And that research will allow the 6-foot-3 180 pounder to eliminate some of the 14 schools who have already offered him. Though it was thought that he had already reduced that list to a final seven.
"It's changed a little," said Briscoe. "There's a surprise team that's going to get an official. I had basically cut them off my list but they kept coming and really have caught my attention this time around. – but I'm not ready to release who it is yet."
The original top seven schools were Duke, N.C. State, Virginia, Tennessee, Nebraska, Georgia, and Clemson – all had offered. However a second seven of North Carolina, East Carolina, South Carolina, Kansas State, Wake Forest, Maryland, and Vanderbilt have also offered, meaning one of those seven has snuck above the ‘cut line'.
"I've done my research and I've called some of the coaches at the schools I am interested in, and I've tried to get to a place where I don't have a lot left to do in recruiting so that I can concentrate on my senior season."
"It's hard to eliminate some schools because I like them all a lot, but it's something that needs to be done."
That senior season kicked off in grand style with a Lawndale scrimmage that ended up being a route for Briscoe's bunch.
We played really well, and I had a good afternoon. I caught a touchdown and had close to 100 yards. I also ran the ball well."
