I still have the 6'5", 215-pound Max Browne as the top passer in the country. Browne has been very productive in his high school career and is a gym rat toward the game of football.
He really is outstanding in the pre-snap phase, showing great intelligence in decoding coverages and a command of his offensive scheme. He has a quick release to get the ball downfield in a hurry and has solid arm strength.
Browne knows when to pitch a changeup and when he needs the fastball, but no matter what throw he makes it is usually very accurate and on point. He won't dazzle you as a runner and lack of speed, but he'll elude a rusher and his pocket presence allows him to get out of traffic in the pocket.
He should develop well and become the next great QB at USC.
