Briscoe to visit SMU

Three-star QB Jeremiah Briscoe of (Houston) Stratford will visit SMU in a few weeks along with teammate A.J. Justice, who committed to the Mustangs yesterday. Get more details inside.

Yesterday, three-star Stratford safety A.J. Justice committed to SMU, and he'll visit on September 10th for the SMU/UTEP game. Joining him will be another three-star prospect: teammate Jeremiah Briscoe, the 60th-ranked QB prospect in the nation.

"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."
