The Tale

Well, the first shoe dropped in regards to wide receivers in the class of 2017. Cameron Sullivan-Brown made the call for the Nittany Lions, which isn’t all that surprising since Penn State has been one of his leaders throughout much of the process.

Sullivan-Brown received his Penn State offer while visiting for a spring practice back in April, but didn’t make a return trip to Happy Valley until this summer’s Lasch Bash. Although he didn’t commit during the Bash, it appears the summer gathering was the visit that put the Nittany Lions over the top for the Maryland wide receiver.

Sullivan-Brown is ranked as the 13th best player in Maryland, the 80th wide receiver in the country, and the 525th player overall according to 247Sports Composite. Following a string of three commitments in the last couple days, Sullivan-Brown is the 12th member of Penn State’s 2017 recruiting class.

The Outlook

Sullivan-Brown will remind Penn State fans of current wide receiver DaeSean Hamilton. At 6-foot-1 with lean frames, they’re about the same size, and they share similar skill sets. He’s a fluid athlete that already runs good routes, but he lacks the second gear speed-wise to be a true home run threat.

With as stacked as the Nittany Lions are at wide receiver, it’s a good bet that Sullivan-Brown takes a redshirt season his first year on campus as he continues to get bigger.

Welcome to Penn State, Cameron!
