The LSU Tigers’ recent transition may have played a big factor in fazing 2017 quarterback Myles Brennan, because he de-committed from the program on Wednesday afternoon. He tweeted out his rescind and thanked the former coaching staff for recruiting him before he touched on LSU’s transitioning phase.

Brennan is a 6-3, 180-pound pro-style quarterback, who hails from Bay Saint Louis, Mississippi (St Stanislaus). 247Sports tabs him as a four-star prospect, the No. 198 player nationally, the No. 10 pro-style quarterback and the No. 4 athlete in the state of Mississippi.
As a three-year starter, Brennan got onto the national map as early as his sophomore year. He had arguably his best season as he completed 409 of his 582 passing attempts for 5,797 and 64 touchdowns. Over his prep school career, Brennan has amassed over 15,000 yards through the air and a grand total of 165 passing touchdowns.
There should be a number of suitors hot on Brennan’s trail now that his recruitment process has cracked back open. He has already fielded offers from 18 programs and there are a couple of specific programs that are sticking out. A majority of the predictions peg Brennan’s college education to take place at in-state Ole Miss while others tag Oklahoma State and Cal as dark horses.
The pro-style quarterback would have been a great get, but LSU is still putting in work with the current recruiting cycle. Newly appointed head coach Ed Orgeron surely inherited a star-studded recruiting class with more than 10 players ranked as four or five-star prospects. That is currently good for No. 5 in the nation.
