LSU QB Anthony Jennings will transfer

Thursday March 10th, 2016

LSU quarterback Anthony Jennings will transfer after he graduates this summer, the school announced Thursday.

Jennings played in 22 games during his career in Baton Rouge, becoming the starter in 2013. That season, he made 13 starts, completing 48.9% of his passes for 1,611 yards, 11 touchdowns and seven interceptions. 

“Anthony did a lot of really good things for our program,” coach Les Miles said in a release. “As a freshman, he came in for an injured Zach Mettenberger and led us to a last-minute win over Arkansas and then he helped us to eight wins the following year as a sophomore.

“This is an opportunity for Anthony to put himself in a position to help another team have success. We wish him nothing but good fortune in the future and we appreciate all that he did while he was part of our program.”

Jennings did not see any time at quarterback in 2015 after losing the starting job to sophomore Brandon Harris.
