The LSU Tigers watched their 2017 recruiting class take a big hit on Wednesday, with four-star quarterback Myles Brennan announcing he has decommitted from the program.
It initially appeared that Brennan, who is the No. 5 quarterback recruit in the nation and the No. 116 overall, was happy with the Tigers’ hiring of Ed Orgeron as head coach, but things changed in the following days.
The biggest reason for Brennan’s decision appears to be the status of offensive coordinator Cam Cameron, who recruited the signal-caller.
“Let me start by saying thank you to all the fans of the LSU Tigers. You have been unbelievably supportive of me and my family since the day I committed to LSU,” Breannan wrote in a statement on Twitter.
“I love the people of Louisiana and what that football team means to everyone that is a fan. I also want to personally thank Coach Les Miles and Coach Cam Cameron for believing in my abilities as a quarterback and offering me a scholorship to play at LSU; it’s truly one of the most special places in the world. It is however become very apparent to me that LSU is going through a transition and as a result I have decided to re-open my recruiting. With respect to the media outletsw across the country, please direct all questions to my head coach Bill Conides. Thank you again and God bless.”
It is believed that Orgeron will not retain Cameron on his staff.
Among the many offers Brennan holds are Oklahoma State, Ole Miss, West Virginia, and Wisconsin, so it will be interesting to see where he ultimately lands next.
