QB Walker Howard transfers to Ole Miss from LSU

LSU Tigers head coach Brian Kelly talks with LSU Tigers quarterback Walker Howard (14) during warm ups before Auburn Tigers take on LSU Tigers at Jordan-Hare Stadium in Auburn, Ala., on Saturday, Oct. 1, 2022.

Ole Miss landed LSU transfer quarterback Walker Howard, who played in only two games for the Tigers in 2022 as a freshman.

Howard visited Ole Miss and TCU last week and announced Wednesday he is joining the Rebels, where he will have four years of eligibility remaining.

Howard was a four-star recruit out of St. Thomas More (La.) and ranked as the No. 40 overall recruit in his class by the 247Sports composite.

At LSU, Howard completed 2 of 4 passes for 7 yards and retained redshirt status. He rushed six times for 33 yards.

Jaxson Dart, a transfer from USC, and Howard are likely to compete for the starting spot at Ole Miss. Luke Altmyer, the Rebels’ backup quarterback in 2022, transferred to Illinois.
