Cougs offer Class of 2015 QB

WASHINGTON STATE IS wasting no time in recruiting their quarterback for the Class of 2015. On Tuesday morning, Mike Leach offered a third quarterback in the '15 class. And all he did in a prolific sophomore season was break both local and national prep QB records. He already holds a couple offers but tells CF.C that Wazzu left quite an impression during an unofficial visit out on the Palouse.

2015 quarterback Jake Browning (6-2, 185) out of Folsom, Calif. was hoping it would turn out this way.

"I really liked Pullman a lot," Browning said. "I like the coaches and I have a lot of interest (in Washington State.)"

Browning left Pullman Monday night after unofficially visiting WSU this weekend, and said the coaches waited to offer him until this morning because he's an underclassman.

Browning is on a grand tour this week, he'll be in Seattle visiting the UW for the next few days and didn't have much time to talk, but he did offer his view on the atmosphere at WSU.

"It's a college town and I like how everything seems to revolve around the university," Browning said.

BROWNING IS SETTING up to be a hot commodity in the 2015 recruiting cycle. He already owns three Northern California records, and he's only played through his sophomore season.

The 2012 season saw Browning throw more yards and more touchdowns than any Northern California quarterback -- ever.

As a sophomore, the Folsom High product threw for 5,248 yards and 63 touchdowns -- breaking both NorCal marks.

It doesn't end there.

In his varsity debut, Browning threw for a national record 10 touchdown passes in a 68-28 drubbing of Woodcreek High.

Browning's 689 passing yards from that game is the second most all-time nationally, and the most since 1999.

With two seasons to go before his prep days are over, more state and local records would seem likely to fall.

His dad, Ed Browning, was a quarterback at Oregon State.
