Former Florida quarterback Jacoby Brissett has made the decision to transfer to NC State.

With just two scholarship quarterbacks on the roster, NC State was in dire need of talented depth at that position. The Wolfpack got a huge shot in the arm on Wednesday when former Florida QB Jacoby Brissett made the decision to transfer to NC State after visiting both the Wolfpack and West Virginia this past weekend. The news was first broke by The Palm Beach Post and confirmed by Pack Pride earlier this evening.

After sitting out the 2013 season, Brissett will have two years of eligibility remaining with the Pack.
After being heavily recruited by Wolfpack head coach Dave Doeren while at Wisconsin, Brissett originally committed to Florida over offers from Florida State, Tennessee, Miami and South Carolina among others. Scout.com rated him a four-star prospect and the No. 9 quarterback in the nation and Brissett was selected to the US Army All-American Bowl.

As a true freshman, Brissett started two games for the Gators, facing LSU and Auburn in back to back weeks. In all, Brissett appeared in seven games and completed 18 of 39 passes for 206 yards while adding two rushing touchdowns.

This past season, Brissett appeared in three games- completing 23 of 35 passes for 249 yards and a touchdown. He also added one rushing score.
