Rated a five-star prospect by Scout.com, Schaeffer has narrowed his list to three schools and will announce at 6:00 EST. NC State, Ole Miss, and Wisconsin are the three finalists for his services.
Leading the nation's top junior college offense, the 6-foot-3, 200-pound dual-threat passer was the key cog in the COS's offensive attack.
"We had the No. 1 offense in the nation," said COS offensive coordinator Andy Siegal. "We averaged 42 points and over 500 yards of total offense, and Brent was a big part of it all. He threw for 42 touchdowns and rushed for eight or nine more. He's been named Valley Conference Player of the Year, Regional Player of the Year, California Player of the Year, and I think they said he's going to be national Player of the Year. He was a unanimous All-American, so obviously he was very important."

Schaeffer has garnered offers from NC State, Ole Miss, Wisconsin, Kansas State, and Virginia Tech among others but recently narrowed his list to the Wolfpack, Rebels, and Badgers.
He originally inked with Tennessee out of high school but transferred out of the program last season. He enrolled at COS where he played as a sophomore, and he will have three years to play two seasons at the college of his choice.
"I learned a lot from my time at Tennessee," said Schaeffer. "I took on a lot of adversity and am just working hard now at everything. I want to become a more complete quarterback."
Pack Pride will have exclusive coverage including quotes and photos of Schaeffer's press conference.
