Coach Orgeron speaks on recent QB transfers

The quarterback saga continues at LSU. A four-man battle turned in to a two-horse race following the transfers of Justin McMillan and Lowell Narcisse.

Head coach Ed Orgeron discussed the departures on Wednesday:

“I don’t blame them, they see they’re not gonna start, they wanna leave, we gave them some grades, and there was a pecking order but there was no decision made…those guys decided they wanted to go and I support them and wish them the best.”

McMillan is a graduate from LSU and is eligible immediately to play elsewhere. Narcisse is a redshirt freshman and must sit out or go the JUCO route for a year before signing with a four-year university.

Orgeron said the team had plans to use Narcisse – whether he was the starter or not.

We had a wildcat package for him, we were gonna use him on short yardage and goalline… I think he’s a fantastic QB…he needs to get better at a couple things… but that package may be used for another tailback, we haven’t discussed that yet.”

Perhaps there is a silver lining. It’s a more streamlined competition now – Joe Burrow vs. Myles Brennan. Coach Orgeron did not give a time table on an announcement as the team prepares for the second team scrimmage on Saturday.
