Perfect Timing

With him and his teammates the unquestioned VIPs of the Wisconsin coaching staff, Jacoby Brissett was expecting a great atmosphere and a great college football game. What he got, however, could change his recruitment.

MADISON - 2011 quarterback Jacoby Brissett (Dwyer HS, Palm Beach Gardens, FL) is fresh off a visit to Badger country and says he had "the time of his life" in Wisconsin.

Of course, 6-foot-4, 225-pound Brissett says it didn't hurt that Wisconsin put a beating on then first ranked Ohio State. Still, he says he enjoyed more than just the big win.

"ESPN Gameday was so fun," Brissett told Badger Nation. "I think Erin Andrews smiled at me so that was crazy. The atmosphere was ridiculous before the game and during the game and after, too. After they won, all the Wisconsin people stormed the field so we couldn't even find any coaches or anything until like an hour later but it was so fun. Nick (O'Leary) and I don't normally get into things that much but we were fist pumping and jumping around in the stadium like crazy."

The Dwyer boys - Brissett and his two teammates TE Nick O'Leary and DE Curt Maggitt made the trip as a trio. Brissett says all three had an "amazing" time together.

"We always have fun together so that's why we want to go somewhere together to play," Brissett said. "But at Wisconsin we had fun with the coaches and players, too, so that was cool. The coaches were with us like the whole time and gave us a lot of attention."

Brissett acknowledges the importance of choosing an offense that fits his play-style regardless of where O'Leary and Maggitt decide to play on the next level. He says the Badgers' offense looks like his ideal situation.

"I think that offense is perfect," Brissett said. "They called all the right plays at the right time and I could really see myself fitting well with that. I could see myself there."

Brissett says he canceled his official visit to North Carolina but still plans on heading to LSU on November 6th with O'Leary and Maggitt.

"We are real excited about LSU," he said. "We like what they do and it could be a chance for all of us to play in the SEC together. I think Curt may end up at either Alabama or Florida but Nick and I are really looking to stay together if we can. I am also going to take a visit to South Carolina and then FSU again."

As for Florida State, Brissett says he's seeing all the right things from the Seminoles.

"Their coaches talk to me a lot and tell me they still really want me in this class," he said. "I know Nick likes FSU so that factors in, too. That school could be great because I could stay in Florida, which might be nice, and they told me they need a good quarterback after E.J Manual and they said it would be me."

Brissett says Stanford recently offered as well and he is intrigued by its offense. In the meantime, he plans to sit back and reflect on his visit to UW while looking forward to seeing what some other schools have to offer.
