Washington Huskies senior QB Jake Browning should be Heisman Trophy contender this upcoming season. This is Browning’s fourth year as the starter and with the possibility of an NFL career ahead of him, Browning needs to shine in 2018.
For his part, it appears as though Browning is ready for the challenge and is already in mid-season form.
Adam Jude of The Seattle Times wrote this about Browning’s performance on Monday:
Browning was as sharp as I’ve seen him in practice, and I’ve seen just about every open practice of his collegiate career (ballpark, that’s 65 practices). He didn’t have a single incompletion Monday, in about 15 pass attempts, during the three team competition periods vs. the No. 1 defense (including a 7-on-7 passing drill).
The 6-foot-1 signal-caller completed 68.5 percent of his passes for 2,719 yards, 19 TDs and 5 INTs in 2017. This year, his last at Washington, he should be the focal point of an offensive attack that will have to lead the Huskies.
