Gone pecan: Narcisse tells LSU, 'Thank you'

QB is transferring

And then there were three — for now at least.

Quarterback Lowell Narcisse has left the LSU football program and intends to transfer to another school, the redshirt-freshman announced in a tweet on Tuesday night.

Rumors swirled as both Narcisse and Justin McMillan, half of LSU’s quarterback competition, were conspicuously absent from practice on Tuesday afternoon. There’s nothing official yet on McMillan, but the fourth-year junior is said to be considering his future at LSU.

McMillan graduated from LSU earlier this month, so he’d be eligible to play right away at another Division I school as a graduate transfer should he follow Narcisse out the door. He’s got two years of collegiate eligibility remaining.

The situation is a bit more complicated for Narcisse, who took his redshirt last season. He could play right away at a junior college but would have to sit out a season if he decided to transfer to another Division I school. He’s got four years of eligibility remaining.

Quarterback attrition is nothing new for LSU. Narcisse’s announcement comes exactly one year to the day after Lindsey Scott, another in-state prospect, announced he’d transfer in the middle of his second fall camp.
