Forward Jamal Cain made the decision to switch from an independent team to The Family on the Nike EYBL circuit in hopes of developing as a player and emerging on the nation scene. So far that seems to be happening for Cain, who is one of the top prospects in the state of Michigan.
“The spring has been going well,” noted Cain. “I am playing way better than in high school. Playing against the best players in the EYBL has shown me what I am capable of.”
He continued, “I am working on improving my ball handling. I think that is what I need to improve on the most.”
On the recruiting side of things, Cain is beginning to get more and more high-major attention.
“It has been Xavier, Washington State, Georgia, and Marquette, mostly so far.
The Musketeers had Cain down on campus during the season for an unofficial visit, and he says he has built a very strong relationship with Chris Mack and assistant Travis Steele.
“My relationship with them is real good,” said Cain. “Coach Mack and Coach Steele are good people to talk to, and if I had to rate my visit down there it would have been a 10 out of 10.”
The latest school to offer is Marquette, and according to Cain he is beginning to build a solid relationship with the Golden Eagles staff.
“They just offered, so now we are beginning to bond,” noted Cain. “We are talking more and more, so we are building a good relationship.”
Up next for Cain is a visit to Michigan. The Wolverines tracked Cain closely during April, and now Cain is hoping for an offer.
“I am visiting Michigan on April 27,” said Cain. “I am just going there, and hopefully they offer.”
For now Cain has no specific timeframe for a decision, but he does know what he will be looking for in a school.
“I am looking for a place where I can contribute to the team, and also a place where I can get a good education,” said Cain.
