Timpview High quarterback Trevor Brown is the latest in a list of football players to give Utah State coach Gary Andersen a verbal commitment to sign with the Aggies.
Brown, who led the Thunderbirds to the 4A championship, told the Deseret News Monday night he will sign with USU rather than accept a preferred walk-on offer from BYU or Louisiana State.
“I actually made an official visit to BYU this weekend,” Brown said. “But the whole time I was sitting there, I just wasn’t getting the right feeling that it was the right place for me.”
Instead, he decided Logan was that place.
“Every time I’ve been up to Utah State,” he said, “I always got the feeling that it was the place for me … I’m excited to be a Utah State Aggie.”
Brown rushed for 854 yards and 17 touchdowns for the T-Birds, while passing for another 2,185 yards and 23 touchdowns.
The all-state player said he intends to serve an LDS mission before he enrolls in college, meaning he will not be a part of the USU roster for another two or three years. USU has already received verbal commitments from another pair of high school quarterbacks, Jordan’s Alex Hart and Hawaii product Jeremy Higgins.
“They’re taking something that was really depressed,” Brown said of the USU coaching staff, “and they’re quickly building something special.”
Brown said he had also received a scholarship offer from Southern Utah as well as significant interest from Kansas, which just signed Snow College and former Timpview quarterback Quinn Mecham.
