‘Canes say no thanks to ex-Gator QB

While we don’t yet to where Jacoby Brissett will transfer, we can likely cross at least one school off the list.

Brissett’s high school coach, Jack Daniels (awesome), told the Miami Herald that the Miami Hurricanes were at the top of his former player’s transfer to-do list.  Unfortunately for the West Palm Beach product, Daniels said, he was informed by The U coaching staff that “they don’t have room for him.”

The Herald explained that the ‘Canes already have five scholarship players on the roster, with another on the way this summer.

Brissett announced a week ago today that he would be transferring from the Florida Gators.  It was originally reported that the favorites to land the former four-star QB were West Virginia, Louisville, Arkansas and North Carolina State, with Mississippi State, Virginia Tech, North Carolina, Duke and Clemson listed as backup possibilities.

Daniels told the Herald that Brissett will now likely choose between North Carolina State and West Virginia.  Wherever Brissett lands, he will be forced to sit out the 2013 season to satisfy NCAA transfer bylaws.

    Golden recruited him hard and Brissett chose to follow his Dwyer boys and listen to the king of Anti-UM recruiting in Jack Daniels and now he wants to come crawling back?

    No thank you. Good luck to you wherever you chose to finish your career.

    Maryland maybe? You can’t possibly be in a good spot at QB if you have to start a Linebacker in an actual game.

    USF could sure use a quarterback. He would probably play as soon he was eligible.

    ND needs a QB desperately.

    FNC111—- ha yeah so do Ohio State and the New England Patriots

    I doubt Clemson has any room for him either.

    We could use him at arkansas…he should look at texas too…and maybe auburn

    FCS get ready. You know you suck if you can’t beat out Jeff Driskell or John Brantley.

    If he can’t beat out what Florida has for a QB, he had better try a FCS school

    *sigh* It’s a shame. Good talent, definitely a BCS caliber QB, just bad timing.

    Last year when we were recruiting him I think we had 2 scholarship QBs. Now we’re up at 5 with a highly rated one (Kevin Olsen) coming in.

    Brissett would at least be the 3rd best QB on the roster, but it would be kinda messed up to push out guys who signed when Brissett chose Florida.

    It’s really a shame his HS coach didn’t have his best interests in mind.

    The Dwyer staff is littered with Gator zombies… certainly they had some influence on his decision. Now this kid has to start all over… new system, new campus, new teammates… and he will always have to live with his failure at UF. Shame on those coaches for not being a better mentor to him.

    Still love how coaches can come and go at a whim while making huge dollars. Meanwhile, the talent, the kids can’t move without losing a year and they still don’t get paid besides maybe a scholarship. But let’s face it, you are training, lifting and studying the playbook so much it is near impossible to really “go to school..” but hey, that’s ok, as long as the kids keep making the universities, boosters, and coaches millions upon millions.

    As a Canes fan you had your chance Golden wanted you badly. Wish him Luck but Miami was the better choice and because of QB play Miami will beat the Gators next year their QB is straight garbage.

    Remember boys and girls, the Gators also let Cam Newton go. Brissett can be a tremendous talent for the right system. Whole lot of knee jerk comments being made on this site.

    “Gators also let Cam Newton go”

    Um, there is a wee bit more to that story…

    Given Meyer’s tendencies to cover up for problem children, the fact that Cam was shown the door says everything that you need to know.

    I think it’s funny how everyone comments that this is a Gator thing. Like every college team uses every QB they have. Hell he could have gone to any number of colleges and ended up being the back up just like the majority of college QB. Miami has 5 QB on their roster. That means there will be 4 in the same predicament as Brissett was at Florida. The only difference with Brissett is that he has enough confidence in his abilities to transfer and try to earn the starting job at another school while most backups stay where they’re at and sit on the side lines.
