Browner let Rivals.com know that he plans to take official visits to Arizona State, Oregon, Miami, Oklahoma and Ohio State. All have offered scholies except Oklahoma and Ohio State.
"I would like to go away for schools," Browner said. "I really don't want to stay in the same location. I want to get independent and away from home."
If Browner stays local more than likely he will go to USC. Browner had USC ties that run deep.
"I will keep USC in mind," Browner said. "It's kind of cool when I go over to Heritage Hall; I see pictures of Dad and Uncle on the wall with all the great players in USC history."
Great football bloodlines also run deep in the Browner family. Not only did his father and three Uncles make it to the NFL but his cousin is ex-Florida Gator star offensive lineman Max Starks who is now making his living on Sunday's with the Pittsburgh Steelers.
