LSU quarterback Anthony Jennings is expected to transfer to another program after graduating from LSU this summer, according to a statement on LSU’s official athletics website.
A former four-star talent from the Atlanta area, Jennings had a 9-4 record as the Tigers’ starting quarterback and will leave Baton Rouge without having ever really panned out. Despite his potential, he only completed 48.4 percent of his passes for 1,792 yards and 12 interceptions. Last season, Jennings lost the starting quarterback’s job to teammate Brandon Harris. LSU ended up going 9-3 (5-3 SEC) and beat Texas Tech in the Texas Bowl.
“Anthony did a lot of really good things for our program,” Tigers coach Les Miles said. “As a freshman, he came in for an injured Zach Mettenberger and led us to a last-minute win over Arkansas and then he helped us to eight wins the following year as a sophomore. This is an opportunity for Anthony to put himself in a position to help another team have success. We wish him nothing but good fortune in the future and we appreciate all that he did while he was part of our program.”
LSU will now likely turn to either Harris or Brad Kragthorpe at quarterback, though it may not even matter that much with star running back Leonard Fournette set to return.
Jennings has not indicated as to where he will transfer, but stay tuned to Campus Sports for further updates on this story!
