2012 QB getting serious attention

Houston (Texas) Second Baptist High quarterback Jeremiah Briscoe is quickly becoming one of the states most sought after signal callers of the 2012 class. He recently picked up his first offer and has been getting attention from schools all over the country. Read the LonghornDigest update below for the inside scoop.

Houston (Texas) Second Baptist High quarterback Jeremiah Briscoe will likely be one of the big names for the 2012 recruiting class in the state of Texas. The 6-foot-4, 190-pound signal caller has already landed his first scholarship offer and has yet to start a single game for his high school. Several other big-time schools have also been expressing interest.

"I got my first offer from Baylor about three weeks ago, they offered me right after their camp," said Briscoe.

In addition to attending the camp at Baylor, the Houston signal caller also camped at Oklahoma, Texas A&M as well as the Longhorns camp in Austin last month. Briscoe enjoyed his time at the Texas camp and had good things to say about his experience and the Longhorns coaching staff.

"It was awesome, I loved it. I spent most of the weekend with coach Davis and I got to meet coach Applewhite too. They said I really stood out and they liked it, and they said what they do is let the 2011 class have their full year of having their offer and they don't offer anyone from the 2012 class until February. They said as soon as the season starts for me to send them film from my first few games and we will start the process early."

Briscoe is entering his junior season as the starting quarterback for the first time. The past two seasons he was backing up former Second Baptist High and current freshman Longhorn quarterback Connor Wood.

There are a few aspects of his the Houston prospects game that he will be trying to improve on this summer before the start of his junior season.

"I want to gain another five pounds or so by the start of the season and probably get my foot speed and agility up a little bit, those are two things I definitely need to work on."

Briscoe plans on heading over to Baton Rouge later this month to participate in LSU's football camp. He currently is wide-open in his recruitment, but two schools have been recruiting him harder than anyone else at this point.

"Baylor was recruiting me the hardest by far, but right now I'd probably have to say Texas is my number two, I've had a lot of contact with them."

Coach (Oscar) Giles (Defensive ends coach) is in charge of Briscoe's recruitment. Stick with LonghornDigest for the latest on Briscoe.
