Well, it looks as if some of the other reports referenced here and elsewhere yesterday may have been premature.
In his first public statement on the issue in a day or two, the coach for QB Jacoby Brissett, Jack Daniels, told the Palm Beach Post that Brissett is down to three schools — Miami, Wisconsin and Washington. The kicker is that he is unlikely to make an announcement until a basketball game Friday night.
There were Tweets and chat room statements and other varying reports yesterday that Washington was no longer in the Brissett sweepstakes. But again, his coach is saying today the Huskies are one of the schools still being considered.
So for now, consider Washington back in it, even if it seems the conventional wisdom is still that he’s likely to pick one of the other two — Miami is the closest, Wisconsin has been recruiting him the longest.
