Brissett Recaps LSU

LSU hosted three visitors from Florida's Dwyer High for the Alabama game, including four-star quarterback Jacoby Brissett. Go inside to hear Brissett's take on the weekend in Baton Rouge.

2011 quarterback Jacoby Brissett (Dwyer HS, Palm Beach Gardens, FL) is glad he finally got to see a game in LSU's infamous Death Valley.

The 6-foot-4, 225-pound signal caller says this wasn't just any game, however.  

Brissett says he traveled to Baton Rouge thinking he was in for a treat and left knowing LSU is a special place.

“I had a really good time and it was so fun,” he said. “The atmosphere was crazy and I was glad to learn more about their program.  Les Miles is awesome and I feel like he's just who he is and he won't change. I like that."

Brissett was no stranger to the LSU coaching staff and says they have really kept in touch with him and his Dwyer teammates DE Curt Maggitt and TE Nick O'Leary.  

“I had been talking to the coaches like bi-weekly so it wasn't like we didn't know each other when I got there,” Brissett said. “We watched the game and then we got to meet with them after and they were so excited we were there.  

“They were so happy about the win, but they also took time to talk to us and make us feel cool about being there."

Hosted by wide receiver Russell Shepard, Brissett said he appreciated the perspective of a guy that can do a lot offensively.

“Russell was really cool,” he said. “He played quarterback and he's dual-threat like me, so it was cool to talk to him about all that and what he does in LSU's offense. He was also acting like we were already on the team, so we felt really comfortable and it made it really fun."

As for the atmosphere, Brissett says it couldn't have been any better. Still, he tried to focus on each play to see how he would fit into LSU's 'O.'

“I was paying attention to the game a lot,” he said. “The coaches talked to me about this, but I wanted to see it for myself. They said they use a two-quarterback system to do the things I could do by myself.

“I definitely saw that it could be a good fit for me."

Brissett says there are still no leaders after visits to FSU, Wisconsin and LSU.  He will head to South Bend this weekend to check out what Notre Dame has to offer.

“Notre Dame kind of speaks for itself,” he said. “It has such a great history and everyone knows it's a great place. I'm excited to visit and meet the coaches and everyone.”

Brissett is also planning an official visit to South Carolina in the near future and says he's looking forward to that as well.

In fact, he has been especially impressed with Steve Spurrier thus far.

“I wasn't sure if South Carolina was even going to offer me but when they did it was actually coach Spurrier that talked to me,” Brissett said. “I couldn't believe it.  We talked while he was watching my tape, and he said he wanted to be the one to offer me because he was so impressed. He's so funny.”

Brissett still plans on taking an official visit to Florida State as his previous visit was unofficial. He thinks he will head to Tallahassee for the FSU-Florida showdown on November 27.
