08:56 AM ET 01.13 | Miami feels so good about quarterback that it quietly rejected recent overtures from the Gators' 2012 opening day starter. West Palm Beach Dwyer coach Jack Daniels said UM was the "top choice" of Jacoby Brissett, who is transferring from UF, but the Hurricanes informed him "they don't have room for him" because they have five quarterbacks on scholarship and a sixth (Kevin Olsen) arriving this summer. Brissett, rated the third-best duel purpose QB and 75th player overall in the 2011 class, completed 23 of 35 passes for 249 yards in 2012. He started the season opener against Bowling Green but was replaced after a quarter, replaced an injured Jeff Driskel and helped rally UF to avoid an upset loss against Louisiana-Lafayette, then started against Jacksonville State and threw for just 154 yards. He then lost the job to Driskel, decided to transfer, and likely will pick between North Carolina State and West Virginia, Daniels said.

Reading is not a requirement at a D1 party school.

He (or those close to and advising him) should've made note of the roster situation prior to putting his mouth in gear, and recognized that this ain't exactly a place that's begging for QBs (nor is it a place to hook your wagon for the next, ohh, 3 or so years).


Not a very bright move from the get-go. He was a capable backup for UF, but the more things I hear about this kid, the more I'm OK with him moving on down the road, no disrespect intended.

I think our Badger friends have taken care of their temporary qb shortage. However, with the former Head Badger now residing in Fayetteville, perhaps Arkansas is a possibility.

The headline is misleading and and too many fell for it....LOL UM will have six QB's when the summer starts, there is no period. How can you get rejected when there is no room to begin with?
