Utah State is on a roll when it comes to signing in-state quarterbacks.
Trevor Brown, who led perennial power Timpview to a fourth 4A state championship last December, is the latest to give the Aggies a verbal commitment. Jordan’s Alex Hart did the same last month.
BYU and LSU only offered Brown preferred walk-on status, while Kansas showed interest and Southern Utah offered a full-ride.
USU will have to wait, though.
Brown intends to serve a two-year LDS mission before enrolling at USU, which, in addition to Hart, also has a commitment from Hawaii product Jeremy Higgins, the younger brother of current Weber State signal-caller Cameron Higgins.
Brown rushed for 854 yards and 17 touchdowns for the Thunderbirds, while passing for another 2,185 yards and 23 touchdowns.
MORE RECRUITING: Cottonwood DB Kyle Aberton will sign with Yale University. The two-year starter and team captain totaled 23 pass deflections and 151 tackles in his career, helping the Colts reach the state finals in 2008. Offers from Navy and Dartmouth were on the table. … Park City lineman Cash Knight committed to play for Weber State. He was an all-state selection and helped Park City advance to the 3A semifinals. He had scholarship offers from Southern Utah and Eastern Washington and had been offered a preferred walk-on spot at BYU, where his dad Shawn played in the 1980s.
