Les Miles says Brandon Harris, who is one of Louisiana's top high school quarterbacks, is enrolling at LSU.
Operating under new NCAA rules, LSU on Thursday signed Harris to an Institutional Financial Aid Agreement that will allow him to enroll in January, shortly after his mid-year graduation from Parkway High School in Bossier City.
Miles says the 6-foot-3, 190-pound Harris will come to LSU with ''a great understanding of the game and with tremendous skills.''
Eight games into his senior season, Harris has completed 59 percent of his passes for 1,989 yards and 22 touchdowns. Parkway is 8-0 in Class 5A entering the final week of the regular season.
Last season, Harris passed for 2,573 yards and 26 touchdowns while running for 667 yards and 12 TDs.

LSU coach Les Miles seems like a guy who would enjoy birthday festivities – just a hunch. Luckily, his players and staff remembered his big day and got him both a cake and a giant card to celebrate. Miles’ birthday is actually this Sunday, so we’ll assume that they didn’t want the result of the big game against Alabama to potentially dampen the spirit.
I bet we can all...
LSU Tigers head coach Les Miles was being interviewed in his car on the way to work by ESPN’s Kaylee Hartung in a lead up to this weekend’s game against the Alabama Crimson Tide. ESPN is doing this as a part of their “All-Access” segments that lead up to the game this weekend. After running the red light at 1:05 of the video, Les Miles gave a great excuse:
“I did not...
It’s simple. No one does it better than the LSU video guys.
Alternate helmets are here to stay. I’m still trying to get a grassroots movement going so that Gruff Sparty shows up on MSU’s helmets. In the meantime, here is LSU paying homage to the locally grown, but nationally popular Duck…Read more →
LSU has won 5 of their last 6 games at Bryant-Denny Stadium and is 8-4 there since 1988.
A lot of people are going to be looking for this (and I give more information about the things I’m going to discuss here): LSU/Alabama Rivalry blog.
I also wanted to list the other posts this week in case you missed any (I usually don’t post so much in a short period of time):

My first team on upset alert for week 11 is No.1 Alabama Crimson Tide. They face off against what I consider a heated rival, the No.13 LSU Tigers. These two teams always have a street fight on the football field and I don’t expect Saturdays game to be any different.
The thing that I think Alabama will struggle with is LSU’s vertical game. LSU receivers Jarvis Landry and Odell...
The LSU Tigers are No. 13 in the BCS polls, but in the TiqIQ Top 25 LSU football tickets are ranked ninth, averaging $155 per ticket at their home games.
So, I think it’s safe to say that there’s a pretty big game to be played in Tuscaloosa tonight. No. 13 LSU is traveling to take on the No. 1 Crimson Tide and will try to derail Alabama’s quest win a third straight national championship. LSU has already released a special hype video for the game, and is pulling out all of the stops to get the Tigers fired up.
Today, the players...
ESPN's College GameDay rolled into Tuscaloosa to cover the LSU Tigers matchup against top-ranked Alabama Crimson Tide. Here are day's best signs.

Braxton Miller is 4th in the nation with 72% completion, and is 7th in the nation in pass efficiency. Take out that injury, and his numbers here stack up with Mariota and Winston. But I digress…….
