The Tale:

Cam has long been one of Penn State's top targets at linebacker, earning his offer back in November of 2014. The Potomac, Maryland (#TheMovement) product has been high on the Nittany Lions for quite some time too, visiting for January's junior day, and again in June.

He named a top 5 of PSU, Notre Dame, North Carolina, USC, and Pitt earlier this month, with many believing the Lions and Irish were the teams to beat. With fellow LB prospects Aaron Hansford and Shaka Toney on campus today as well, plus PSU's pursuit of Brendan Ferns, Brown opted to jump on his offer while there was still room.

Cam is the 10th ranked player in Maryland, and the 21st ranked OLB prospect in the country.

PSU's class now stands at 17, and currently 7th in the nation.

The Outlook:

Brown has all the athleticism you look for in a true OLB. However, at 6-5, it is not a huge leap to say he could grow into a defensive end down the road. That potential flexibility has been a huge plus in PSU's pursuit, especially with those other true linebacker prospects on the board.

Welcome to Penn State, Cam!
