The Palm Beach Post has reported that former Florida Gators quarterback Jacoby Brissett will transfer to North Carolina State.
NC State recently hired Dave Doeren to replace fired coach Danny O’Brien, and it looks as if Doeren has already pulled off a large coup in luring the 6-foot-5, dual-threat quarterback to Raleigh.
Brissett had reportedly narrowed a list of nine schools down to West Virginia and NC State, before picking the Wolfpack.
Brissett was thrown into the fire in his freshman season following an injury to senior John Brantley, however he was beat out in year two by fellow classmate Jeff Driskel.
Despite losing the starting job, it was the common belief among Florida Gators fans that Brissett and Driskel were of equal talent.
Brissett will have to sit out a year due to NCAA transfer rules, but will have two years of eligibility remaining once he is available to play in 2014.
