Steve Lassan of Athlon Sports came up with a list of five first-year starting quarterbacks who could win a national title in 2014 and LSU true freshman Brandon Harris made the list. Check it out:

1. Jacob Coker - Alabama
2. Trevor Knight - Oklahoma
3. Hutson Mason - Georgia
4. Dylan Thompson - South Carolina
5. Brandon Harris - LSU

5. LSU – Brandon Harris
We list Harris as the starter here, but sophomore Anthony Jennings finished spring with an edge for the No. 1 job. Whether it’s Jennings or Harris taking the first snap against Wisconsin, LSU will have a first-year starter under center. Jennings led the Tigers’ comeback against Arkansas after Zach Mettenberger was injured, finishing 4 of 7 for 76 yards and one score. Jennings started the bowl victory over Iowa and completed just 7 of 19 throws for 82 yards and one pick. As we mentioned under Oklahoma’s Trevor Knight, we have to be careful to put too much stock in bowl games, so it’s unfair to judge Jennings’ potential based on that performance. Harris ranked as the No. 75 prospect and the No. 3 dual-threat quarterback in the 247Sports 2014 Composite rankings. The Louisiana native enrolled in time to compete in spring practice and threw for 195 yards and three touchdowns in the Purple vs. White game. LSU will have a strong rushing attack and offensive line once again, which should allow Les Miles and coordinator Cam Cameron to ease their young quarterbacks into the season. There’s always plenty of talent in Baton Rouge. How quickly can the Tigers develop and find stability at quarterback?
Expect the quarterback competition between Jennings and Harris to heat up as we get closer to the season.

I wonder what number we are of teams that could go into the shitter because they are a complete clusterfrick at the QB position?

Les Miles has lost control over who will be the best first year starting quarterback in the nation.

Jennings will start, and if he doesn't make big mistakes, will continue to start.

maybe the writer of this articles knows more than the coaches because they didn't list a starter at QB...
