It looks like Charlie Weis’ meeting with West Palm Beach Dwyer quarterback Jacoby Brissett Friday certainly went well. The U.S. Army All-American showed up in Gainesville Saturday and was in attendance for the South Carolina game.
The 6-foot-5, 225-pound prospect was seen in a Gators sweatshirt with Weis at the game. Weis was also posing with fans for pictures.
South Carolina is also a school Brissett is heavily considering, and he’s friends with Gamecocks guard Ramon Galloway, who attended Dwyer.
Brissett also plays basketball at Dwyer and has talked about playing both sports in college. I’m not sure if he will do the same in college — no matter where he goes — but that hasn’t exactly worked out in Gainesville in the past.
The Palm Beach Post reported Friday night that Brissett was officially offered a scholarship by new coach Will Muschamp. Former coach Urban Meyer showed little interest in Brissett and only offered him a greyshirt opportunity, meaning Brissett would have had to pay his own way at Florida during his first semester.
Brissett said at the the Army Bowl he’d be willing to officially visit Florida if the Gators offer. We’ll see if that holds true now that he’s got one.
