BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - High school football fans who have watched Myles Brennan toss the football the past two seasons at St. Stanislaus are well aware of his talents having passed for 11,007 yards and 117 touchdowns.
Myles Brennan, an LSU commitment, entered the L.A. Elite 11 camp for 2017 prospects as a 3-star quarterback and that 3-star should reach 5-star status by the time he leaves The Opening in Oregon next month. The Top 12 quarterbacks received an invitation to compete at the Nike Headquarters from July 6-10.
Bleacher Report said it was easy to admire Brennan's demeanor as a potential leader in the offensive huddle and locker room. It added that he was among the most focused quarterback in the country. Los Angeles camp counselors selected Brennan as the Elite 11 finals "strongest arm" saying he can shred defenses deep or with intermediate passes.
According to Bleacher Report, out of the 23 quarterbacks participating, Brennan placed 8th overall. Brennan finished as the No. 2 overall quarterback Saturday during the Elite 11 Pro Day event. Brennan was also named as having the best feet out of all of the quarterbacks competing.
247 Sports had Brennan ranked No. 5. 247 Sports quoted Elite 11 head coach Trent Dilfer as saying Brennan is a super impressive kid. Dilfer is a former NFL quarterback with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
St. Stanislaus head coach Bill Conides knew all along that Brennan would establish himself as one of the nation's top recruits.
"It goes beyond the stats, "stated Conides. "Stats are one thing but who he is on a daily basis is something else. The competitor, the champion in every single thing that he does. The weight room, the classroom. What he has to do on the practice field, obviously that transcends to game night. So success that you've seen and the offers and invite so far, are just a by-product of what's he been able to do on a daily basis."
Before the Elite 11 LA camp, most SEC coaches didn't recruit Brennan because he weighs right at 180 pounds. Most of the coaches want Brennan to weigh 200 pounds.
Brennan says LSU offensive coordinator Cam Cameron told him that the Tigers known he will add more weight once he arrives in Baton Rouge.
Brennan said, "That's one thing coach Cameron said, if you're 200-205 right now we couldn't develop you into anything. If we develop you, you'd be at 235-240 and that's not what a quarterbacks. He's excited about the way I am right now, just can wait for me to get up there."
Brennan made a name for himself in Mississippi and now the entire nation is taking notice of his outstanding talents that have separated him from the pack.
Another 2017 LSU quarterback commitment, Lowell Narcisse was ranked as the No. 9 quarterback at the L.A. Elite 11 finals over the weekend, but he wasn't invited to The Opening next month in Oregon.
