Myles Brennan the big and physical quarterback from LSU is stepping away from football. The pro style quarterback at LSU has decided to retire from the game. Brennan made this statement on Twitter, that he is hanging up his cleats.

Brennan has fought through injuries the past couple years at LSU, but this was still shocking. This leaves the door wide open for Jayden Daniels and sophomore Garrett Nussmeier to start. If I was a betting man, Jayden Daniels will get the nod. Daniels transferred to LSU in March, where he has been battling with three other signal callers for the starting job.

Daniels started as a true freshman for Herm Edwards’ ASU program and was terrific, with 17 touchdowns to just two interceptions for 2,943 passing yards, plus an additional 355 rushing yards and three more touchdowns. After four starts in the pandemic-affected 2020 season, Daniels regressed as a junior with an even touchdown-to-interception ratio of 10 apiece while completing 65.4% of his passes for 2,381 yards. He was much more dynamic as a runner, though, where his yards per attempt jumped from 2.8 as a freshman to 5.1 for 710 yards and six scores. Daniels has two years left technically.

Brennan continued to talk about his time with LSU.

“I am forever grateful for every opportunity I’ve been given, every obstacle I’ve overcome, and every second I’ve been a Tiger,” he said in the statement. “However, after five seasons, it is time for me to start a new chapter in my life.”

Brennan briefly entered the transfer portal last winter when former LSU coach Ed Orgeron was fired, but Brennan decided to return under Kelly.

I wish Brennan the best!
