Nebraska picked up its 10th commitment of the 2018 recruiting class on Monday when Christian Brothers (St. Louis) wide receiver Cameron Brown rejoined the class.
The Huskers beat out Ohio State, Missouri, Georgia and Alabama to gain his commitment.
Brown (6-0, 171) is a speedy 4-star playmaker who gives Nebraska another commit from the coveted 500-mile radius. Brown posted a 4.51 laser-timed 40-yard dash at Chicago’s Nike Football The Opening Regional with a 4.28 shuttle.
The wideout had committed to Nebraska back in May and cited his relationship with wide receivers coach Keith Williams as key in his recruitment.
When he backed off his pledge there were reports that it was because Ohio State offered, which Brown himself refuted on Twitter. Back on June 23, when Nebraska had it’s second Friday Night Lights camp, Brown was in attendance despite having just decommitted from the Huskers. Brown seemed to enjoy himself at the camp which had many believing that Nebraska had a good chance to regain his commitment.
It’s pretty rare that a prospect decommits from a school only to chose that school again so that definitely shows Nebraska in a good light and speaks to the relationships that Williams and Mike Riley have been able to build.
