LSU's recruiting class looking strong after landing QB Myles Brennan

BAY ST. LOUIS, MS (WVUE) -

If you attend a St. Stanislaus game, you're accustomed to a heavy-helping of points by the offense.

In two years, QB Myles Brennan produced video-game like numbers for the Rock-A-Chaws, over 11,000 yards and 117 touchdowns by air. Brennan's exploits caught the eye of Les Miles and his staff, which landed the 6-4, 220 pound in his office a month ago. 

"I thought it would be pretty cool to go home and talk with my parents. Talk about it, then call and commit. We're leaving, he gives mom and dad a hug. Out of nowhere I shake his hand, coach before I leave, I'm a go ahead and tell you I commit. Totally unexpected, out of the blue, I looked at my parents and they had the biggest smiles on their faces. I gave them a hug, it was a real special moment," Myles Brennan said.

The class of 2017 commitment racks up huge numbers thanks to a pass-happy attack, but don't you dare call him a "system quarterback."

"That was the knock on him that I would read or people would say, it would bother me. So we're changing things up a little bit without going into too much detail. We're changing things up a little bit to show this is a guy who can play in a pro-style system, spread system as well. Not just a system quarterback," said St. Stanislaus Head Coach Bill Conides.

Thanks to Leonard Fournette and a host of other running backs, the Tigers offense is all about ground-and-pound. It seems like a bad fit for Brennan, but he feels quite the opposite.

"I'm considered a pro-style quarterback, but that's just a title," Brennan said. "I feel LSU is one of the best offenses I can go into to get me to the next level, the NFL. Obviously that's my main goal. One point Coach Miles made is that their offense hasn't changed since Mettenberger, and Matt Flynn were there. All these great athletes that are in the NFL. Their talent has been at other places other than the quarterback position."

Myles was born in the crescent city and feels like New Orleans is his second home.

"We're down there more than we're in Mississippi," Brennan said. "My family owns many restaurants down there, the Bacchus organization. I have many cousins that have gone to LSU. One was a cheerleader, that's now an assistant coach there."

The Myles Brennan show will make an appearance in New Orleans this fall. The Rock-A-Chaws take on Brother Martin Sept. 2, a Friday night, at Tad Gormley Stadium.
