Ohio State cornerback Cameron Brown had 21 tackles, seven pass breakups and one interception this season.

Ohio State cornerback Cameron Brown announced Thursday night on Twitter that he'll return for his senior season in 2022.

"I've been through a lot over the past four years," he said. "But I am not done yet. There are many more memories and games to win with my brothers.

"I will be returning to Ohio State next year."

Brown's 2020 season ended early when he tore an Achilles tendon in the second game against Penn State. He recovered from that, but dealt with nagging injuries this season, missing three games.

"Injuries always set you back," he said Thursday in an OSU media availability. "You miss out a lot of months of development. But the trainers have been going really hard trying to help me get out there and keep going.

"I've had no issue with my Achilles at all for the past year. Just other stuff. You saw me in a knee brace, but that's not now. I don't need to worry anymore."

Brown was credited with 21 tackles this season. He had seven pass breakups and one interception.

Brown was non-committal about returning in during the media availability, though he said he would definitely play in Ohio State's Rose Bowl game against Utah.

"I'm not really thinking about it right now," he said. "I'm just trying to focus on Utah."
