FSSW 7v7: Jeremiah Briscoe

Quarterback Jeremiah Briscoe needed the summer months to become better acquainted with his new surroundings and new teammates at Stradford. The 2011 season will be a big part of Jeremiah's efforts to show college programs he can help lead their teams' to new heights. Scout.com caught up with Briscoe over the weekend at the Texas State 7-on-7 tournament to talk football, transfers and his future.

"This has been a good experience," said Jeremiah. "It is a great opportunity to come out and develop some chemistry with these guys.

"It's been huge for me since I transferred. This has been my first time to throw with these guys and run our offense.

"This is helping me get control of the offense, so I can learn it and when we get into the season it will come like second nature."

Briscoe has put in some windshield time to show college coaches what he has to offer and he still has a few stops to make before two-a-days.

"I have been to Arizona and Baylor," said Jeremiah. "I am going to Arkansas, Alabama and Tennessee.

"I don't have any offers right now since some other guys have committed places.

"I think Arkansas is close to offering me. Hopefully, Alabama and Tennessee will piggy back off of that.

"I feel like Arkansas and Tennessee are both really close."

Another SEC program came on strong in the early going, but their efforts have not been as regular recently.

"Things were pretty hot with LSU early on, but things have calmed down lately," said Briscoe. "I haven't had as much contact with them recently. Not like I used to."

Jeremiah believes some programs are waiting to see how things go this fall before pulling the trigger on an offer.

The talented signal caller has high expectations for his team this fall.

"We have tremendous athletes on both sides of the ball," said Briscoe. "We have to great safeties in Kelvin and A.J.

"It is unbelievable having two D1 guys back there at the same time. We're going to be good.

"We are going to have a very fast paced and explosive offense. We're going to run a lot of no huddle, so I have big plans for us.

"We are going to do some great things this year."
