Talk about your whirlwind romance. Tell you what – one thing you can say about Georgia recruiting these days is that it’s upped its level of aggressiveness significantly.
And no successful Georgia recruiting story would be complete without an Urban Meyer diss.
… But by then, the Buckeyes led for Briscoe. In fact, up until Briscoe announced via Twitter on New Year’s Eve he was going to Georgia, it was thought Columbus would be his ultimate destination.
“I can’t lie, it was hard, just because he’s Urban Meyer,” Briscoe said. “He’s one of the greats. It was hard. But I had to look at what would benefit me in the long run, not just him being Urban Meyer.”
And in the end, it was Georgia that was telling him what he wanted to hear.
“Urban Meyer’s got his track record, but he’s an offensive guy,” Briscoe said. “I’m going to play defense and I want to play for the best. And coach Pruitt, I saw him at Alabama and he did what he did and I saw what he did at Florida State. And I can talk to coach Pruitt about anything and everything.”
I’d like to think “he’s an offensive guy” was meant as some sort of double entendre, but that’s probably expecting too much. Oh, well, take what I can get.
