Dwyer senior Jacoby Brissett (right), a star on the football and basketball teams, might announce his college choice at halftime of the hoops game, Dwyer football coach Jack Daniels said Tuesday morning. 

Daniels said he’s still trying to convince Brissett to announce his decision on Signing Day — Wednesday — but he anticipates Brissett will commit at the basketball game. 

“My guess, which is just a guess, is that he does it Friday night,” Daniels said. 

Brissett (6-5, 225, No. 4 on the Big Board) is down to four schools — Florida, Miami, Washington and Wisconsin. 

Daniels said Brissett’s football and basketball teammate Curt Maggitt would “probably sign tomorrow,” on Signing Day. 

“Curt has a good idea of where is going,” Daniels said.

Daniels guessed Tennessee was the favorite to land Maggitt, who visited Knoxville the weekend of Jan. 17.

Tuesday night, several Vols recruiting websites reported Maggitt committed to Tennessee.

Aside from the Vols, Maggitt (6-4, 215, No. 5 on the Big Board) Post’s large schools Defensive Player of the Year, is considering Florida and Wisconsin.

Yesterday, the Orlando Sentinel reported a television special on Maggitt, which was to announce Maggitt’s college choice, was pushed back from Feb. 3 to Feb. 10. No word on if the TV special will still run if Maggitt announces his decision on Signing Day. 

Dwyer’s basketball team (20-2) has been No. 1 in the Post’s top 10 all season. It faces Jupiter (15-5, No. 10 in Post top 10) on Friday, which is Dwyer’s senior night.
