Even with a full spring practice behind them, LSU still has no answers at quarterback. According to Les Miles, the race for the starting job is as close as hours.

That’s what he told Ross Dellenger of The Advocate (Baton Rouge, La.) in an interview posted on Tuesday. Miles gave as much detail as you’d expect from the coach regarding the duel between Anthony Jennings and Brandon Harris while also detailing the program’s plans for the summer, but did shed a little light on how he intends to approach the situation this summer and fall.

The whole interview is worth checking out, but here are some highlights from Miles.

On how close Harris and Jennings are:

I think there’s a real closeness. One guy hasn’t separated himself from the other and both guys are playing much better.

On when he hopes to name a starter:

I would like to see those guys going into fall camp one separate themselves from the other and be a clear cut decision. If that does not happen — can’t make it happen — we’ll end up playing that guy who we feel like is the best for our team.

Summer plans for the quarterbacks:

I think it’s best that you have two veteran guys of summer around here that will lead that. They’re looking to have a great summer that way. I think you’re finding that both quarterbacks are looking for individual work – and receivers – at their own times and own direction throwing balls.

We’ll have a number of our seven-on-seven events featuring our offense versus our defense. Again player-driven.
