The Cameron Brown recruiting saga appears over. The four-star #wide receiver out of Missouri had been a big get for the #Nebraska football team back in the early part of the summer. He was an equally big loss when he decided he wanted to open his recruiting back up, just a few weeks after committing. There had been some worry that Ohio State had managed to get into the big time Missouri prospect's ear.

It turns out that no matter what the reason for Brown deciding he wanted to look around after his initial announcement, he has said once again that he wants to be part of the Husker family.

While the 2018 recruiting cycle has been one of the best in recent history, the team had hit a bit of a quiet period. With fall camp commencing, headlines dominating the day were talking more about the players that are already in Lincoln, rather than the ones who might be here next fall.

Anyone who follows college recruiting knows that while the majority of the fan base might have turned the page, it's a safe bet the coaches were fully aware it was time for another recruiting win. The program just suffered a defeat of sorts in the form of Cameron Latu. Latu, a big defender and one of the best players in the 2018 class announced on Friday he was going to be heading to Alabama. While most prognosticators thought he was leaning that way, the Huskers were hoping for a bit of a miracle.

Had Brown decided he was also going to be going to Alabama, or worse yet, Ohio State there might have been some rumblings about Nebraska's inability to close the deal against the bigger boys of the college football world.

Those doubts won't be encompassing the Nebraska #Football Team anytime soon thanks to Brown's decision to join what is an absolutely stacked wide receiver corps.

Nebraska football stockpiling wide receiver talent

Brown will join other top rated receiver commits like Joshua Moore, (who's deleted tweet [VIDEO] had no relevance apparently) and current true freshman Huskers like Tyjon Lindsey. If there has been one area in which the Cornhuskers have needed to beef up the talent on the offensive side of the ball, it's been the receiver corps. While there have been standouts here and there, the group hasn't had a plethora of NFL caliber talent. That could be changing with the additions to the roster and the recruiting classes of the last few years.
