Another offseason, another former LSU starting quarterback has made a decision to move on.

As a graduate transfer, Harris will be eligible to suit up immediately regardless of where he lands.

Harris tweeted his intentions to transfer Monday afternoon and LSU spokesman Michael Bonnette later confirmed Harris' departure to ESPN.

Brandon Harris lost his starting job in 2016, and now he is leaving LSU.

With only one season of eligibility remaining, Harris may opt for a program that doesn't feature a returning starter like Shane Buechele. Etling, a senior, redshirt sophomore Justin McMillan, redshirt freshman Lindsey Scott and true freshman Lowell Narcisse, a mid-year enrollee, are expected to compete in the spring.

Guests can come from all over the state, but most came from Norfolk and Northeast Nebraska communities or from Omaha and Lincoln. Night to Shine has it all- red carpets, limo rides, crowns, dancing, dinner, desserts, and fellowship. "There are photo booths".

Harris would have been a senior at LSU next season.

Harris will graduate this spring, and he said in a statement on Twitter that he's excited to find the "best place" to further his education and playing career next season. I look forward to cheering you guys on next season. "Lastly, I'll [sic] like to thank anyone who has impacted me over the last three years I'm forever grateful and can't thank you enough".

Gifted with a strong arm, Harris struggled to develop under LSU offensive coordinator Cam Cameron as did Jennings. He beat out Jennings for the starting job in 2015 and threw for 2,165 yards, 13 touchdowns and six interceptions while completing just 53.8 percent of his passes.
