** What can Brown do for you? … Ohio State scored a nice coup earlier this week when Utah quarterback Devin Brown verballed to the Buckeyes.

Brown had been a USC commit previously, but de-committed once Clay Helton was fired. When Lincoln Riley was hired as the new USC coach and was bringing his own 2023 QB verbal (Malachi Nelson) with him from Oklahoma, that was the last piece of the puzzle for Brown, who visited Ohio State and loved it.

The 6-foot-3, 189-pound Brown is ranked as the nation’s No. 52 overall prospect and No. 5 quarterback in the 2022 class, according to the 247Sports Composite. Our Mark Porter did an awesome breakdown of Brown you can see here.

“Brown shows he can make all of the throws, certainly,” our guy said. “He has great pocket awareness and effortlessly moves side to side and front to back as needed to keep plays alive. He is similar to C.J. Stroud in that regard. You have to like the touch and the feel he puts on some of his intermediate to deep passes. He seems to put the ball only where his guy can get it.

“You hear the phrase ‘throwing his man open.’ That’s what Brown does. There is one play where his receiver is not yet behind the DB when he throws it. But he has confidence he will get there and he leads him past the DB for a big play. He has good drive on his out passes, which are bread-and-butter type plays late in games or when you have to move the sticks.

“Moreover, with Jack Miller leaving and who knows what the future holds for Kyle McCord or Quinn Ewers, it is a great move to continue recruiting quarterbacks and maintaining that depth at the position. This guy could be the starter in 2023 if the others don’t stick around.”

Then he added: “OK, who should I be looking at for 2023?”
