Ed Orgeron clarifies LSU's QB situation, offers advice for Garrett Nussmeier
LSU has a new wrinkle to its quarterback situation after the loss to Arkansas on Saturday.
Max Johnson played 2 series and was 3-for-6 passing for 21 yards, while Garrett Nussmeier relieved him and completed 18-of-31 passes for 179 yards with a touchdown and 2 interceptions.
On Monday, coach Ed Orgeron clarified where each QB stands.
“I like Garrett and Max, both great players,” he said. I don’t think Garrett beat out Max. Max is still our starter. It’s going to be up to Garrett and his father if he wants to redshirt or play in a backup role. If I were him I’d redshirt.”
Orgeron added that he would leave it up to the Nussmeiers about whether they want to preserve the redshirt year, or continued to play as Johnson’s backup for the rest of the season.
