UF adds to 2011 recruiting class with Brissett

The University of Florida added a 12th signee to its 2011 recruiting class, in addition to its seven January enrollees, with the signing of West Palm Beach Dwyer quarterback Jacoby Brissett.

The four-star player, rated the No. 3 quarterback in the nation, announced his decision on Friday and UF received a faxed National Letter of Intent Monday.

“Jacoby will be a good fit in our program,” said head coach Will Muschamp. “He is an outstanding quarterback and we are excited to have him join the Gator family.”
