On Friday, St. Louis (Christian Brothers College) wide receiver Cameron Brown came to Ohio State with the hopes of earning a Buckeye offer. After an impressive performance in front of the OSU coaches, an offer was extended. One day later, Brown decommitted from Nebraska and reopened his recruitment.
Brown tweeted out the news.
“I would like to thank (the) Nebraska program and fans for supporting me through everything,” he wrote. “After talking to my parents, I will be decommitting (from) the University of Nebraska. Nebraska is still one of my top schools but at this time I feel it is best to reopen my recruiting.”
Cameron Brown (6-1 171) is rated a 3-star prospect and the No. 55 receiver overall per the 247Sports Composite. At a Nike combine this spring, he ran a 4.51 40-yard dash and also put up a 40.9″ vertical.
Despite the timing, Brown tweeted that his decommitment had nothing to do with his Ohio State offer.
Ohio State is not the reason…. just to let everyone know ?

As a junior, he compiled 1,023 yards receiving and 11 touchdowns.
Brown showcases a consistent ability to get deep, but he is also an aggressive receiver who attacks the football. That aggressive nature is especially seen when he plays on the defensive side of the ball, where he had four interceptions as a junior last season.
He is also the teammate of 4-star receiver Kamryn Babb, who is Ohio State’s No. 1 receiver target in the 2018 class. Alabama, Cincinnati, Duke, Illinois, and Missouri are some of Brown’s other offers.
