Could former Tulane quarterback help LSU?

BY foxsports • January 13, 2016

LSU's never-ending search for a quarterback continues to occur. 

Former Tulane signal-caller Tanner Lee will visit LSU officially this upcoming weekend. Tulane recently hired Willie Fritz from Georgia Southern as its head coach. With an option-based offensive scheme heading to New Orleans, it doesn't exactly fit Lee's strengths as a player -- hence Lee's decision to transfer. 

A redshirt sophomore, Lee started the vast majority of the past two years. During his freshman and sophomore campaigns, he combined to throw 23 touchdowns and 21 interceptions. At 6'4", 220 pounds, the Destrehan, La. native is a big, physical signal-caller. 

LSU is currently pursuing a litany of options at the quarterback position. Along with Lee, there are multiple high school prospects potentially in line to add depth behind Brandon Harris and Purdue transfer Danny Etling. 

More than anything, head coach Les Miles needs to enhance both the production and consistency from the position.
