1. Wide receiver spots are at a premium.
Brown is the third receiver to join the 2018 Nebraska recruiting class. There is likely just one more player to be taken the rest of this cycle at the position so it was important for Brown to lock up his spot now.
2. The Missouri connection continues.
Brown became Nebraska’s second commit for 2018 from the Show Me State and if Husker fans have their way they will add at least one more. The next Missouri target that could be leaning Nebraska’s way is 3-star defensive end Daniel Carson who visited for the June 16 Friday Night Lights camp.
3. Nebraska picking up steam at Christian Brothers College High School.
Running back Tre Bryant gives the Huskers a CBC alum already on the roster and now Brown will make a second. There is another highly touted wideout, Kamryn Babb, on the team that I know the Huskers have near the top of their wide receiver board. It can’t hurt to get his teammate in the fold.
4. Keith Williams can get WR talent from anywhere.
The three current wide receiver commits hail from three different states. Manny Allen (California), Joshua Moore (Texas) and Cameron Brown (Missouri) show that Williams can go coast-to-coast for talent. He continues to show his ability to build relationships around the country.
5. How much better can WR recruiting get?
Nebraska already has three 4-star commits at the position in this class. Normally, that would be enough and fans would be celebrating. But the Huskers will still be looking to add at least one more wideout to this group and there are plenty of big names left on the board.
The home run guys are 5-star Amon-Ra St. Brown and Jalen Hall. There are also a few committed targets Nebraska hasn’t given up on in 4-star Brian Hightower and Mark Pope who are Miami commits and Alabama commit Xavier Williams.
Isaah Crocker, Kobe Smith, Chase Cota and Tommy Bush are all 4-star pass catchers that are in contact with Williams as well. Because of numbers, Nebraska has a nice luxury to be selective for what could be one more receiver spot.
