USC quarterback Max Browne is set to transfer and teams are reportedly already reaching out to gauge his interest.
Browne, who was the team’s starting quarterback entering the season before being benched following a 1-2 start, is free to transfer to any school in the nation, including the Pac-12.
For Browne, the immediate start to the process means he will be able to start narrowing down options next month.
“It was very quick to be honest,” Browne said about his meeting with head coach Clay Helton. “I went through compliance, then he came up to me and said they’re going to let me go wherever and just find the right fit for me. It wasn’t a super long conversation. Pretty straight forward.
“The next few weeks (I’ll) see who contacts me. Come December (I will) start reaching out to schools that I think will be a good fit, or that I am interested in and see if there’s mutual interest on their end.”
Coming out of college, Browne was the No. 2 quarterback in the class of 2013.
Browne held offers from top programs like Alabama, Auburn, Clemson, Oklahoma, and Washington. It will be interesting to see where he chooses to finish out his college career.
As a graduate transfer, Browne will be eligible to play immediately.
