Huskies Get Their Man (UPDATED)

Folsom (Ca.) QB Jake Browning, rated the seventh-best quarterback in the 2015 class by, made the decision to become a Husky on Monday and spoke with about why he moved his decision-date up as well as why Washington was the right fit for him...

"The coaching staff was a big reason for me. I just felt like I fit in real well with what they were looking for from their quarterback and I really like coach (Chris) Petersen and coach (Jonathan) Smith a lot," Browning told "I also think it's an amazing university and I loved the city of Seattle a lot. It's a place I could see myself living in after school is over."

Browning had initially been adamant about making his decision on April 11th, but said he just felt like it was the right time to make his decision.

"When you know what you want to do, you just do it and get it over with," Browning said. "I took my visits and saw the schools I wanted to see and I just felt like Washington was the right place and I knew I wanted to get it done so I could focus on my senior season."

"Getting my decision out of the way helps me turn the focus to making sure I have the right classes so I can finish up and get up there after I graduate in December," Browning noted.
