It’s not much — not even a direct quote.
But this story tonight from the Orlando Sun-Sentinel is the most anyone has gotten from QB Jacoby Brissett since taking his visit to Washington the last few days.
In it, Brissett is indirectly quoted as saying that he his final five football schools are Washington, Florida, Florida State, Miami and Wisconsin (though apparently in no particular order).
He also said it’s doubtful that he will make a decision by signing day next Wednesday, so this could be a drama that goes on a while (though Husky fans may hope that an expected in-home from Steve Sarkisian, apparently on Thursday, may speed things up).
Obvioiusly, it’s been a whirlwind few days for Brissett, who played a basketball game last Friday, had a visit at UW beginning Sunday, then returned home Tuesday in time to play a game again Tuesday night.
In another Brissett story tonight, Jamie Newberg of ESPN.com quotes Brissett’s coach, Jack Daniels, and doesn’t include Florida State among his finalists.
Newberg, however, quotes Daniels saying that: “He loves Wisconsin and while I have only talked with Jacoby briefly I know he loved it out in Washington. He got back at [5 p.m. on Tuesday] and went right to a basketball game. Distance is not an issue with him. He travels all over playing AAU basketball.”
Newberg also reports that a decision may not come until after signing day.
Miami hoops coach Frank Haith, meanwhile, said he’d welcome Brissett onto the basketball team there.
For now, that appears to be it on the Brissett front.

But he also seems to indicate Forcier may be more apt to drop down a level where he’d be able to play immediately.
