Huskers add speed, skill in 4-star WR Cameron Brown

St. Louis (Mo.) Christian Brothers College wide receiver Camreon Brown made his commitment to Nebraska on Sunday, giving the Huskers a four-star addition.

Nebraska added the 10th commitment of the 2018 recruiting class on Sunday in Cameron Brown from St. Louis Christian Brothers College, a four-star athlete who could play defensive back or wide receiver at the next level. 

The Huskers have a former CBC standout on their roster already in running back Tre Bryant and now add Brown, who they offered in the fall shortly after he visited Lincoln for an unofficial visit.

Brown held additional offers from Iowa, Illinois, Missouri, Georgia, Kentucky, Wisconsin and more.

He was recently upgraded to a four-star by Scout after a superb performance the Under Armour All-America Camp in Chicago, where he won the IllSpeed challenge, an obstacle course which relies on explosiveness and agility.

"Brown is a high-level athlete on both sides of the football with plus size and and length," Scout's Greg Powers said. "As a defender, he shows the ability to make plays on the football and close the distance quickly. On offense, he tracks the ball well and is a vertical threat in the offense. His best overall attribute is his straight-line, top-end speed. The combination of that speed with his frame make him a high-upside prospect, the question being which side of the ball truly fits him best."

The explosive Brown is Nebraska's first 2018 commit from Missouri. The Huskers are also recruiting his teammate Kamryn Babb, a top 100 national prospect.

Brown finished his junior season with 1,023 receiving yards and 11 touchdowns on offense. He also grabbed four interceptions on defense.

His commitment will move Nebraska's class ranking into the national top ten.
