CHRIS TODD/SPECIAL TO THE SUN HERALD St. Stanislaus quarterback Myles Brennan was invited Thursday to participate in the Elite 11 competition. The annual event will open in LA with 24 quarterbacks. Twelve will qualify to go to Oregon to compete in the finals.

Myles Brennan caught a glimpse of the Elite 11's trailer video on Twitter Thursday between classes.

The prestigious event had unveiled the first group of quarterbacks invited to its Los Angeles finals -- the first step before going to Oregon for The Opening finals.

Quarterback after quarterback flashed across his phone's screen.

The competitor in him wished he was included in the highlights.

Well, the St. Stanislaus quarterback won't be disappointed when the next video drops.

After the Rockachaws' film session Thursday, Brennan's phone buzzed with a text from Elite 11 director Brian Stumpf.

"I was just calling him back. I wasn't expecting anything whatsoever," Brennan said. "He said 'look, we had your film, sat down with Trent Dilfer and couldn't pass you up.

"The least we could do is extend you an offer.'"

Come June 3, Brennan will head West to prove he belongs in the conversation as one of the nation's top signal callers. After the regional, 12 quarterbacks will advance to the Elite 11 finals in Oregon.

"It's huge," Brennan said. "Once I figured out what the Elite 11 was, it's been a dream of mine."

Brennan's performance at The Opening's stop in New Orleans helped land the LSU commit a spot in LA.

"I went and gave it everything I had," Brennan said. "Hard work pays off."

Over the last two seasons, Brennan has been one of the most productive passers in the Southeast, throwing for 11,045 yards with 117 touchdowns.

Kellen Mond, Jake Allen, Chase Garbers, Tate Martell, Shawn Robinson, Chase Brice, Jake Fromm, Chris Robison, Davis Mills, Sam Ehlinger and Tommy Devito have already been announced for the LA competition.

LSU competition

Brennan looks at it as another opportunity to compete, which is how he views his future at LSU.

Not even two weeks after pledging to the Tigers, another quarterback, Lowell Narcisse of St. James, La., also committed to LSU.

"It doesn't bother me one bit," Brennan said. "They told us they were going to take another quarterback. It wasn't anything personal, they just needed the depth at the position."

Brennan views it as just another opportunity to show what he can do with a pigskin.

"We're just going to compete every day as teammates and make each other better," he said. "I'm not going to decommit just because another quarterback committed.

"I'm committed. I'm an LSU Tiger."
