Former Arizona State quarterback commits to LSU

LSU’s quarterback competition just got a little bit more interesting.

Coach Brian Kelly already had a lot to work with in veteran Myles Brennan, promising redshirt freshman Garrett Nussmeier and five-star true freshman Walker Howard. Now, a player with several years of starting experience in the Power Five joins that group.

On Sunday evening, the Tigers landed a commitment from one of the hottest names in the famed transfer portal this offseason in former Arizona State quarterback Jayden Daniels.

Daniels hasn’t officially announced his transfer destination yet, but ESPN’s Pete Thamel reported that he would be eligible for spring practice and will likely arrive on campus within the next few weeks.

Coming out of high school, Daniels was a four-star prospect and ranked as the No. 35 overall player in the country, the No. 2 quarterback, and the No. 3 player in the state of California. He played in 29 games during his three years with the Sun Devils in Tempe, Arizona, and has a career 62% completion percentage to go with 6,025 yards with 32 touchdowns, 13 interceptions, and a quarterback rating of 143.3.

The Sun Devils finished the 2021 season 8-5 with a loss to Wisconsin in the Las Vegas Bowl.

Kelly has been one of the most active coaches in the country in the transfer portal this offseason, looking for talented athletes to help his first season at LSU be a successful one. He had rebuilt the entire secondary and filled in some questions on the offensive line as well.

He had a transfer quarterback start for him last year at Notre Dame, as well, in Jack Coan. Coan transferred to South Bend from Wisconsin and he finished with a record of 10-2 on the year. Kelly has found success with transfer quarterbacks before, and hopefully, he can get the best out of Daniels and lead the Tigers back to the promised land in 2022.
