Briscoe Commits to the Canes

Last month, Carencro (La.) defensive lineman Jacoby Briscoe said he was "still waiting" for things to happen with his recruitment. Within a couple of weeks, the Miami Hurricanes went after the 6-foot-4, 290-pounder, who committed today during an in-home visit.

"The Miami coaches asked me what they would need to show me on an official visit for me to commit," said Jacoby Briscoe, the three-star defensive lineman from Carencro.

"I told them they wouldn't need to show me anything. I've been wanting to become a Hurricane since I was seven years old."

Miami head coach Al Golden spent a season on the staff of the New England Patriots.

"I told coach that I want to play for Miami and then the Patriots," stated Briscoe. "He said that was so cool. Then he told me to stand up and hug him; he said it was official: they had offered and I committed.

"When I first talked to one of their coaches, he asked what I thought of Miami. I told him Miami was my dream school. He then said they were going to make my dream come true."

Briscoe will visit Miami on January 20th.

Shortly after his commitment went public, Texas A&M called.

"Coach (Terrell) Williams offered," said Briscoe of the Aggies' defensive line coach.

Briscoe led the Carencro Bears to the Class 5A state finals in 2011. He played defensive end as a senior under head coach Brent Indest but could move to tackle on the next level. Recommended Stories
