Brissett has narrowed his choices down to West Virginia, Louisville, Arkansas, N.C. State and Duke. Brissett has started three games in two seasons, completing 41-of-74 passes for 455 yards with three touchdowns and four interceptions.
A recruit out of Palm Beach Gardens, Fla., Brissett was a three-star recruit in the class of 2011 according to ESPN, rated a 78 overall. At 6-foot-4 and 220 lbs., he was also recruited by Alabama, Miami, North Carolina, Wisconsin and Washington.
According to his scouting profile, Brissett is a strong pocket passer with very good arm strength and the physical tools to be a successful quarterback.
Sophomore Anthony Boone and redshirt freshman Thomas Sirk figure to battle for the starting position next year if Brissett does not come to Durham.
