On Saturday, LSU landed a prolific quarterback in Mississippi native Myles Brennan. Apparently, receiving that verbal from the Bay Saint Louis signal caller was such a big deal for head coach Les Miles, that it brought him to tears. Brennan described his commitment, which he made in person on a visit to Baton Rouge, to The Advocate.
Brennan debated waiting until he got home, talking about the offer more in depth with his family and then making a decision. Usually very meticulous and deliberate, the rising senior instead acted instinctively.
When it got to the point where the two sides said their goodbyes, Brennan acted.
"I just said, 'Coach, I want to go ahead and shake your hand and tell you I'm going to go ahead and commit,'" he said. "At that time, he just started screaming and tears started coming out of his eyes. He gave me a big ol' hug. My parents started tearing up and crying because they didn't know it was coming.
Miles is a pretty emotional guy. Considering how the past year played out, this is a pretty cool story. Brennan is a three star recruit, who threw for 5,200 yards and 53 touchdowns last year. LSU can certainly use a QB with numbers like that. Here is his recruiting profile, via 247Sports.
