New LSU offensive coordinator Jake Peetz, who will also serve as the Tigers QB coach, gave his assessment on all of LSU's quarterback during his introductory press conference on Wednesday.
The former Carolina Panthers quarterback coach began his comments with Max Johnson and wrapped up with incoming freshman Garrett Nussmeier.
"I do feel like all these guys can play in any style of offense that we want them to play in," Peetz said.
"Max (Johnson) is a guy that can move, he has some mobility to him. But if you look at his calmness and his footwork in the pocket, this guy can play pro-style football now. This guy can play in the pocket, he can sling it. We can do some different things moving it."
"And I would say the same thing for (Myles) Brennan. He can move the pocket. He has very good balance. He's a guy that can sling it well, I really like his lower half."
"And then you have TJ (Finley). TJ is a big man. We were talking earlier today, seeing him for the first time reminded me a lot of when I first came to Carolina and seeing Cam Newton. These are big men. He's extremely talented. He's a guy that can flick the wrist and the ball blows up off of it. He's a guy that I think that you may not categorize him as a guy that can run and escape the pocket, but there are great examples on film where he's able to move up and over. And the thing about TJ... is that when he escapes, he can attack you at every level of the field. He's like Steph Curry hitting three's from the parking lot with where he can reach you with his arm."
"And then we have Garrett Nussmeier. He tore up 6A Football in the state of Texas. He's a guy that is extremely competitive just like all these guys are extremely competitive. But he's a guy that I'm excited to see how he can move out of the pocket, in the pocket."
"All these kids, there is not a limiting factor to their games, saying 'well we can't play this style of football'. Either way, whoever the quarterback, and whenever it is that they play... we are going to play to their strengths."
