Les Miles won't rule out using graduate transfer to fix LSU QB woes

BY foxsports • February 4, 2015

LSU rushed the ball plenty during the 2014 season, and they were pretty good at it.

The Tigers ranked No. 11 in rushing attempts and gained 2,919 yards as a team, averaging 4.7 yards per carry. They also benefitted from the emergence of true freshman Leonard Fournette, who, by the end of the season, was literally running over people and doing stuff like this

Putting the ball in the air, though, was a different story. LSU ranked 109th in the FBS in total yards, in part because they didn't do it much: They attempted just 276 passes (120th), which made the team one-dimensional at times. 

Surely the Tigers will seek some more balance in 2015, and head coach Les Miles is in the process of figuring that out right now. He joined FOX Sports' Bruce Feldman and Stewart Mandel on National Signing Day to discuss the options, and said he isn't opposed to pursuing a graduate transfer to address the QB situation.

Still, he expressed confidence in Anthony Jennings and Brandon Harris, his go-to guys under center last season, too.

We'll have to wait to see how it plays out, but should Miles decide to go the graduate route, may we suggest that Braxton Miller guy at Ohio State? 

In the video above, you'll also hear Miles talk about his 2015 recruiting class and the strength of his squad in the secondary. Feel free to give it a listen.
