Walker Howard, a five-star quarterback committed to LSU, is amped up about the Kelly hire. In fact, he thinks it’s only a matter of time before the Tigers win another championship.
Howard told a reporter on Tuesday that Kelly is going to bring another championship to Baton Rouge.
“He’s going to bring us to national championships,” Howard said.

Brian Kelly never won a title at Notre Dame, but he got close. His path to the championship will be far more difficult at LSU in the SEC, but he should have the players to do it.
Walker Howard could be one of those players. The five star out of Louisiana is one of the top quarterback recruits in the 2022 cycle. He garnered high praise for Gabe Brooks of 247Sports.
Consistent, accurate passer to all levels. Steps into throws and gets great zip on balls to the short-to-intermediate range. Posted stellar production in breakout junior campaign. Threw a lot of reps while also valuing the ball, as evidenced by only one INT per 63 pass attempts (five in 316 throws). Not a true dual-threat but functionally mobile with ability to extend plays outside the pocket. Remains accurate on the move. Squares shoulders and fires even when on the run. Plenty of arm strength but still probably some juice to squeeze out at the top end, which should come with add physical mass/strength. Typically stays on top of the ball but will have one sail a bit every once in a while. Possesses a good QB pedigree. Seems quite polished relative to age and could be a particularly high-floor QB at the next level. Projects to high-major competition with long-term NFL Draft potential.
Brian Kelly is expected to win championships at LSU. Only time will tell.
