The No. 1 rated high school football prospect in Utah is off the board.
Corner Canyon Chargers quarterback Devin Brown, a four-star prospect according to 247 Sports’ Composite rating, is headed to Ohio State to continue his football career.
A longtime USC pledge — he decommitted on Nov. 24 — Brown announced on Instagram Wednesday afternoon that he has committed to the Buckeyes.
Considered the fifth-best quarterback prospect in the country and a Top 100 prospect overall (No. 52 in the country), the 6-foot-3, 189 pound Brown had offers from a host of notable programs, including Texas and Ole Miss.
As a senior this season, Brown had one of the more explosive seasons by any Utah quarterback.
According to the Deseret News’ statistical database, he led all quarterbacks in passing yards with 4,809 (nearly a thousand more than the next best quarterback), averaging 343.5 yards per game.
He also threw for more touchdowns than anyone else, with 56, averaging four touchdown passes a game.
Brown transferred to Corner Canyon in the summer from Arizona, before taking part in the prestigious Elite 11 event, one of the top quarterback competitions nationwide.
