Browning Enjoys Visit Up North

Ever since Folsom, Calif. quarterback Jake Browning's Washington offer was reaffirmed by the new coaching staff, he had wanted to take a visit up to Seattle. He got a chance to do just that over the past three days…

"It was a lot of fun and I had a good time," the 6-3, 201-pound Browning told Sunday when asked about the visit. "I met with the coaches a lot, checked out camp and watched some practices. I got to sit in on some meetings as well."

While Browning was on the visit, he got a chance to meet and talk to some of the current Huskies. While watching practice from the sidelines, Browning noticed something about his possible future teammates.

"They all seemed to be really motivated," Browning said. "They look like they've accepted the new staff with open arms. I got to sit in on a few quarterback meetings as well and both quarterbacks were real good guys."

Before the new coaching staff moved over from Boise State, Browning had formed an exceptional relationship with them. He knew Coach Petersen from his time at Boise State and had a previous relationship with offensive coordinator Jonathan Smith before they both came to Washington.

"I like them both because they seem like genuine and down to earth guys and are football junkies," Browning told

Browning got a chance to tour the new facilities and the new stadium UW boasts and he came away with a short, but telling remark.

"Yeah, both the stadium and facilities are 100 times anything I'll ever need," Browning said laughing.

As his April 11th deadline for a decision approaches, Browning is looking to get out and see a couple more schools. He's not sure when he'll visit, but Browning plans to make trips out to Washington State, Colorado and Oklahoma State before making his decision. For now, he has no leaders. If he feels like he knows where he wants to attend school for the next four years, he says he will announce before his April 11th deadline. But before he announces, he needs to find a school that offers him the three key things he is looking for.

"Chemistry with the head coach, a good offense, and a place that I can see myself living at for five years."
