Who will be LSU’s quarterback?
Yes, it’s the question everyone wants to be answered, including Kelly, but it’ll be a battle deep into fall camp. The Tigers have three options: sixth-year senior Myles Brennan, Arizona State transfer Jayden Daniels, and redshirt freshman Garrett Nussmeier.
But what is the plan for the rest of the summer heading into camp? How will this coaching staff divide reps? Each quarterback provides a different skill set; how does the playbook differ for each of the three?
The Tigers quarterback competition will take some time to work itself out, but getting a greater perspective from Kelly along with sophomore wide receiver Jack Bech will be a piece that goes a long way. Bech is almost too honest with the media, so it will be interesting to see how he feels about the quarterback battle.
Is depth an issue? How will the fresh faces within this program mesh?
Kelly took over an LSU program that had an incredibly thin roster. With less than 40 scholarship players suiting up for the Texas Bowl, it showed how brutal of a place this roster was in.
Insert Kelly, who came into a tricky spot and began rebuilding this roster to compete in the SEC. Signing 15 transfers to attack positions of need, Kelly and his staff brought in many players to round out a team full of newbies. With a mix of his 2022 high school and transfer portal classes, it’s safe to say there are a number of fresh faces within this LSU program.
