Les Miles to take time picking LSU's QB

Les Miles said he'll take his time in choosing LSU's starting quarterback.

LSU coach Les Miles is in no hurry to name his starting quarterback for the 2015 season.

“The quarterback race is just what it is," Miles said after Monday's first full-squad practice. "It’ll take some time...I’m not that guy that’s going to make an early decision."

Just how long will it take? Miles isn't ready to give that answer yet. He simply called it an "ongoing process," and he's not going to name one after less than a week of fall camp.

But Miles did say Brandon Harris continues to take the first-team reps, though Anthony Jennings "took a good portion of them" during Monday's practice.

There were rumors last week that suggested Jennings was struggling with arm soreness. That tried to explain why it seemed Harris got significantly more throws during Saturday's portion of practice open to media. That gap lessened Sunday, and Miles said there is nothing "I saw or heard of" that suggested Jennings was injured in any way.

"He’s competing," Miles said. "He made a couple nice plays today. He’s competing very well.”

LSU's first scrimmage is Saturday, and that will be one of many factors that ultimately leads to deciding a starter.

“All the live work," Miles said. "All the view of the quarterback doing things that quarterback has to do — cadence, stem, motion, play, execution. All those things...

"They’re night and day better with how they continue to evolve. We’ll have better quarterback play.”
