Don't think he would. LSU seems to favor QB's with more height. QB's 6'1" and under don't stir much interest with this coaching staff. He would probably be swithced to DB or WR. As an aside, he's listed at 6'1" which I find hard to believe.
Stupid. Someone tell Drew Brees he's too short to play QB.

I think he'd be one of our RBs. He'd get maybe 10 carries a game at first and rotate in and out. Then coach Miles would declare that he doesn't know how to block, so he can't be in too many snaps. There'd be the suggestion that he isn't tough enough of putting in enough work.
Then, he'd get about 2-3 carries for a few years, just so that nobody can complain that he didn't get a shot. He'd be a regular on special teams though.
He'd make the most of those 2-3 carries, breaking a few big ones. But he wouldn't be in the 'scheme' of pounding the football 2-3 yards at a time. Les doesn't like big gains you know.
Finally, when we play our big games (Bama, UF) you won't even see him on TV. Gone, forgotten, not even considered against the big boys. Riding the bench. Of course Les would then comment how great a player he was and how his 4 years were not a waste at all and how he has great character.
He'd be forgotten and would then declare for the draft. Get drafted 4/5th round and become a starting NFL qb.
