Skyline’s Browne to announce Wednesday

Mason Kelley, the Times’ high school sports coordinator, is among those reporting that Skyline High QB Max Browne — the top football prospect in the state for the Class of 2013 and among the best in the nation — will announce his choice of college on Wednesday. Here’s Kelley’s blog post on Browne’s pending announcement (updated since I first posted this with quotes from Browne).

Both Scout.com and Rivals.com rate Browne as the No. 1 QB prospect in the country.

The sites list Browne as still considering a number of schools, including Washington, though schools such as USC and Oklahoma are also making heavy runs at Browne — he spent three days last weekend visiting USC, which may be emerging as the favorite.

Greg Biggins of Scout.com just tweeted, in fact, that the feeling on Browne is that “it will be a pretty big surprise if he doesn’t choose USC.”

It hadn’t been known Browne was this close to making a decision. But looks like he’s made his choice and wants to get it done early. That’ll put a quick end to the drama surrounding the top recruit in the state, unlike a year ago when guys such as Josh Garnett and Zach Banner waited until the final weeks.

As I detailed in this blog post a couple months ago, this year’s class of in-state recruits isn’t regarded as having as many top-flight players as the past few seasons. Browne is the only one who is considered a top 100 national recruit at the moment.
