Arkansas defender not impressed with LSU QB
Brandon Harris has quarterbacked LSU to a 7-1 start and a top 10 ranking in the polls.
But one Arkansas player isn’t impressed by the Tigers’ quarterback.
Razorbacks safety Santos Ramirez pointed out some of Harris’ flaws during an interview Thursday.
“He is predictable where he wants to go,” Ramirez told The Arkansas News. “He has got a good arm on him, but he’s not as accurate. He’s not very good with the ball in terms of decision making, but he can really throw the ball and he can get receivers behind us and we have to be careful with it.”
Harris, a sophomore, has thrown for 1,226 yards and 10 touchdowns this season, and has only been picked off once. With Leonard Fournette in the Tigers’ backfield, Harris has not been asked to carry the LSU offense. In fact, he has thrown for 157 yards or less in five games, and has passed for more than 228 yards only once.
Ramirez, a Louisiana native, was recruited by LSU, but chose to go to Arkansas instead. The redshirt freshman is excited about facing the Tigers.
“I have been looking forward trying to get to LSU,” he said. “I have some past ties with them and I want to get down there and show them what I’m all about.”
Louisiana online sports betting is officially live in much of the state. Louisiana joined the handful of other SEC football states with legalized sports betting in January 2022.
