Focus 2013: QB Max Browne

The Sammamish (Wash.) Skyline quarterback, Max Browne, will be one of the top 2013 passers in the West, and UCLA is a school he's hearing from...

Sammamish (Wash.) Skyline quarterback Max Browne (6-4.5, 196) had big shoes to fill as a sophomore, replacing Scout.com's #1-quarterback from the 2010 class, Jake Heaps, who started as a true freshman at BYU.

While Browne fell short in leading the Spartans to a 4th straight state title, losing in the finals, he threw for over 4,000 yards and showed that he's a name to remember in the 2013 class.

With an offer already from Washington, Browne's mailbox is beginning to fill up with other schools.

"All the letters are coming from around the country," said Browne. "Basically Boston College, Arkansas, UCLA and Wisconsin have been writing me. I hope some more offers come, but I'm not really sure. I've got some time."

Browne said he's gone into the process without any schools of focus.

"Honestly, I never had a team growing up," said Browne. "When I played NCAA, I always switched teams. I was never a Husky or a Cougar, which is probably a good thing so I don't show a bias. I'm just trying to be open minded. I have a game plan. To open up things my sophomore year and take a few trips and see what I like."

He's planning a couple of camps, though they've not been set yet.

"I'm not sure where I'm going to camp this year, but I know I'm going to a couple," said Browne. "I did UCLA and Washington camps last year, and I'm hoping to do a few more, plus passing league with Skyline."

Academically, Browne has a 3.6 and has taken the PSAT.
