Thomas B. Shea-USA TODAY Sports
LSU junior quarterback Brandon Harris announced on Twitter Monday afternoon that he will be transferring out of the program.

Head coach Ed Orgeron has granted him a full release, according to his announcement.


Harris was LSU's starting quarterback in 2015 but struggled towards the end of the season. He was replaced in week 2 of the 2016 season by Danny Etling who held on to the job for the next 10 games.

It is unclear at this time where Harris is transferring to and whether or not he will graduate from LSU before moving on.

Can't blame him for wanting to transfer, even with a new coaching staff. The last time an LSU QB lost the starting job only to come back his senior year to lead the SEC in passing efficiency and help put LSU in the National Championship, he watched Jordan Jefferson take all the offensive snaps without crossing the 50 yard-line.

I hope he takes a look at LA Tech. They have done good things with transfer QBs, including Driskel from Florida who impressed enough that he is in the NFL now.

I am glad he is showing an interest in finishing his education. He always seemed like a bright kid. I wish him well for his Sr. year, then life.

No kidding Gump. I was speaking of him not choosing to pack up and just go home.

Yep probably best move for all. I like this better actually, gives more reps to Etling and Scott IMO the two with the best shot at starting. The two freshman will compete but they both need a redshirt IMO. If Scott can handle the offense mentally he can be dynamic in this new offense. GT
