2012 QB getting plenty of looks

Houston (Texas) Second Baptist quarterback Jeremiah Briscoe has already been high on the radar of a few out-of-state programs, and now it looks like Texas Tech will soon be stepping into the mix.

"So far I've been talking with Ole Miss, LSU, Baylor, Texas A&M, and Boise state the most," Briscoe said. "I have been talking with Texas Tech some now also. The Tech coaches told me they were going to come down sometime in December to sit down and talk with me, just get to know me. I don't know a whole lot about them, but I'm interested in seeing what they have to say."

"I've been visiting with Coach Tommy Mainord. He seems like a pretty cool guy, but I haven't gotten to know him really well yet. I know a couple of other guys who have had some experience with the coaches at Tech and they've been really high on them, so we'll see it goes."

Briscoe is only in the beginning stages of his recruitment, but he's already developed a pretty close relationship with a couple of schools out of the SEC.

"I've taken visits to Ole Miss twice this year and I really liked it a lot. I want to try and get back there. I really liked LSU when I visited out there also," he said. "I'd like to try and get up to visit Boise State and Washington, if I have a chance, to get a feel for both of those."

Although the attention for the 6-foot-3, 197-pounder has come mostly from outside the State of Texas so far, leaving the state is not something that is a priority for Briscoe.

"I'd actually really like to stay in state, but I don't know if I'll get to. Baylor and A&M are really the only schools in-state that have been recruiting me really hard," he said. "Texas Tech has entered the picture now, so we'll see what happens. Hopefully I'll have some good opportunities in Texas, but who knows how it will work out. I really liked Ole Miss and LSU a lot, but I think that's about as far as I'd be willing to go away from Texas."

Briscoe currently holds an offer from Baylor, and has been shown interest by Boise State, LSU, Ole Miss, Oklahoma, Texas, Texas, A&M, Texas Tech, and Washington.
