LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) - Former LSU quarterback Anthony Jennings has signed a grant-in-aid to play for the University of Louisiana-Lafayette in the 2016 season.

Louisiana-Lafayette coach Mark Hudspeth said Thursday that Jennings has one season of eligibility remaining.

Jennings went 9-4 as LSU’s starter, mostly as a sophomore in 2014, when he led the Tigers’ offense during an Outback Bowl victory over Iowa. Last season, however, he lost the starting job to Brandon Harris. LSU also has acquired new quarterbacks who are expected to compete for playing time.

Jennings has appeared in a total 24 games for LSU. He completed 124-of-256 passes for 1,792 yards and 12 touchdowns. He also rushed for 310 yards and a touchdown

Hudspeth says Jennings brings a wealth of experience to the program and the position.
