Late Sunday night, LSU quarterback Anthony Jennings made his first foray onto Periscope, a popular live video streaming app.
In his brief appearance, Jennings offered few insights, other than to say he though the Tigers would have a great season.
“I think we will be tremendous – SEC champions,” Jennings said. “I believe that.”
The Tigers junior took a few questions, none pertaining to his current legal situation or suspension from the LSU team. Jennings has been suspended since his arrest in late June with two other Tigers for unauthorized entry of an inhabited dwelling.
The brief Periscope session, which lasted only a couple of minutes, was Jennings’ first public statement of any kind since his arrest and suspension, and perhaps a snapshot into his feelings about his future with the start of preseason camp late next week.
LSU coach Les Miles said on ESPN last week that he believed Jennings will eventually be able to return to the team and competition with sophomore Brandon Harris. It’s Harris who has done the work with LSU’s offense during summer seven-on-seven drills.
“This has been cool,” Jennings said just before signing off. “Peace out.” The next time Jennings is heard from is likely to be Aug. 16 at LSU’s media day.
