Myles Brennan wasn't kidding.

After returning home from visiting Oklahoma State earlier in the month, the St. Stanislaus quarterback said he was going to pull the trigger and commit when the match felt right.

Well, apparently LSU is the right fit for the lead Rockachaw.

SSC coach Bill Conides said Brennan was on a visit when he committed.

The two-time Sun Herald Player of the Year has been one of the more prolific passers in the country during his prep career and has seen his stock rise.

Brennan stood out at The Opening, which was held in New Orleans several weeks back.

Brennan has already passed for 11,045 yards and 117 touchdowns in two seasons at SSC. He has also shown improved mobility and pocket awareness in the last two seasons.

The 6-foot-4, 180-pound quarterback recently visited Oklahoma State, although the Cowboys did not offer at the time.

Brennan said after the visit that he expected LSU to visit Bay St. Louis during the spring season and he hoped to make a commitment some time during the spring.

"Obviously as a quarterback, time shortens a lot," he said after the OSU visit. "My time is broken down into two more months basically. At the quarterback position, if you don't commit there's a chance you (will be passed over).

"I'm just waiting for spring to play out and for all the schools to come down and evaluate me. I feel like once spring is over I'll have a good idea."

At the time, he was hopeful OSU would visit after visiting Bay St. Louis.

"Once I feel comfortable with a school after that, I'll go ahead and pull the trigger," he said.

LSU offensive coordinator Cam Cameron reportedly visited SSC last week for the start of spring workouts.

Brennan chose the Tigers over offers from Southern Miss, Memphis, Troy, South Alabama, Cal, Kentucky, West Virginia, Cincinnati, Wake Forest, Wisconsin, Indiana, Arkansas State, Louisiana-Lafayette, Texas-San Antonio and Vanderbilt.

Brennan is the second SSC standout to commit this spring. Tight end Chase Rogers committed to Tennessee in early March. Brennan is also the fifth 2017 Coast product to commit to a SEC school. Ocean Springs receiver Austin Williams, Gautier offensive lineman Paul Gainer and Pascagoula defensive lineman James Jackson have all committed to Mississippi State.
