Brissett picks Florida, Badgers add Hammon

Jacoby Brissett announced Friday night that he will attend the University of Florida next season.

He had yet to fax his letter of intent to Florida, but said he was going to do that Saturday. According to multiple stories written Friday night, Brissett's mother was not happy with the decision. She wanted her son to go Miami.

The Badgers were in the hunt for Brissett from start to finish, but both Florida and Miami made late pushes for the quarterback after each school hired new coaches. New Florida offensive coordinator Charlie Weis reportedly made a good impression on Brissett.

UW head coach Bret Bielema announced his 17-man recruiting class Wednesday and said there were two other players that could still be added. He indicated the Badgers would move on with the current number of 17 if those players did not sign.

As it became clear Friday that Brissett was not coming to Madison, the Badgers announced the signing of Milton quarterback Nate Hammon, who was reportedly given an offer by the Badgers Tuesday.
