Les Miles says Brandon Harris should be ready for spring practices

The LSU Tigers are slated to, once again, be a competitor in the SEC during the 2016 season. They have one of the top recruiting classes in the country and an early Heisman Trophy favorite in running back Leonard Fournette.

One problem they have had the last few years and likely will going into the 2016 season is at the quarterback position. In 2014, neither Anthony Jennings or Brandon Harris played up to snuff for the Tigers.

The latter played better as the full-time starter in 2015 as Harris threw for 2,165 yards and 13 touchdowns while rushing for 226 yards and four scores. He will likely come into the spring practices as the starter and, luckily for the Tigers, he will be ready to go when they take the field in March.

Harris had hernia surgery in early January and that was expected to keep him out for up to eight weeks. LSU head coach Les Miles gave an update saying that he is on track to be on the field for practices on March 7.

Right now, Harris is slated to compete with Jennings, senior Brad Kragthorpe, and three-star signee Lindsey Scott for the starting job.
