Former LSU quarterback Brandon Harris isn’t mincing any words following his transfer to UNC.
When asked about why he transferred, Harris noted UNC head coach Larry Fedora promised him he’d throw it “more than 16 times a game,” per The Advocate.
“I feel like we thought we were going to change the offense,” he said. “Obviously, I heard that every single year since I’ve been here, a promise that we were going to change and we were going to throw it more. Of course, ultimately, we didn’t do that.”
Harris’s throws fluctuated over his career at LSU as the Tigers rode Leonard Fournette through SEC competition. In 2014, he maxed out with only 14 passes attempted in a single game, while attempting as many as 51 in an individual game in 2015. Last season, he attempted just 25 total passes, including 21 attempts in a loss to Wisconsin.
Harris finished his LSU career with over 2,700 passing yards and 20 touchdowns against 10 interceptions. He completed less than 54 percent of his passes, but is hoping for a new start at UNC who just saw Mitch Trubisky go pro.
