Chris Petersen confirms top quarterback recruit Jake Browning has signed with the Huskies

Jake Browning, one of the nation’s top quarterback recruits, has signed financial-aid paperwork with Washington and will enroll in classes early next year, UW coach Chris Petersen said.

“Really, really excited about that and getting him in here mid-year,” Petersen said.

Browning, a senior at Folsom (Calif.) High School, told The Seattle Times earlier this year that he had planned to enroll at UW in January.

Signing recruits to a financial-aid agreement is a growing trend in college football after the NCAA issued a new interpretation of a rule last year. Under that interpretation, high school seniors can sign with a school beginning Aug. 1 of their senior year and enroll at the college before the traditional February national signing day.

Browning, 6 feet 2 and 205 pounds, is ranked as the No. 5 quarterback prospect by ESPN.

Browning, whose father, Ed, was a former quarterback at Oregon State, was the California Gatorade Player of the Year last season. He was also named the MaxPreps National Junior Player of the Year after throwing for 5,737 yards, with 75 touchdowns and 17 interceptions to lead Folsom to a 14-1 season.

Earlier this month, Browning became the career passing leader in California prep history.
