Anthony Jennings posts tribute to LSU, Tiger fans

On Thursday, LSU quarterback Anthony Jennings announced his intentions to graduate over the summer and transfer for his final season of eligibility. It has been a pretty emotional 12 hours since the announcement and Jennings decided to give his fans something they could remember.

Jennings, who started 14 games for the Tigers before being benched for Brandon Harris, will be best remembered for leading a comeback over the Arkansas Razorbacks in his freshman year in place of injured quarterback Zach Mettenberger.

After his announcement went public, he posted an emotional tribute to LSU and Tiger fans on Twitter, thanking them for all they did for him. He also brought up that game-winning drive against the Razorbacks and a road win over Florida just a year later.

Thank You LSU and Tiger Nation ! May God take the wheel. #ForeverLSU

While he never got over the hump as being a great quarterback for the Tigers, Anthony Jennings will be remembered for some of his fun times with the Tigers. He also has the chance to play wherever he ends up.

In two seasons with the Tigers, Jennings threw for 1,792 yards and 12 touchdowns. He also rushed for 310 yards and two touchdowns during that time, so he has a chance to play elsewhere.

He will be immediately eligible to play wherever he transfers if he is able to get his degree before the start of the 2016 season.
