“Top Ten in Ten” is a 10-part blog series on the top 10 players, by importance, for LSU’s 2014 season. We’ll have a player each weekday, counting down to the No. 1 player on Aug. 4, when LSU begins fall camp. 

  • No. 4:  Brandon Harris
  • Year, position:  Freshman, quarterback
  • Height, weight: 6-2, 184

Looking back

A four-star recruit who was ranked as the No. 3 dual-threat QB in the nation, Harris became more than just a challenger for the starting job after he out-dueled Anthony Jennings in the spring game. Harris, by some, is seen as the favorite to claim the gig. He enrolled early in January and began digesting the LSU playbook. He displayed an impressive deep ball and nifty escape moves from a collapsing pocket.

Looking forward

The chances of Harris playing quarterback for LSU this fall are very high. The speedy guy from Shreveport was included in a list of four true freshmen coach Les Miles said is expected to have a “great impact” on LSU’s 2014 season. He’ll battle with Jennings during fall camp for the starting gig. Already, Harris has a rapport with incoming freshmen running back Leonard Fournette and receiver Malachi Dupre.
