BATON ROUGE (KATC) — Wednesday morning LSU redshirt junior quarterback Justin McMillan told the LSU coaching staff we would be transferring from the program.
McMillan’s announcement comes on the heels of redshirt freshman Lowell Narcisse’s transfer. The two were apart of a four-way quarterback battle entering fall camp with Ohio State transfer Joe Burrow, and sophomore Myles Brennan. Burrow and Brennan were the favorites to win the starting job.
Sports Illustrated’s Ross Dellinger noted Tuesday morning that in the last 13 recruiting classes, LSU has singed 20 quarterbacks, 15 of whom have either transferred, been dismissed from the team, or changed positions. Nine of those quarterbacks never played a down.
LSU redshirt freshman quarterback Lowell Narcisse tweeted Tuesday that he was leaving Baton Rouge.

Narcisse and junior quarterback Justin McMillan did not practice Tuesday leaving Ohio State transfer Joe Burrow and sophomore Myles Brennan to split the reps. Burrow and Brennan have been the favorites to win the starting job since the spring.
The Advocate reported Tuesday evening that Narcisse and McMillan were considering leaving, with a decision likely immanent.
Per usual media availability, players nor coach Ed Orgeron were available to speak after practice.
