LINCOLN – A few highlights into Cameron Brown’s Hudl highlight film, he catches a quick pass — known as a hitch route — five yards beyond the line of scrimmage.
Nebraska’s latest commit for the 2018 recruiting class spins immediately after the catch, making one defender miss. A few yards later, the Christian Brothers Christian College receiver stops, lets another defender run by and hops past him. At this point, Brown, standing flat-footed, has a 13-yard gain. Two defenders have decent angles and are gaining on him.
Ten yards later, those defenders are one yard away. They never catch Brown, who leaves them ten yards in his wake by the time he finishes off a 72-yard touchdown.
The film has more — two Pick Sixes — interceptions for touchdowns — that reveals Brown as a two-way prospect. The 6-foot, 170-pounder, whose recruiting began to take off after he ran a 4.51-second 40-yard dash at a Nike regional testing event in Chicago, announced his choice for the Huskers on Sunday via Twitter.
Brown is a four-star prospect according to Scout and a three-star prospect according to Rivals and 247 Sports. He remains unrated by ESPN.
As a junior at CBC — the alma mater of current Nebraska running back Tre Bryant — Brown had 1,023 yards receiving and 11 touchdowns. He also had four interceptions. Brown’s teammate, Kamryn Babb, is another receiving target for the Huskers.
NU has ten known commits for the 2018 class.
