Prominent LSU Quarterback Reportedly 'Walking Away' From Football

LSU Football: Tigers' 2021 Schedule Analysis

We have breaking news out of Baton Rouge. According to a report, a prominent LSU quarterback is "walking away from football." That player is none other than Myles Brennan. 

Brennan has reportedly been informed he's lost the Tigers' starting quarterback competition. He had been competing against Arizona State transfer Jayden Daniels and Garrett Nussmeier. 

Instead of entering the transfer portal for a fresh opportunity, Brennan is hanging up his cleats. The former four-star quarterback is reportedly retiring from football. A stunning outcome, to say the least. 

"BREAKING: LSU QB Myles Brennan is walking away from football, a source has told me. Brennan was informed that he will not be the starting Quarterback this fall," said Kristian Garic.

In four seasons in Baton Rouge, Myles Brennan had 1,712 yards passing and 13 touchdowns with six picks. He battled each and every year for the Tigers' starting quarterback role but could never quite win the job. 

Brennan had originally entered his name into the transfer portal late last year, but Brian Kelly convinced him to stay and battle to be the starting quarterback. Kelly then went out and brought in Arizona State transfer Jayden Daniels, who will likely win the gig. 

Brennan now wants to move on and move forward with the next chapter of his life.
