NC State redshirt junior Jacoby Brissett completed 18-of-32 attempts for 223 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in Saturday's loss to Louisville.
It was good to see the former Florida Gator get back on track. Brissett posted a 13/1 TD/INT ratio during the Wolfpack's 4-1 start, but he'd gone 18-for-48 for one touchdown and one interception in the team's last two losses. ESPN's Todd McShay wrote last month that Brissett "has a lot of Ben Roethlisberger to his game in terms of his poise, pocket presence and how difficult he is for defenders to bring down."

NC State redshirt junior Jacoby Brissett completed 14-of-30 attempts for 174 yards, a touchdown and an interception in Saturday's loss to Boston College.

Well, at least it was better than his 4-for-18-for-35-yard performance in last week's ugly loss to Clemson. In the first five games of the season, the former Florida Gator posted a 13/1 TD/INT ratio, leading ESPN's Todd McShay to write that Brissett "has a lot of Ben Roethlisberger to his game in terms of his poise, pocket presence and how difficult he is for defenders to bring down." Brissett's struggles the past few weeks have removed his name from the lips of draft analysts.

NC State redshirt junior Jacoby Brissett completed 4-of-18 attempts for 35 yards in Saturday's ugly loss to Clemson.

The game pumped the breaks on Brissett's draft stock, which had risen in recent weeks. So far, in fact, that ESPN's Todd McShay wrote last week that Brissett "has a lot of Ben Roethlisberger to his game in terms of his poise, pocket presence and how difficult he is for defenders to bring down." Brissett transferred to NC State from Florida last year. He has another year to iron out the kinks in his game.

NC State redshirt junior Jacoby Brissett "has a lot of Ben Roethlisberger to his game in terms of his poise, pocket presence and how difficult he is for defenders to bring down," according to ESPN's Todd McShay.

"He needs to be quicker in getting from one progression to the next, but I think he sees the entire field well and has good vision as a runner," McShay wrote. The analyst reported that 11 NFL teams scouted Saturday's game against Florida State. Brissett starred in a losing effort, going 32-for-48 for 359 yards and three touchdowns. "He's just a junior and is still a work in progress, but I think he has the physical tools to one day develop into an NFL QB," McShay wrote. "His TD pass in the first half, in which he nearly had his helmet ripped off and then warded off another sack attempt along the right sideline, was one of the more impressive individual efforts I've seen in a long time."

NC State redshirt junior Jacoby Brissett completed 28 of 40 attempts for 291 yards, three touchdowns and one interception in the school's 24-23 win over Georgia Southern.

He added 28 rushing yards. Brissett transferred to NC State from Florida last year, and this was his first start after sitting out a season. His lone interception occurred on a third down after retreating against pressure and overthrowing a receiver along the sideline. Brissett did show a lot of touch on two throws later in the game, however.

NC State HC Dave Doeren said QB transfer Jacoby Brissett was the team's best leader last season, despite the fact he was not eligible to play.

Brissett transferred out of Florida as a junior after it became clear Jeff Driskel would be the current and future starter for the Gators. Brissett, now as a redshirt junior, will be the Wolfpack's starting quarterback this season.

NC State junior QB Jacoby Brissett was one of 76 players named to the preseason Maxwell Award watch list.

You're well acquainted with the headliners of the list: Florida State QB Jameis Winston (Alabama's AJ McCarron upset the Heisman winner in Maxwell voting last year), Oregon QB Marcus Mariota, Ohio State QB Braxton Miller, Georgia RB Todd Gurley and Wisconsin RB Melvin Gordon. Also on the list are two transfer QBs who have never taken a snap for their new teams: Brissett and Alabama's Jacob Coker. Brissett sat out last season after coming over from Florida. Brissett is a pro-style QB with a big arm who has impressed Wolfpack coaches in practice.

Former Florida sophomore QB Jacoby Brissett has decided to transfer to NC State.

Brissett chose NC State over West Virginia. The sophomore will have to sit out the 2013 season due to NCAA transfer regulations. "Jacoby is an NFL-style quarterback with a tremendous arm and great accuracy and he has some of the best hand-eye coordination I’ve ever seen," said Wolfpack head coach Dave Doeren.

Former Florida sophomore QB Jacoby Brissett was scheduled to meet with West Virginia head coach Dana Holgorsen Tuesday night and will decide between the Mountaineers and NC State.

Brissett lost out on the team's quarterback battle after week one of the regular season, but offers plenty of talent to a school willing to accept him. He will have to sit out the 2013 season wherever he ends up transferring to.

The same high school coach, Jack Daniels, announced the likely destinations are now North Carolina State or West Virginia.

Florida sophomore QB Jacoby Brissett has notified the school that he intends to transfer to a different program.

Best writer Jason Lieser cites a source listing West Virginia, Louisville, Arkansas & NC State as the likeliest destinations. Brissett lost out to fellow sophomore Jeff Driskel for the starting quarterback job, so his decision to transfer is understandable.

Florida beat writer Matt Porter was told by a source that sophomore QB Jacoby Brissett is "all-in" for the Gators this season despite losing out on the starting job.

The source adds that Brissett currently has no plans to transfer, but if he does West Virginia and USF are the likeliest landing spots. Fellow sophomore Jeff Driskel has a firm grasp of the starting spot, but Brissett looked competent in the few snaps he played in the opener and has occasionally reentered games this season as a running threat.
