The new era under Brian Kelly has officially started after completing his first spring game at LSU. Now the Tigers will start to turn their attention to addressing certain weaknesses this summer. Kelly praised TE Kole Taylor, WR Jack Bech, & RB John Emery after the spring game saying he was impressed with their performances on the day.
It’s safe to say that it’s definitely a three man race for the starting quarterback spot. Myles Brennan, Jayden Daniels, & Garrett Nussmeier have all shown that they are capable of being the starting signal caller. My guess is that one of these three will hit the transfer portal by the summer though.
Just based off the practices & spring game, I’d have to give the slight edge to Nussmeier though. He has seemed the most consistent & has shown that he can make the tough throws in tight windows time & time again. Maybe it’s just me, but it seems as though the receiver room has flocked toward Nussmeier the most.
With the battle being so close, coach Kelly didn’t rule out possibly playing two quarterbacks this upcoming season. “I’ve done it before & these three have made this battle extremely tough,” Kelly said.
The strength of the team seems to be wide receiver, running back, & defensive line. Offensive line, defensive back, & linebacker are the positions coach Kelly & his staff will need to address this off-season.
Kayshon Boutte, Jack Bech, Brian Thomas, Kyren Lacy, Malik Nabers, Chris Hilton, & Jaray Jenkins will arguably be the most talented receiving core in the SEC in my opinion.
John Emery, Noah Cain, Armoni Goodwin, Kevontre Bradford, & Josh Williams will makeup a really good running back room. And Emery looks like he will be a top 5 running back in the country.
The defensive front is pretty elite with Maason Smith, B.J Ojulari, Ali Gaye, & Jaquelin Roy.
With 2 scholarships remaining, I anticipate the Tigers to go after another offensive lineman & a linebacker before May 1st.
