One of the top receivers in the area for the 2018 class is St. Louis (Mo.) Christian Brothers wideout Cameron Brown. To indicate how loaded his high school team is, he's not the only receiver from there that holds an Iowa offer. His teammate Kamryn Babb does as well. But it was Brown, not Babb that was in Iowa City over the weekend to witness the Hawkeyes' massive upset of Michigan.
The three-star junior stands at 6-foot-1 and 170 pounds right now and is in possession of seven scholarship offers. Along with Iowa, he's been granted offers from Illinois, Missouri, Cincinnati, Iowa State, Indiana, and Nebraska. But it was the Hawkeyes that got to put on a show for him Saturday.
"The atmosphere was crazy," Brown said. "They didn't give up on Iowa football and that means a lot. The fans are really loyal."
Loyalty and stability are two hallmarks of the Iowa football program. That usually strikes quite a chord with perspective recruits. Pair that with a spectacular visit, and that makes a school dangerous on the recruiting trail. Iowa has a lot working in their favor for Brown.
"I don't know how visits can get any better than that," he pointed out. "I can't put any offer over another yet but I really, really like Iowa."
A lot of the recruits rushed the field after the Iowa win over Michigan but Brown was not one of those. It didn't work out for him to get that opportunity but he wished he had. For now, he's content with what he's seen and heard from the Hawkeyes and he'll consider them greatly moving forward.
"It was just a great visit," he noted. "I was able to talk with Coach Woods and Coach Shumpert. My relationship with them is very good. They want me to be apart of their program. I hope to get back there again."
