The LSU Tigers have their quarterback for the 2015 class as three-star recruit Justin McMillan (Cedar Hill, Texas, Cedar Hill) committed on Wednesday after competing at the school’s camp this week.
McMillan ranks as the nation’s No. 1,484 player regardless of position, the No. 64 pro-style quarterback and the No. 214 player in the state of Texas, according to the 247Sports Composite Rankings.
“I’m going to be a Tiger for the next four years,” McMillan tells TigerBait. “I knew the instant I was here this was home. I could feel the atmosphere around school and met some of the players and they were cool. I could tell this was for me and that this is where I should be.”
McMillan threw for LSU offensive coordinator Cam Cameron who liked what he saw from the 6-1, 177-pound lefty and Les Miles extended the offer which was accepted on the spot.
“My visit went great over there,” he tells Shea Dixon of 247Sports. “They offered today and I committed on the spot.”
“Was there anything to think about?” McMillan said. “They have the best defense. They have the top wide receivers in the nation. LSU is a quarterback paradise.”
McMillan went 14-2 in his first season as the team’s starting quarterback and helped guide the team to the 5A state championship. McMillan completed 60 percent of his passes for 2,372 yards and 25 touchdowns to 12 interceptions.
With true sophomore Anthony Jennings and true freshmen Brandon Harris the only quarterbacks on the roster after transfers of Stephen Rivers and Hayden Rettig it was imperative for LSU to add a signal-caller to develop behind these two players who will vie for the starting quarterback job this fall.
With the commitment of McMillan, LSU now has 12 members in the class that is ranked as the No. 6 class in the country and the No. 4 team in the SEC, trailing only Alabama, Auburn and Texas A&M.
