"I talked to Coach (Jeff) Reinebold (SMU receivers coach) yesterday and he told me to let him know how my scrimmage went," said Briscoe. "The scrimmage went well. I was 15-of-17 passing. (Katy) Cinco Ranch was content to sit back in quarters and cover three and give me the flats. Our offense is very sound. It was a very smooth, easy transition when I transferred from Second Baptist. I knew several players at Stratford from playing youth league football with them. I had to work to gain my teammates' respect, but that happened quickly. After school, I studied film with our offensive coordinator, and the offense became second nature to me during 7-on-7 this summer.
"I sent Coach Reinebold a message on Facebook so I could find out a time to call him today. He wants me to come up for the UTEP game so I can meet the coaches in person. That will give them the opportunity to get the ball rolling. I'm really excited about SMU and Coach (June) Jones. It would be a great fit for me. It's not too far away, and it's one of the few Texas programs that is without a quarterback commit."
What's been happening with Briscoe's recruitment?
"I got in a hole with a couple of teams," he explained. "They offered, but then another quarterback committed and they were full. That happened with Arizona, Vanderbilt and Purdue. Baylor offered after my sophomore year. I had that offer for awhile, but I wasn't talking early commitment so they eventually moved on. I'm still getting interest from a couple of SEC schools: Arkansas and Alabama. I think my transfer threw a loop in my recruitment for awhile, but I believe it's all going to work out for the best."
