Is LSU’s Anthony Jennings Headed To The Ragin’ Cajuns?
Remember Anthony Jennings? You know, the guy that used to be the starting quarterback for LSU? He might be moving down I-10 to join the Ragin' Cajuns.
If Jennings finishes his degree at LSU and becomes a grad student, he could be in Lafayette immediately. Interested? I thought so.
Mark Hudspeth's Ragin' Cajuns clearly need to fix their passing game to compliment star running back Elijah McGuire. Jennings would be able to run the read option game, help out the run game with scrambling ability, and hopefully, be able to complete a couple passes. Sophomore QB Jordan Davis is the chosen one at this point in time, but Jennings would certainly spice the conversation up if he wound up on campus.
In 2014, he passed for 1,611 yards and 11 TD's, but his 7 INT's were a concern, along with his 48.9 completion percentage and his propensity to hold onto the ball and take sacks.
I'm not saying Anthony Jennings is going to be the messiah. I'm just saying he could come in and compete at QB, in a fresh situation and a new environment. With the pressure of LSU's fan base off his shoulders, maybe he finds his rhythm and flow in a different offense. Call me a dreamer.
Brandon Harris is steering the ship at LSU, and Jennings just wants a shot at leading an offense again. If he can hit the books and finish out his degree, he might have that opportunity again.
The offseason just got a lot more interesting in the state of Louisiana.
