With the Gators kicking off spring practice there will soon be dozens of prospects rolling through Gainesville, taking unofficial visits to watch practice. Two prospects, however, didn’t wait until this week to visit Gainesville, instead deciding to visit Gainesville last weekend.
One of those prospects was receiver Deon Cain (6-1, 190, Tampa, FL Tech) who enjoyed his visit with his good friend Ray Ray McCloud.
“My visit to Florida went wonderful. Both Ray Ray and myself enjoyed ourselves up there,” Cain said. “The coaches explained themselves about what was going on with the program and how they expect the team to be better this year compared to last year.”
When Cain was on campus last Thursday he got the chance to sit down with new offensive coordinator Kurt Roper who talked to him about he would fit into the Florida offense if he chooses the Gators.
“When I visited Florida on Thursday I got to talk to Coach (Kurt) Roper about where I would fit into the offense at,” Cain said. “He said that he’s going to be running the spread offense and that he thinks I can fit outside at the receiver position so I could get the ball more but he also said that I can fit anywhere on the field in the offense.”
Florida would love to land Cain and his friend McCloud and right now the two prospects want to play together in college as a package deal.
“Me and Ray Ray grew up together and have been friends since we were little so we made a decision to try and go to college together,” Cain said. “So now we just go on every visit together and tell coaches we want to play together so that coaches know that.”
Cain is in no rush to make any kind of commitment but he does have a plan to narrow things down after this spring.
“I’ll cut it down after I take more visits this spring,” Cain said. “Right now I’m just trying to talk to as many coaches as I can and visit as many places as I can.”
