Crissy Froyd with LSU Wire, a USA Today Sports website ranked the SEC quarterbacks heading into the 2021 season and pegged the combo of LSU's Max Johnson and Myles Brennan at No. 4.

Ole Miss' Matt Corral got the top spot, followed by JT Daniels at Georgia, and Bryce Young and Alabama.

Here's what Froyd had to say about Johnson and Brennan.

The quarterback competition at LSU is very much considered wide open between Max Johnson, Myles Brennan and Garrett Nussmeier.

But Johnson seems to be the logical frontrunner, ending off last season with a 2-0 record as the team’s starter and taking the first reps at spring practice. Just a true freshman in 2020, Johnson showed an impressive amount of mobility with upside (and room to improve) as a passer.

He posted a stat line with a a 58.7% completion percentage, 1,069 passing yards, eight touchdowns and one interception. He also had 119 rushing yards on 54 carries with two touchdowns.

Based purely off of seniority, Brennan has the upper hand as 2021 will mark the fifth season of his college career. But even after all this time, we still don’t know exactly who Brennan is as a quarterback. Read more.

I still can't believe Missouri's QB lit us up like that. Jesus christ Bo Pelini should be put in prison for robbing LSU. What a bum for a DC.

Absurd that Young is #3.

Yes it is, forget the Saban factor. He hasn't taken a snap yet in a college football game!

Ridiculous when he hasn’t played at all. I think Bama is down this year.
