Jake Browning has not talked much with Alabama. So when he was told to call the coaches on Tuesday he was surprised and curious.
The Folsom, Calif., four-star quarterback landed a new offer from the Crimson Tide and he's definitely interested in learning more about how he would fit in the program.
Since it happened only hours ago, Browning couldn't say much about where Alabama stands in his recruitment. First, he'll have to talk with his father about his newest offer and see where things go moving forward.
"I haven't been talking to them except for some times on Facebook," Browning said. "They just called my coach, coach (Kris) Richardson, about a week ago and he talked to some of the coaches. He told me to call today at 12:30 so I called and they offered me.
"It's a great program. Coach (Nick) Saban has won a lot of games there, a lot of good players and a lot of good quarterbacks. I'm still just trying to process it, too. I know what I see on TV from Alabama. I'll look into them a little bit more. I'm still going to keep my options open and try to make the right decision.
"I don't even know about a visit. I haven't even talked to my dad yet. I haven't even been home yet."
Timing could be an issue for Browning, who is planning to still make his commitment in mid-April. Washington, Boise State, Cal, Colorado, Utah and Washington State have also offered.
Browning, who famously threw for 5,737 yards with 75 touchdowns and 17 interceptions in his junior season, said the commitment plan is still on but things could change if he decides Alabama - or another school - comes under serious consideration.
"I'm pretty sure it's still on," Browning said. "This is like bam, bam, bam and it's like I don't know things are happening pretty fast."
Texas has also reached out to the Folsom quarterback but it's preliminary.
Brown has talked to assistant head coach for offense/quarterbacks coach Shawn Watson once and coach Charlie Strong followed him on social media on Tuesday but that's the extent of the recruitment so far.
