WR Deon Cain Profile
Tampa Bay Tech junior wide receiver Deon Cain had already seen Elliott once during the current evaluation period.
"When he came by earlier this week, he was just like, ‘I'm going to go back.' You know, coaches always say, ‘I'm going to come back and see.' Sometimes they don't. He came back, like, two days later, the next day and they told me I had an offer," Cain said, during an interview with CUTigers on Wednesday night.
"It was kind of surprising because he came back so soon."
Cain has yet to make his first trip up to Clemson, but he's already pretty familiar with the program.
"I know they're having kind of a good season right now. I've been watching some of the big games that they've been playing, but I still love the school, because it was one of my favorite schools growing up," he said. "Most definitely, I love the entrance, coming in, coming down that [hill]. As I look at the games, it looks like they have a family thing going on."
Later that day, Cain spoke with Clemson wide receivers coach Jeff Scott.
"He was telling me some things about their school," Cain said.
The No. 28 wide receiver in the class of 2015, he hopes to visit Clemson sometime in the upcoming spring or summer.
In addition to Clemson, Florida State, Florida, Louisville, Tennessee, South Florida and UCF have offered. So has Georgia Tech, but the Yellow Jackets prefer him as a quarterback.
The Seminoles were recently listed as his leader.
"I don't have any favorites, but they're a team that's been showing me much love lately," Cain said.
As a junior, Cain passed for 1,997 yards with 16 touchdowns. He also rushed for 750 yards and four scores.
