Fifth Official Visit for Josh Briscoe
Fifth Official Visit for Josh Briscoe
by Sean Kelly
It has been rumored over the last couple of weeks that Lawndale (N.C.) Burns wide receiver Josh Briscoe was working on narrowing down his list of favorites and was ready to name his final top five schools.
"Yes Sir, I have changed up my list of schools a little bit since the last time we spoke. One of the schools that had offered before and I was really not considering too much has gotten back into the picture and is going to get one of my final visits" stated Briscoe.
Briscoe indicated that the final school in line to receive and official visit was a mystery school of sorts and would come from outside his top seven schools. The original top seven schools were Duke, N.C. State, Virginia, Tennessee, Nebraska, Georgia, and Clemson – all of which have extended offers. 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 into the running for an official visit.
"My favorites have changed and there is pretty much a surprise team that is going to get a visit. I had pretty much eliminated them from consideration but of late they have really come on strong and I feel I need to give them a look. This school was not originally in my top 7 schools when we spoke the last time but just sort of caught my eye."
The 6 foot 3 inch Wide Receiver is keeping his cards pretty tight to the vest right now and has indicated that he will be announcing his official visits at the later part of this week. When pressed a bit to provide a hint as to who the official visit may be, Briscoe would not tip his hand.
"I have done my research and spoke with all the schools I am considering and the best thing I can tell you is to call me on Thursday and I can let you know. I am thinking about then is when I am going to release my official visits list."
Asked specifically if Kansas State was still under consideration?
"Yes Sir. I am still looking at them. I want to find a place where I can relax and enjoy my senior year and Kansas State has done a good job of recruiting me. I cannot tell you if they are going to get an official visit, but I can tell you that I am still considering them (Kansas State). Without going into too much detail, they are a school I still like right now."
Asked if the final five schools would be it for this talented Blue Chipper from North Carolina?
"Yes Sir. I am going to sit down and narrow it down to these five schools, they will all get a visit and then that is it. I will visit each and then make my decision. I would like to be able to concentrate on my senior year and part of that is narrowing my list down and then sticking with those schools."
Asked what has been the most difficult part of narrowing his list down?
"Just getting down to the five schools has been rough. It is hard to eliminate some schools because I really like them a lot but it is something I have to do."
Holding 14 offers right now, Briscoe has been one of the most highly sought Wide Receivers this year. He has all but made his decision which of his favorites will get the five official visits in the near future and has only to announce his decisions. We will check back on Thursday to find out who made the cut.
