It was only a matter of time.
Urban Meyer and crew have brought the spatula out once again. Similar to other years, the Buckeyes coaching staff have successfully flipped themselves a talented prospect out of his verbal pledge to another program and into calling Columbus his future stomping grounds.
Just like his Christian Brothers High School (MO) teammate and fellow four-star rated wide receiver Kamryn Babb did earlier today, Cameron Brown, a longtime Nebraska pledge, has announced his intentions to suit up for the Ohio State University next fall by signing his National Letter of Intent with the Buckeyes during the early signing period on Wednesday.
The 6’1, 175-pound Brown will add another quick, soft-handed pass catcher to Ohio State’s arsenal of playmakers at wide receiver.
Playing for the state champion Cadets, Brown, the 59th wide receiver, and 340th overall prospect in the class of 2018, per the 247Sports Composite Rankings, hauled in 58 receptions for 931 yards and 13 touchdowns even though he missed most of the postseason with an injury.
Giving Ohio State his word just weeks after officially visiting the Ohio State University campus, Brown now has Ohio State currently sitting at 22 commitments going into the new year.
Brown can fly down the field to get the football. If you’re a defensive back, you have to keep your eyes on him, or you risk giving up a big pass play down the field. On top of that, Brown will go after and attack the ball. This past season, Brown’s high school, Christian Brothers College, brought home a state title. Now at Ohio State, don’t be too surprised if he helps bring home hardware to the Woody Hayes Athletic Center.
While he may not be Antonio Brown, Cameron Brown is electric as an offensive threat. (Who knows, maybe he’ll become OSU’s version of the Steelers’ wide out).
