Brennan Could Be Insurance For Cowboys

Oklahoma State has offered former LSU commit Myles Brennan, who opened his recruiting back up after the recent decision by new Tigers head coach Ed Oregeron to begin recruiting other quarterbacks.

Oklahoma State fans are going to be asking and voicing concern that offering quarterback prospect Myles Brennan that the Cowboys could be jeopardizing the commitment from 2017 quarterback Jelani Woods. Woods is set to enroll at mid-year and is still guiding Cedar Grove High School toward a state championship in Georgia.

In fact, Woods had one of his best games in a playoff win last week. The reason for asking is Tuesday's scholarship offer to the former LSU commit. The tall and athletic quarterback finished his senior season with 3,941 yards passing and 48 touchdowns and just three interceptions. Now Brennan has de-committed from LSU.

It's all a product of the coaching change at LSU as Brennan committed to former head coach Les Miles and his offensive coordinator Cam Cameron. Now with Ed Oregeron taking over and the top prospect for the OC job on the staff being current Alabama offensive coordinator Lane Kiffin, LSU is recruiting other quarterbacks. 

Oklahoma State has plenty of quarterbacks right now with commitments from Woods (2017) and Spencer Sanders from Denton Ryan (2018), but you always have to be ready. Oklahoma State fans hope that Mason Rudolph will be back for his senior season, but he likely will look at getting his evaluation from the NFL. Keondre Wudtee has looked really good in his redshirt season, so you always risk quarterbacks on the depth chart departing and leaving your numbers depleted.

Brennan is a strong-armed and very talented prospect who visited Oklahoma State in the spring and has looked really good in his prep career and his camp appearances. 

Here was his letter on Twitter de-committing from LSU: "Let me start by saying thank you to all the fans of the LSU Tigers," Brennan wrote on his Twitter site. "You have been unbelievably supportive of me and my family since the day I committed to LSU. I love the people of Louisiana and what the football team means to everyone that is a fan. I also want to thank Coach Les Miles and Coach Cam Cameron for believing in my abilities and offering me a scholarship to play at LSU. It's truly one of the most special places in the world. It has, however, become very apparent to me that LSU is going through a transition and as a result I have decided to re-open my recruiting. With respect to the media outlets across the country, please direct all questions to my head coach Bill Conides. Thank you again, God Bless."
