BATON ROUGE, LA (WVUE) -

With Anthony Jennings transferring out of the program to attend ULL, Brandon Harris no longer has a quarterback with experience at LSU looking over his shoulder. For the team, and the head coach, that's a good thing.

"I think the years where you're trying to figure out where your leader at quarterback, the guy that's taking snaps is going to come from is -- it's pretty obvious at this point that he is that guy and I kinda enjoy that. I think he does, too. For that matter, I think the team does as well," said LSU Head Coach Les Miles.

LSU possesses one of the best running back combos in the country with Leonard Fournette and Derrius Guice. With no passing game, this duo will suffer. With 13 starts under his belt, Harris is ready to go vertical in 2016.

"More experienced, I guess going into my third season in this offense, all these guys around," said Harris, a junior. "I think it's a reason to have excitement here, we finished the season last year beating Texas A&M then carried into beating Texas Tech in the bowl game, we had a great spring and so far, have had a great fall camp and we're looking forward to finishing that way and going into the season."

"If your quarterback isn't confident in himself, we're not going to have confidence in him. He talks, walks different, and that's a good thing. That something I'm proud to say because, from our freshman year to sophomore year to now, it's a tremendous change," said Fournette.
