Quarterback Max Browne has been patiently waiting his turn while Cody Kessler runs this USC offense. But Browne was put in a game-like situation on Thursday when Kessler missed practice and Steve Sarkisian did not tell anyone. It simulated an injury to Kessler and Browne, without prior notice, was given the keys to the offense and ran with the first team.
Browne also talks about freshman quarterback Ricky Town and his decision to transfer out of USC and into the Arkansas program.
As a redshirt sophomore, Max Browne would have two years of eligibility remaining to start for the Trojans, and he looks more than ready to do just that. The former five-star is capable of running this high powered offense and he could see more playing time this year. Sarkisian has said that he wanted to give Browne meaningful reps in games and not just mop-up duty.
