On a day where you hope to add more quality players to your recruiting class, Nebraska lost one.
Four-star wide receiver Cameron Brown from Christian Brothers High School in St. Louis, Missouri, was committed to Nebraska’s class, then left it, then got back in the class. Today, on the first day of the early signing period, he announced that he would be leaving Nebraska’s class for good and signing with Ohio State.

Brown’s commitment had been in question since Nebraska’s season started to go downhill and the status of the coaching staff was in real jeopardy. It really seemed as if Brown saw two options on the table. Either playing at Nebraska for Keith Williams or play with his high school teammate and friend, 4-star wide receiver Kamryn Babb at Ohio State.
He chose Ohio State which is no big surprise since he went silent once Mike Riley and his staff were let go. This is just another log on the fire in the potential rivalry between Nebraska and Ohio State. Nebraska currently has one true wide receiver listed in Jaron Woodyard plus two who could fit at either wide receiver or tight end in Justin McGriff and Katerian Legrone for the 2018 recruiting class.
