Recruiting has gotten a bit more intense for 2015 Athlete Deon Cain (6-2, 190, Tampa, FL, Tech), whose last few weeks have been occupied by new scholarship offers and last Thursday’s Under Armour All-American Combine.

The three latest offers for Cain all come from big schools, which also gives Cain more than 10 offers heading into his senior year.

“Clemson, Tennessee and Florida all offered me the week before Christmas break,” Cain said. “Florida was a real big offer for me because my brother goes to school there and it’s a real big thing in my house with Florida. Florida is a big part in my life.”

Cain has played quarterback , running back, receiver and defense and in high school and the Gators aren’t ready to pin point a position for him right now either.

“Florida wants me as an athlete in their offense,” Cain said. “They haven’t really told me exactly what position but just an athlete. I plan to talk to them more about it after the dead period is over with and I talk to them again. It really doesn’t matter where I play honestly.”

The Gators have struggled on offense lately but Cain says that Florida has talked to him about how the offense will be different next year.

“Last time I talked to Coach (Joker) Phillips he was telling me about the new offensive coordinator,” Cain said. “He was telling me what was going to happen for next season on offense and stuff. “I think they are going to go to the spread next year. I like Coach Brian (White) a lot and I like the way Coach (Kurt) Roper coaches offense too.”

Despite the interest Cain has in Florida, the junior from Tampa is in no hurry to make any kind of commitment to a school.

“I want to do all of my research before I make any kind of decision,” Cain said. “I will probably wait a little while before I make a decision of any kind.”

Starting in the next few weeks things will get even busier for Cain as he starts to take visits to schools for their junior days.

“I know I’m going to junior day at Florida coming up,” Cain said. “I also plan to go to junior days at Florida State and probably Tennessee too.”
