Three-star quarterback Devin Brown committed to USC football’s 2022 recruiting class.
USC football’s lengthy commitment drought has finally come to an end.
On Saturday, the Trojans locked up the pledge of three-star quarterback Devin Brown.
He’s the second commit for USC in the class of 2022 and the first in any sense since July.
“Beyond excited to announce my commitment to The University of Southern California!,” Brown wrote on Twitter. “Fight on!”
Devin Brown could help build a tradition of USC football QBs from AZ.
Back on Sept. 1, Brown called it a “surreal morning” when he received a scholarship offer from the Trojans. Now he’s a USC commit.
It’s fitting Brown used a photo of Kedon Slovis in his Twitter post announcing the offer. He is a similar type of prospect out of Arizona.
The three-star pro-style passer ranks 475th nationally in the 247Sports composite. He is 26th at his position but third in Arizona. The only Copper State quarterback who outranks him is Nicco Marchiol, who just named USC in his Top 8 schools.
In fact, Brown is of a significantly higher-profile than Slovis, who ranked 705th in the country in 2019. However, the new commit also stands 6-foot-2 and weighs in at 190 pounds.
The important thing for USC is obviously not his height or weight. It’s how he slings the ball.
As a sophomore at Queen Creek High School in 2019, Brown played in eight games and put up 1,139 yards. However, his touchdown-to-interception ratio left plenty to be desired at 10-12.
“Went to watch #QueenCreek play last year and new #USC QB Devin Brown made some strong throws. He showed some mobility and an ability to make off-platform throws,” Shotgun Spratling of USCFootball.com wrote on Twitter.
The Trojans needed to add a quarterback in the class of 2022 because of extremely concerning depth at the position.

Even with Jake Garcia and Miller Moss slated to join the team as members of the class of 2021, USC could enter the season with just three scholarship quarterbacks. By 2022, with Slovis potentially off to the NFL, Garcia and Moss would be the only scholarship passers on the books.
