Brissett Includes UNC In Summer Trips

Looking at his summer schedule a couple of months back, Jacoby Brissett didn't believe he'd have time to take any recruiting trips until the fall. However, he has be able to sneak in a handful of visits.

In the last month, Brissett, a 6-foot-4, 225-pound quarterback from Jupiter (Fla.) Dwyer, has visited Alabama, Florida State, Georgia, North Carolina, Tennessee, and Wisconsin.

"No camps – just running around talking to coaches," Brissett said.

Despite the visits, Brissett, who holds over 20 football scholarship offers, still isn't ready to name favorite schools.

"In a little while I'm going to start narrowing it down," Brissett said. "I'll probably narrow it to ten, but I don't know when, though."

Outside of a trip to South Florida, Brissett doesn't have any future recruiting visits planned. His current focus is Steve Clarkson's Super 7 Camp in Hawaii and then he'll spend most of the rest of the summer with his AAU basketball team.

Although his favorite schools are up-in-the-air, Brissett, who has also received several basketball offers, has a better grasp of his sport situation.

"Wherever I go, I'm going to try to do both [sports] my first year," Brissett said.

Most of the schools that have offered Brissett a scholarship in football have also said he will have a chance to walk onto the basketball team.

Growing up, Brissett dreamed of playing basketball at UNC. Thus, the visit to Chapel Hill roughly a month ago was significant.

"It's a good school," Brissett said. "I liked [the visit] a lot, but everything is still equal with all schools."

Accompanied by teammates Nick O'Leary and Curt Maggitt, Brissett spent approximately a day at UNC. For much of the stay, the trio hung out with UNC's coaches and several players. Brissett spent the most time with John Shoop, UNC's quarterbacks coach.

"We just talked about plays and watched film," Brissett said.

Brissett also met with Butch Davis, individually, in his office.

"He talked about just the school and what I did the night before," Brissett said. "We talked a lot about random stuff."

Additionally, the Dwyer trio were treated to a campus tour.

"It was nice," Brissett said. "But the people there really stood out to me. Everyone seemed friendly and nice."
