Brandon Harris signs with LSU

BATON ROUGE - LSU became one of the first programs in college football to take advantage of new NCAA legislation Thursday as the Tigers signed highly-touted quarterback prospect Brandon Harris to an Institutional Financial Aid Agreement.

Under the new NCAA legislation, it permits high school seniors who are on schedule to graduate at mid-year and who plan to enroll in college for the spring semester, the opportunity to sign an Institutional Financial Aid Agreement.

Harris will enroll at LSU in January and will take part in spring practice with the Tigers.

"We are excited about having Brandon join our program," LSU coach Les Miles said. "He comes to us with a great understanding of the game and with tremendous skills. He's very bright and he's a quality person with great character. He's a big addition to our team."
