USC lands a commitment from the top quarterback prospect in the country.
Max Browne, one of the top quarterbacks in the country, committed to the USC Trojans over the Oklahoma Sooners during a ceremony at his school. Browne stars for Sammamish (Wa.) Skyline High School. Browne also holds offers from Alabama, Arizona St., Auburn, California, Clemson, Colorado, Oregon St., Utah, Washington and Wisconsin.
The 6'5", 205-pound Browne is a consensus five-star recruit and considered by many to be the top quarterback recruit in the country. Browne is a prototypical pocket passer. He has plenty of arm strength to fit the ball into tight spaces and make all the throws. He also shows excellent touch and feel for the precision throws and timing routes. And while Brown is not going to make a lot of people miss in college, he is not completely immobile, either.
Browne is the third commitment of USC's 2013 class, which is shaping up to be one of the best in the country despite its small size. He plans to enroll in January, which should allow him to compete immediately for the starting job vacated by Matt Barkley.
