Report: QB Garrett Nussmeier to remain at LSU in 2023
LSU is keeping its quarterback room intact heading into the fall.
According to a report from On3’s Shea Dixon, Tigers backup quarterback Garrett Nussmeier has elected not to enter the transfer portal and will remain in Baton Rouge for the 2023 season. Nussmeier played in seven games last fall, completing 52 of 84 passes for 800 yards, five touchdowns and four interceptions.
Nussmeier had particularly noteworthy performances replacing an injured Jayden Daniels against Georgia in the SEC Championship and in the Citrus Bowl against Purdue. This prompted discussion regarding whether he would choose to enter the portal.
LSU expected Nussmeier to return, but following spring practice, there was a lot of anticipation regarding a potential transfer portal decision. Now, that decision is made, and the Tigers will officially have Nussmeier around for the long haul.

With 3 more years of eligibility, and Jayden Daniels in his final season, the QB future is bright for LSU. https://t.co/M4W3PQJCnD pic.twitter.com/r1k5yNu4BH

Between Nussmeier and true freshman, early enrollee Rickie Collins, LSU should enter the post-Daniels era with a strong quarterback situation.
