Brown is going to make a very good cornerback with that size and athleticism. Work hard and the sky is the limit!

This artifice only made a small reference to Brown potentially playing CB the rest of it discussing his opportunities as a WR. I thought I heard they were for sure flipping him to CB? Was hoping for more clarification here.

 Great article Vico - this kid will have a big future for us down the road.

Go get'em Cal Poppy - we are behind you !!

It's not a rivalry .............. it's a wreckoning.

I thought Brown was coming as a DB, per the coaching staff.

Healthy legs and very good speed. Hopefully he plays some this year and more next year. WR or DB is interesting. You will find the best place. Good luck.

Cameron Brown is a four-star wide receiver prospect from St. Louis who chose Ohio State over Nebraska.

A wise decision.

Whichever side of the ball this kid winds up on, I think he's got lots of possibilities to be very special. He sure has the physical tools, so the rest is dependent on how hard he works, and how much he learns from the coaching staff.

Go get 'em, Cameron! Go Bucks!!

Man, I love these BKAB pieces. Great info and insights as always. It will be interesting to see which side of the ball he ends up on.

Is it game day yet?

Nice film! Brown has a ton of potential on both sides of the ball with his speed. He also seems to play bigger than what he is listed as, if that makes sense.

Nothing that comes easy is worth a dime.

Did the QB he played with get a college scholarship or is he still in HS?  Looks pretty good in those films.  Maybe not top tier but good enough to get a shot somewhere at the next level.

Too bad Williams got canned- no more Twitter wars and trash-talking back and forth with Z. Smith. Wonder if Lindsey is regretting his choice...?

A man got to have a code...

I hope he plays CB and stays there. To my untrained and unskilled eyes, I envision he could be Gareon Conley with blazing speed. I for one would love another technically sound, dependable and in Cameron's case, really fast corner locking WRs down in the next 2 years or so.

Probably not too bold of a statement, but Brown could easily go on to shine as the "sleeper" of this class even if he was a 4-star.

It's easy to get caught up in the stars & names and somehow Brown seems to fly below the radar a bit. This kid's skill is REAL. Glad he's ours and not Braska's, or Bama's for that matter.

Buckeyes & Blue Jackets.

I feel like we are so loaded at corner that it makes a lot more sense to play him at wr, plus they're young corners too, playing time at wr will be up for grabs the following season

 

^ best post ever ^

We are loaded with athletes at corner and WR....too many IMO. Seems like we have 10 at each position and they are just better than average. Too many unknowns after 1-3 years in the system.

We gotta get a 1 or 2 to step up and be the guy. That way we can get an extra OL/DL or LB that we need.

Guys gotta quit giving themselves nicknames and start dominating on the field against our better competition.

OK, this made me laugh out loud.

But yes, receiver has been a frustrating position. We've not had a true star there since Michael Thomas, and he was criminally underserved in our offense. The thing is, I don't see us landing the type of difference makers at wideout that we do elsewhere on the roster. Meyer routinely nabs top-10 and even top-5 positional recruits at DE, LB, DB, RB and OL. We're even doing it now at DT.

At wideout, not so much. We've signed exactly two 5-star recruits since 2002 (according to the Rivals database): Devier Posey and Trevon Grimes. We have tons of 4-star receivers, but most have positional rankings in the 20s, 30s and deeper. Now, the most recent classes seems to be turning that tide. Guys like Garrett Wilson, Blue Smith, and Trevon Grimes are all top-10 prospects at the WR position. So perhaps we'll see some truly elite play from the position in the next few years. Nicknames notwithstanding, of course.

Fast is fast, no matter which side of the ball he plays.  Now let the coaching staff work with him.  Looks to have the potential to be another good one.

Great article Vico! Very accurate account of my son's flip to THE Ohio State University. He's very smart young man and took the recruiting process very seriously. Being a seventeen year old kid getting pulled in different directions and also trying to get the State Championship for your high school team, is very tough. Ultimately, Cam made the right choice. He is very happy being a Buckeye. #GoBucks
