LSU quarterback Anthony Jennings was featured today on Chris Low's Offseason Spotlight on ESPN.com.

Jennings got his first chance to lead the team last year when he replaced starter Zach Mettenberger with an knee injury (ACL) in the fourth quarter of the season-finale win against Arkansas. Jennings and the LSU offense put together a 99-yard drive that was capped off with a 49-yard touchdown pass to Travin Dural to put the Tigers ahead with 1:15 left in the game.

Jennings first start of the season was on January 1st in the Outback Bowl vs. Iowa where he had a rushing touchdown, 82 yards passing, and an interception. The Tigers won 21-14.

Here is what Chris Low had to say about Jennings in his "Offseason Spotlight"...
quote:

The skinny: Now that Mettenberger is gone, the Tigers are searching for their quarterback of the future, and Jennings is currently No. 1 on that list. He wasn't perfect during his time on the field in 2013, but he guided the Tigers well enough for them to pull out two close wins at the end of the season. With LSU's offense shifting to accommodate a more dual-threat quarterback, Jennings should feel comfortable running things under center this spring. While he didn't show tendencies to be a run-first quarterback during his limited time on the field last season, Jennings can make plays with his feet if needed. What he needs to focus on is his accuracy and decision-making, which will come with more reps and more time with his receivers, a group that will look totally different with the loss of Jarvis Landry and Odell Beckham Jr. to the NFL draft. The athletic Jennings can now call LSU his team, but it's not like he won't have competition.
