Burrow and Myles Brennan have overtaken both Lowell Narcisse and Justin McMillan, who have each switched to Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College and Tulane

Burrow's family quickly jumped on the Tigers' train and was seen in social media in trench coats and "Geaux Jeaux Jeaux" T-shirts.
For LSU players, coaches and fans, it did not take long for Burrow to become a Tiger. He did not attend SEC Media Days, but his presence was noted in glowing reviews of his work ethic, including Orgeron commenting on how he raised the QB launch competition the moment he went to campus
This work ethic With Burrow's dual-threat capability, size, size and football IQ, is part of what Burrow primarily distinguished.
Burrow was redshirt in Ohio State in 2015 and was a backup for starter J.T. Barrett played in 2016 and 2017. He played 10 games throughout his career with the Buckeyes, completing 29 of 39 passes for 287 yards and two touchdowns. He also rushed for 53 yards and a touchdown.
Meanwhile, Brennan will secure Burrow.
Brennan played in his first season in six games replacing Danny Etling. As one of the country's best quarterback prospects, graduating from high school in 2017, Brennan was a consensus four-star prospect for all key recruitment services.
He holds the Mississippi High School career records for total offensive (16,168 yards), passing touchdowns (166) and passing yards (15,138).
It's possible Brennan was able to allow a Redshirt this season with the new NCAA rules player who participates in up to four games a year without losing a season of eligibility.
