The Nebraska football team is in danger of losing his commit for a second time.

The new Nebraska football coaching staff is having quite a big weekend in Lincoln. The staff is hosting a number of its top targets this weekend but there’s at least one commit that is visiting another school at the same time.

Wide receiver commit Cameron Brown announced on Twitter that he is in Columbus, Ohio this weekend. The Missouri native has long had a courtship with the Buckeyes, even while he’s been committed to the Huskers.

Brown took an unofficial visit to Ohio State earlier this summer and decommitted from the Huskers soon after. After reopening his recruitment, he ended up committing to the Huskers once again.

While he still remains a commit to Nebraska, he’s taking his official visit to OSU. Brown’s visit makes sense. He just saw the coaching staff he had forged relationships with fired.

While he has said he’s quite excited to see what Scott Frost and company can do, the lure of a coaching staff that has been in place and won the Big Ten. The four-star wide receiver is certainly a prize.

Brown is considered the 57th best receiver in the entire 2018 class. While he came back to the Huskers in August, his willingness to take an official visit seems to indicate there’s a chance he’s flippable.

Ohio State has been having some very good luck in the recruiting ranks the last few weeks. While the Huskers have been issuing offers at a pace fans have rarely seen, they haven’t actually pulled in a commit quite yet.

If the Huskers can turn one or more of the visits this weekend into an actual commit Cameron Brown might be able to be persuaded to stick it out. The Nebraska football team’s 2018 class is down to eight players with just 11 days until the early signing period.
