"It was hectic there for a while," Brown told Dawgman.com recently. "I was getting calls from everyone and I just decided I didn't need to talk to anyone anymore since I was happy with my decision to play for Washington."
In his two seasons as a starter for Vista Murrieta, Brown completed nearly 60% of his passes for over 3,700 yards with 36 touchdowns and 14 interceptions while leading the Broncos to a 26-3 record.
He also was a threat with his legs, running for nearly 2,000 yards and 33 touchdowns during those two years as well.
Since signing with the Huskies in February, Brown said he's mainly focused on working out, running and going to different passing camps, focused on his footwork and staying in shape.
"I work out four or five days a week and sometimes I don't take a break like this week because I'm going to a passing camp over the weekend," Brown said. "For me it's all about muscle-memory and just staying loose and making sure my footwork is good.
"I talk to the (Washington) coaches at least once a week, especially coach Nuss. I know he's a busy man right now though, so I try not to bug him too much."
Brown said he regrets not being able to enroll at Washington early so he could take part in spring football, but he has hopes to take a trip to Seattle in the middle of April to take in a few of the Husky practices.
"My spring break is two weeks, so I'll go up there for a couple of the practices," Brown said. "I'm thinking maybe a full week where I can go to some practices and just hang out and be in that environment.
"I'm just excited to get up there and get started. I'm not expecting to be handed anything, but when I get up there I don't plan on sitting at all. I want to play and I'm going to do everything I can to come in and compete for playing time right away."
We'll have more in the coming weeks as Brown gets closer to heading north permanently to enroll in the LEAP program in early July.
