It seems like a lot of LSU fans have been waiting for this.

Ed Orgeron announced earlier today in a press conference that Max Johnson will remain LSU’s starting quarterback against Arkansas, but Backup Garrett Nussmeier will be receiving playing time against the Hogs. Whoever performs better will stay in the game.

There has been a portion of the fan base that has been calling for Nussmeier to play due to the lack of performance from Max Johnson. It seems they’re finally getting their wish.

Nussmeier is a four-star pro-style quarterback from Marcus High School in Flower Mound, Texas. He was one of the nation’s top quarterback prospects coming out of high school, earning four stars from 247 Sports, ESPN and Rivals. He was ranked as the 13th best prospect at his position nationally by ESPN as well as being the No. 9 prospect overall in Texas and No. 61 overall.
