ESPN analyst, former LSU standout, Ryan Clark reverses course on Joe Burrow after watching practice
ESPN analyst and former LSU and NFL DB Ryan Clark spent some time at the Tigers’ practice Tuesday, and he came away very impressed with Joe Burrow.
The Ohio State transfer enters his second year as LSU’s starting quarterback. During his first year, Burrow threw for 2,894 yards, 16 TDs and five INTs.
Clark, who usually appears on ESPN’s ‘Get Up’ with Mike Greenberg, admitted he was wrong about Burrow.
“I admit when I’m wrong,” Clark tweeted. “I wasn’t excited when Joe Burrow came to LSU after losing the OSU QB battle. I was hard on him, but today he made some BIG time NFL throws while I watched him at practice. I’m legit excited about what he can do at QB in this offense. We finally got a guy!”
LSU hasn’t had “a guy” in a long time at quarterback. The history has been well documented, but Burrow is trying to reverse the trend.
The Tigers signal caller was voted on as the SEC’s third team quarterback behind Tua Tagovailoa and Jake Fromm. Popular candidate Kellen Mond finished behind Burrow in the voting.
Burrow missed the Tigers first spring scrimmage after suffering “a minor camp injury,” but he was back on the field Tuesday. That’s certainly great news for LSU.
