North Carolina wide receiver Josh Briscoe is widely considered to be one of the top skill position players in his class. Despite the offers and mail that have been pouring in, Briscoe hasn't flinched and isn't beginning to narrow his list.
"I'm totally wide open at this point," said Briscoe. "By that I mean I'll consider any school that will consider me. Location isn't going to be a factor in my decision at all. If I fall in love with a school in California, Hawaii, Germany -- anywhere," he laughed. "I'll do it."
The 6-foot-3, 170-pound receiver from Lawndale (N.C.) Burns runs the 40-yard dash in 4.4 seconds and is already a member of the Rivals100 team for 2005. What does he think about the local schools?
"North Carolina was recruiting me, but they haven't shown any interest in the past two or three months, so draw your own conclusions on that," he said. "I'm looking at NC State and Duke, and both of those schools have offered me. But like I said, I'm not limiting this to a local thing. I haven't had time to break anything down, like weigh the pros and cons of each, you know? I'm going to be listening to schools from all over the country."
Briscoe doesn't plan on making a decision any time soon.
"I'm going to ride this recruiting process out as long as I can," he said. "I'm not going to feel rushed at all. You can expect me to wait until closer to Signing Day."
