Max Browne (born February 2, 1995) is a college football player. He is a quarterback for the University of Southern California Trojans of the Pacific-12 Conference. He committed to USC on April 4, 2012, during his junior year,[1][2] and was considered the best quarterback recruit of his class by Rivals.com and Scout.com.[3][4]

Early years[edit]

Born and raised in Sammamish, Washington, a suburb east of Seattle, Browne attended Beaver Lake Middle School and Skyline High School in Sammamish. During his high school career, he completed 73.5 percent of his passes for 12,951 yards and 146 touchdowns.[5][6] He was the Gatorade Player of the Year for Washington in 2011 and 2012,[7][8] and led the Spartans to three straight Class 4A state finals, winning the final two.

Following his senior season, Browne participated in the 2013 U.S. Army All-American Bowl and was awarded the prestigious Hall Trophy as U.S. Army Player of the Year.

College career[edit]

Browne redshirted the 2013 USC season after not beating out Cody Kessler or Max Wittek for the starting job.

Following the hiring of Washington coach Steve Sarkisian, Browne had the opportunity to battle Kessler and Jalen Greene for the 2014 starting job, but failed to do so. He served as backup to Kessler.
