Cain letting his play speak

Deon Cain has a nice list of offers with new ones continuing to roll in. The 2015 athlete of Tampa Bay (Fla.) Tampa Bay Tech is taking a "laid back" approach to his recruitment and he's letting his game do the talking.

A long list of schools have offered quarterback / athlete Deon Cain. His head coach Jayson Roberts said Cain is a laid back guy who shows up, works out, and heads home. There's no extra drama with him. Cain says that's just the type of guy he is.

"I just let it happen and go with the flow pretty much," he said.

"I'm just going to remain humble. I'm not the type of person to be flashy, I let my actions and playing do the talking."

A lot of schools have offered Cain and he likes pretty much all of them. The Seminoles may have a bit of an edge at this point.

"I like all of them equally pretty much, but Florida State probably stands out," he said.

"Clemson, Kentucky, Miami, Florida, Ohio State, North Carolina State, Alabama, mostly all my schools are my favorites. Tennessee. I like all the schools so far."

The four-star athlete says FSU will stay in the picture throughout his recruitment.

"Florida State is like my hometown, I'm from Tallahassee, so Florida State is always going to be big in my recruitment so Florida State is probably on top," he said.

It's the contact with the coaches from these programs that keep them in Cain's mind.

"The coaches, they take time out of their day to call me and see how I'm doing and always want to keep in contact with me, that's what really shows me what these schools are really about," he said.

"The ones I talk to the most are Clemson, Ohio State, Tennessee, and North Carolina State."

The 6-foot-3, 190-pound athlete expects to make a decision just before his senior season gets going. He's keeping his approach to making that decision simple.

"Do I get along with the coaches? Do I fit in the offensive scheme? Do they have my schooling figured out? Those are pretty much the big things in my decision," he said.

Cain visited South Florida for a junior day earlier this year and his next stop is to Florida for junior day on February 22nd. Other than that, he's taking a bus tour to several schools this summer with his 7on7 team.
