The culmination of the recruiting season is here, as National Signing Day 2017 is finally upon it. Here at Black Shoe Diaries, we’ll have coverage throughout the day of Penn State’s recruiting class, taking a player-by-player look at each member of the class, and taking a bigger picture look at the class as a whole. Thanks for stopping by, and if you aren’t already following, please follow @BSDTweet on Twitter for more recruiting news and notes.

Cameron Sullivan-Brown originally landed his Penn State just a few weeks before the Blue-White Game, but the Maryland wideout couldn’t make it back to Happy Valley until the Lasch Bash. It was there that it became clear that the Nittany Lions were the team to beat, and it was only a few weeks later that Sullivan-Brown made the call for Penn State.

Highlights

Scouting Report

I mentioned during his commitment article that he’s pretty similar to DaeSean Hamilton, but I think that’s underselling his athleticism. He certainly won’t be confused for Allen Robinson 2.0., but he’s a pretty solid athlete. Long arms too, which allows him to play bigger than 6-foot-1. Good route runner, and like Hamilton, a player who has very good body control when the ball is in the air.

As an aside, he also looks like a legitimate defensive back prospect too. He’ll start at wide receiver and should stay there, but if the opportunity presented itself, he’d make a pretty good safety.

Outlook

With the aforementioned Hamilton, Saeed Blacknall, DeAndre Thompkins, and a bunch of other wide receivers returning in 2017, Josh Gattis won’t have to rely on any incoming recruits. Toss in that — just like essentially every freshman — Sullivan-Brown could use some time to add some weight, and it’s easy to see that “CSB” will be redshirting next season.
