The LSU Tigers open training camp in less than a week and they have just gotten some big news. Head coach Les Miles has reinstated the three players who were arrested for unauthorized entry into an inhabited dwelling.
According to College Football Talk, one of those three players was quarterback Anthony Jennings. He along with defensive lineman Maquedius Bain and defensive back Dwayne Thomas were all indefinitely suspended from the program following their arrest in mid-June.
Miles made the decision to reinstate the players Friday afternoon after the victim in the case asked for the charges against the players to be dropped. As of right now, no formal charges are currently filed against the three players.
In 2014, Jennings split time with true freshman Brandon Harris as a sophomore. Jennings threw for 1,611 yards, eleven touchdowns, and seven interceptions. He also rushed for 312 yards.
It will be interesting to see how camp goes for the Tigers now. Going into camp, Harris is believed to be pinned as the Tigers’ starter, but with Jennings back, there will surely be competition for the sophomore. I would also expect Jennings, Bain, and Thomas all to miss some playing time in the early stages of the season.
The Tigers open the season on September 5 when they host McNeese State.
What do you think? Should Jennings get the starting job? Is it Harris’s to lose? Should the players have even been reinstated? Let us know in the comments below!
