While Florida’s coaches are still trying to fit all the pieces of the Class of 2014 recruiting puzzle together, they are also laying the foundation for the future. Tuesday, the Gators offered 2015 athlete Deon Cain (6-2, 190, Tampa, FL, Tampa Bay Tech) when Will Muschamp visited the school.
“Florida came by my school on Tuesday and offered me,” Cain said. “Coach (Will) Muschamp was the one who came by and told my high school that they wanted to offer me. Coach Muschamp told my coach that he had watched my tape and that he wanted me to have the opportunity to come to Florida. He said that he remembered me from Friday Night Lights and that he was going to be recruiting me hard.”
At Tampa Bay Tech, Cain quarterback but at the next level he knows that his future is elsewhere, which is what Florida has told him so far.
“He told my coach that he wanted to recruit me as an athlete,” Cain said. “Coach Muschamp told my coach that they are going to spread offense and that I could be good in that offense he thinks. I think the spread will benefit me because that’s what I run in high school so I like it if they go to the spread.”
Cain was one of the many standouts at Florida’s summer Friday Night Lights Camps this past July and ever since then he has been high on Florida.
“I really like Florida a lot,” Cain said. “I like how they are rebuilding their offense and I like the coaching staff there. I like the atmosphere there and I like how loud it is on game days in the Swamp. It seems like family every time I go up there. When I went up this past summer the camp was under the lights and that really showed me a lot.”
Cain plans to visit Florida again for a Junior Day or in the spring sometime.
