Could LSU start Freshman Branon Harris

Could a Freshman actually start for Les Miles and his LSU Team?  If you ask incoming signal caller Brandon Harris, coach Miles should if that gave the Tigers the best chance to win.

Harris was in Shreveport, Louisiana for former LSU Tigers running back Jacob Hester’s camp and shared his thoughts on the QB battle which includes sophomore Anthony Jennings for the top spot with KTBS‘ Tatum Everett. 

Harris stated,

“I want him to put who he feels like gives us the best chance to win the national championship on the field.  If that’s me, I’m going to take it and take full advantage of it, be thankful for the opportunity and play as hard as I can. If it’s Anthony, I’m going to be very supportive of him. That’s how you handle the situation. Competition brings out the best in everybody, it doesn’t build enemies.” 

“I want to continue to mature and be ready whenever my number is called.”

Jacob Hester shared when speaking of Harris,

“If Brandon is ready, I don’t see why not”

Everyone of these athletes should feel as if they are the best option but I love his attitude to do what was best for the program.  Very mature for the young man and yet I sense a burning desire to be the man.  LSU may indeed be in a great situation going forward.
