A college football analyst has made a bold prediction for LSU football quarterback Myles Brennan.
LSU football’s Myles Brennan probably won’t put up Joe Burrow like numbers in 2020, but he might not be that far off, at least according to one college football analyst.
Sonny Shipp, who covers the Tigers for Geaux247, made a bold prediction for Brennan in 2020.
Shipp believes Brennan is in for a huge year, recently saying that he expects the redshirt junior quarterback to put up the second best passing numbers in LSU history this upcoming season.
Burrow, obviously, holds the Tigers single season record for passing yards with 5,671.
Second on the list is Rohan Davey, who tossed for 3,347 yards in 2001.
(The gap between first and second place shows us just how good Burrow was last season.)
I have a feeling that Brennan is going to shock some folks in 2020. He’s going to have to deal with life in Burrow’s shadow no matter how good he is next season. But Brennan has the talent to put up historically great numbers at LSU.
And he has the talent around him to help him reach those numbers, too.
Throwing to Ja’Marr Chase, the best wide receiver in the country, will certainly make things a bit easier on Brennan. Having wide receiver Terrace Marshall Jr helps as well. Brennan will also have five-star 2020 signees Arik Gilbert and Kayshon Boutte, too.
It also helps that Tigers head coach Ed Orgeron has expressed confidence in Brennan, saying earlier this spring that he was “really impressed with the way he’s running the offense, really impressed with the way he’s changing the protections
Brennan is set up for success in 2020. No one is expecting him to be the best quarterback in the SEC next season, but I wouldn’t be shocked if he sets the standard in the conference in 2020.
While everyone is hyping up Georgia’s Jamie Newman, Alabama’s Mac Jones and Florida’s Kyle Trask, it could be Brennan that emerges as the best of the bunch.
