FSU football coaches are currently without a quarterback commit for the 2023 recruiting cycle.
Four-star QB Brock Glenn committed to Ohio State Saturday, but the coaches already had a potential target on campus in Ryan Browne to work out at one of the biggest recruiting events this year.
He was literally working out when Glenn made his commitment, but it didn’t take long for him to appear on everyone’s radar when footage of him throwing made its way to social media. However, Browne has been steadily grinding and competing for an opportunity well before Saturday’s stop at FSU.
He placed No. 1 at the Elite 11 Orlando Regional’s athletic testing competition(94.98) last year, placing just a few points shy of five-star Texas A&M signee Conner Weigman’s score of 99.03 from the Houston Regional.
The three-star prospect spoke with Chop Chat about his journey, his experience on campus at FSU, and what’s next.
Chop Chat: Ryan, you popped up on the radar of FSU fans while on campus Saturday. Most will fans won’t take the time to look at the footage and wonder why you only have a handful of offers right now. Why do you think folks have been so slow with offers? Just a matter of exposure?
Ryan Browne: Well, I was behind a senior my sophomore year in Michigan. I moved down here and split time my junior year. My senior year was my first year where I was really the guy and got to show what I could do. Obviously had a great year and chose to go into prep coming off of the film and stats I put out. I think people found me when they already had 22s, and people had 23s ahead of me at the time I reclassified.
Chop Chat: Makes sense. What other schools have started pursuing you?
Ryan Browne: I’m hearing from Florida State, but schools I’m hearing from outside of my current offers right now are Wisconsin and Purdue. I have also spoken with Boston College, Michigan State, and Penn State recently.
