Jake Browning attended the Ohio State-Cal game last weekend but mainly as a fan, not as a recruit, and he didn't talk at all with the Golden Bears' coaching staff.
The 2015 quarterback from Folsom, Calif., definitely liked what he saw from Cal's offense - especially the wide-open, pass-happy parts - because he runs a similar offense in high school and feels comfortable playing that way.
"I went and watched the game against Ohio State," Browning said.
"I went with my coach, his son and my coach's friend. They both went to Cal and they both go to a lot of Cal games. We went there as normal fans and watched it."
The Cal offense has to intrigue Browning, who has already completed 78 of 103 passes for 1,029 yards with 16 touchdowns and three interceptions through three games this season.
As a sophomore, Browning completed 391 of 605 passes for 5,248 yards with 63 touchdowns and 16 interceptions.
The Golden Bears still haven't recruited Browning all that much yet but if those numbers continue the four-star recruit could definitely see his recruitment pick up.
"They haven't really talked to me at all," Browning said of Cal. "They send letters but that's mainly it."
So far, the Folsom quarterback has landed offers from Boise State, Utah, Washington and Washington State. He said no other unofficial visits are planned at this point in the season.
