Found January 07, 2013 on The Cardinal Connect:
At this time last year, Charlie Strong landed two transfers from the University of Florida. Tight end Gerald Christian and wide receive Robert Clark started their career as Gators, but decided to finish their career at Louisville. Both players will be eligible next season. Jacoby Brissett, a 6-foot-4 sophomore quarterback announced over the weekend that he will transfer from Florida. He says Louisville will be a school he considers. NC State, Duke, Arkansas and West Virginia are also on his list. With Louisville bringing back Heisman hopeful Teddy Bridgewater and welcoming in two quarterbacks in the 2013 class, I’m not sure how Brissett fits. With that said, he has talent that’d be tough to turn away. Brissett was a four-star member of UF’s 2011 recruiting class, rated by Rivals.com as the No. 3 dual-threat quarterback in the country. He will have to sit out the 2013 season to satisfy NCAA transfer rules and will have two years of eligibility remaining beginning in 2014.
