LSU Football quarterback Myles Brennan announced earlier this week that he’s entering the transfer portal.

Brennan signed with the Tigers during the 2017 recruiting cycle as a four-star recruit.

Unfortunately for Brennan, things never worked out in Baton Rouge — though it wasn’t necessarily his fault.

Brennan sat behind Joe Burrow for two seasons, before finally getting his shot in 2020. But after starting three games — and playing well — Brennan suffered an abdomen injury that sidelined him for the final seven games of the season.

Entering 2021, Brennan was expected to battle with Max Johnson for the starting job during fall camp. Brennan, however, suffered a broken arm in a freak accident just before the start of fall practice.

Where will Myles Brennan land in 2022?

While I’m sure LSU fans are sad to see Brennan leave the program, his decision is completely understandable. He stuck around when most quarterbacks would’ve bolted.

At this point, Brennan has no choice but to transfer if he hopes to achieve his goal of playing in the NFL. He can’t afford to sit on the bench for the Tigers in 2022.

So where will Brennan land?

I’d put my money on Ole Miss right now.

The Rebels are likely losing star quarterback Matt Corral after the season (he’ll almost certainly enter the 2022 NFL Draft). Brennan is from Mississippi and his older brother, Bo Brennan, was a walk-on at Ole Miss.

It would make a lot of sense for Brennan to transfer to Ole Miss to play for Lane Kiffin, a coach who has a great reputation when it comes to developing quarterbacks.

One year with Kiffin could be all Brennan needs to become a day one or day two NFL Draft selection.

(One big question is whether or not Kiffin will still be in Oxford next season, but for now, we have to assume he will be).

Next. Could another QB transfer from LSU?. dark

If Brennan transfers to Ole Miss it would mean LSU would face a former Tigers quarterback for the second straight season (former LSU quarterback TJ Finley transferred to Auburn after the 2020 season).
