Quarterback Brandon Harris plans to transfer from LSU.

Harris made the declaration via social media and the school later confirmed his intention to transfer.

After starting the first two games of the season for the Tigers, Harris was replaced by Purdue transfer Danny Etling.

Harris played in only four games in 2016.

He went 9-3 as a sophomore in 2015, but with only modest production, was on a short leash in 2016. An uneven performance in LSU’s loss to Wisconsin at Lambeau Field led to a change from then-coach Les Miles.

Etling will be a senior this coming season, but LSU is limited at quarterback behind him.

If Harris graduates, he could be eligible to play immediately at any school.
