday), and then Saturday, we’ll head outside and begin to build the volume in practices.”

Kelly was asked how excited the quarterbacks are to now play to each’s strengths.

“They’re all anxious to show what they can do,” Kelly said. “They want that opportunity, so they’ve all prepared really hard. They’re all in great shape. Their mental preparation is so much further a long now that they know the playbook. They’re all anxious to get out there and showcase what they can do. Today was much more of the basic tenets of footwork, across the field progressions, those kind of things and you can see they’re past that and ready to move to the next level.”

Brennan missed the 2021 season with what was described by LSU as a “severe” arm injury. He only played in three games the prior season, 2020, due to an abdominal injury. Brennan completed 60.3% of his passes for 1,112 yards and 11 touchdowns to three interceptions in 2020.
