LSU starting quarterback Max Johnson announced Tuesday night that he is entering his name into the NCAA transfer portal.

Johnson, a sophomore from Athens, Georgia, started in every game for the Tigers this season, passing for 2,815 yards, 27 touchdowns, and six interceptions.

With Johnson transferring, LSU has a huge question mark at the quarterback position for the Texas Bowl. Either true freshman Garrett Nussmeier will have to burn his redshirt or we might see a walk-on play vs. Kansas State.

As for the quarterback room next year, elite five-star passer Walker Howard is currently committed to the Tigers and fully onboard with new head coach Brian Kelly.

Makes no sense. He’s the starting quarterback. He has as good as a shot to start as anyone next year?

He told me he wasn't coming back because after five years you still can't spell his name right.

Good luck Max! You made the right decision!! Waiting for the portal name to mix with Walker Howard. I just have this feeling some major news is about to drop!! Early Christmas!!

I guess that answers a question about his brother at TE.

In a way I’m surprised and in the same breath I’m not. Best of luck wherever you decide to go and thanks for your efforts these last two years. It’s been a circus and a shame you had to go thru that.

Well when Kelly was recruiting Howard hard to ND and then becomes the coach here, Im sure he saw the potential writing on the wall.
