The following information was revealed during our interview with Brent Schaeffer's mother:
you hear about Ole Miss' new hire at offensive coordinator? "Yes, I sure
did. I thought it was a good hire. With us being from Florida, we know all about
What did Brent say about the hire? "He did not say much.
He just said he would like to sit down and talk to him. He did say he knew him
when he was at Miami. He has watched Miami, of course, for a long time."
Miami recruit Brent out of high school? "Yes, but they recruited him as an
athlete, so he kind of shied away from them."
I hear Virginia Tech
is making a strong push to sign Brent; is this true? "Yea, they have called
and come by (the house), but he has not set up (an official visit) or anything
Is Ole Miss still Brent's only official visit scheduled
for this month? "Yes, that is all that I know of. He said he can not wait
to see Ole Miss' campus even if they would not have had an offensive coordinator
in place. We called coach Hughes today, and he let us know that the rumors were
true, that they hired Miami's offensive coordinator. He briefed us on what they
wanted to run. We will get a better grasp on what their schemes are going to be
like when we come over there this weekend."
Brent is scheduled to
graduate in May and will have 3 to play 2."
