BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - The LSU Spring Game is usually a blueprint for what fans can expect to see in the fall, but that may not be the case this year.

Many of the high-profile pieces of the puzzle for the Tigers, especially on offense, are still in high school. Miles admitted the game won't really be a true representation of what next season will look like.

"I think the new class that comes in is going to provide some real competition and we'll need those guys," Miles said. "When they come on campus, we'll fit them in a spot. So, we're going to use them."

The team is getting in its final spring work, before the dog days of summer.

The gates to Tiger Stadium open at 11:30 a.m. The game starts at 1 p.m. Admission is free to the public.

LSU will open the season against Wisconsin in Houston in less than five months. True sophomore quarterback Anthony Jennings continues to give his best effort towards winning the starting quarterback spot and likewise, holding off true freshman Brandon Harris, who is already with the team in camp.

"I think all of the quarterbacks are doing well at this point and I don't think I'm pressing," Jennings said. "If I come out and be relaxed and be who I am, I think that the coaches will see that. It's just still a tight battle."

There's been a ton of praise and scrutiny already heaped onto the young Jennings. However, No. 10 is doing his best to block that out and focus on the job at hand.

"I'm just trying to be the winningest quarterback in LSU history. So, you win games as a team. I know the quarterback is just one position on that field of the 22. So, if I do my role and get touchdowns and keep the offense going, I think the defense with obviously handle itself," Jennings added.
