LSU QB commit Myles Brennan gaining national attention

BAY ST. LOUIS, MS (WVUE) -

The Mississippi Gulf Coast and South Louisiana are well aware of the exploits of St. Stanislaus quarterback Myles Brennan.

The New Orleans-born QB racked up a 11,045 yards passing, with 117 touchdowns in two years as a starter. The LSU class of 2017 member isn't a regional phenom anymore though, thanks to a national competition for QBs.

Elite 11, led by former NFL QB Trent Dilfer, invites the top 24 signal-callers in the country to compete for three days. Eleven are weeded out to make the class and get a "golden ticket" to Nike headquarters, rubbing shoulders with the best soon to be seniors in the country at all positions. Brennan recounted the moment his game went nation-wide.

"Knock on the door and I walk in, and it's every coach, cameras are everywhere, just the whole nine yards," Brennan said. "I sit down, and Coach Dilfer asked how I think I did today. I think I did pretty well, few bad throws, but nobody's perfect, correct the mistakes and move forward. He actually had the play we we were talking about on the TV, so we corrected that. I made them a promise on Saturday morning when I didn't make the Elite 11, I made them a promise I was going to make it to Oregon. Coach Dilfer said I can't keep it from you any longer, you made it to Oregon. I got up and gave everyone a hug."

Brennan's latest accomplishment didn't go unnoticed in Tiger Town

"The first two people that called me Monday morning were Coach Cameron and Coach Miles. They were fired up, so excited," Brennan said.

Two days after gaining Elite 11 status Brennan was back grinding in the Mississippi heat with his teammates. His new title won't give him a state crown and doesn't guarantee any success going forward.

"At the end of the day nothing changes. I'm just going to go out there and do what I do. I'm going to take coaching, and do what I do. I don't really feel any different. I'm not going to put myself on a pedestal because I made it to Oregon," said Brennan

Brennan's commitment to LSU is so solid, going forward he refuses to talk about other schools.
