Top LSU recruit from Bay St. Louis reacts to Miles firing


NEW ORLEANS (WGNO) — With LSU’s firing of Les Miles, one question is how will next year’s recruits react.

St. Stanislaus QB Myles Brennan, one of the Tigers’ top early recruits, says he’s still coming.

He tweeted: “I’m still a Committed Tiger..Geaux Tigers.”

Brennan was named to the ALL-USA Preseason Football Team by USA Today. He was an Elite 11 quarterback competition finalist.

He was born in New Orleans and moved to the Mississippi Gulf Coast when he was young. Hurricane Katrina sent him and his family on a detour to Florida for a few years, before they returned to Bay St. Louis for his 7th-grade year.

He was up-front about his commitment to LSU when WGNO spoke to him at the beginning of this month (September), but included some wiggle room. "I'm committed to LSU and I'm grateful for that," Brennan said then. "But, you know, I'm looking to go into the season and the main goal is to go out and get the state championship."

His team, the St. Stanislaus Rock-A-Chaws, are 4-1, with its sole loss to Brother Martin at Tad Gormley.

Miles was fired Sunday (Sept. 25), hours after LSU's 18-13 loss at Auburn. Also, getting the boot was offensive coordinator Cam Cameron. The interim head coach will  be defensive line coach and recruiting coordinator Ed Orgeron.
