NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - In a 138 days LSU will head to sunny California to meet up with UCLA in the Rose Bowl. Until then, there’s still a lot figure out with this Tiger team, but here’s what things look like on the LSU depth chart.
QB- Myles Brennan or Max Johnson. Coach Orgeron said after the spring game it’s still a four horse race for QB1, but it appears Johnson and Brennan separated themselves in Tiger Stadium. Johnson threw two TD passes, and Brennan also connected on a score. Garrett Nussmeier and TJ Finley combined to throw five interceptions.
RB- Tyrion Davis-Price was the only healthy scholarship running back in the spring game. John Emery, Jr., Tre Bradford, Corey Kiner (incoming freshman), and Armoni Goodwin (incoming freshman, will also push for reps, but TDP gets the nod right now.
WR- Kayshon Boutte, Jontre Kirklin, and Koy Moore. There’s a ton of talent at the receiver spot at LSU, and the only solid starter right now is Boutte. Kirklin’s 209 yards receiving jumped him into the top three.
TE- Kole Taylor
LT- Dare Rosenthal
LG- Ed Ingram
C- Liam Shanahan
RG- Chasen Hines
RT- Austin Deculus
