Dabo Swinney, the former Alabama wide receiver and assistant coach who is now an assistant coach at Clemson, was in Birmingham last weekend for the combine that was held at Mountain Brook High School. Coach Swinney left the state with several Alabama prospects on his mind. McCain was offered by Clemson on Tuesday night.
McCain, 6-5, 230, said, "I like the fan support that I've heard about at Clemson. Coach Swinney said it's only 4-5 hours from Birmingham, which I didn't know. A couple of people that went to my high school go there and like it a lot."
McCain also received a call from Auburn the same night with an offer. "Coach Price called me and said the Auburn staff had their first recruiting meeting after being on the road for a few weeks," McCain said. "Coach Price said that I was the first tape they looked at and Coach Tuberville stopped it half-way through and said to offer me a scholarship." Terry Price coaches defensive ends for Auburn.
McCain has mainly played defense at Briarwood and will have the opportunity to also play tight end his senior season. He has offers by some as a tight end and others as a defensive player. McCain added, "Coach Price said I would have the opportunity to play tight end or defensive end."
