LSU QB enrollee Lowell Narcisse already aiming for starting job

Lowell Narcisse

Lowell Narcisse only just officially became a member of the LSU football team, but he’s already looking to prove any doubters wrong.

Narcisse, who joined the Tigers as an early enrollee at the school Wednesday, said as much on Twitter when he presumably noted that he was looking to win the starting quarterback job as early as this upcoming season.

Narcisse, a four-star dual-threat prospect, would have to beat out returning starter Danny Etling and Brandon Harris for the job. Both will be seniors this fall.

Etling, who started 10 games this past season after taking over for Harris, threw for 2,123 yards, 11 touchdowns and five interceptions.

Harris, despite losing his starting job after two games in 2016, said last month that he wasn’t planning to transfer.

Narcisse will also have competition from fellow 2017 commitment Myles Brennan, who will arrive in the summer.

Narcisse originally committed to LSU in May 2016 before decommitting last month. A week later, he recommitted when Matt Canada was hired as offensive coordinator.

In late August, Narcisse, a Saint James, Louisiana native, tore his ACL.

Last week, Narcisse told Gridiron Now that it was a “blessing” to have a coach like Ed Orgeron.
