Scout Spotlight: Gator target Deon Cain

New Florida coach Jim McElwain is in search of some top line skill talent on offense and one of the best out there is current Clemson commit Deon Cain.

With a new offense and a new recharge of the Gator program under Jim McElwain, the new leader of the Gator football team is looking to seriously add some skill talent on offense.

This season at Colorado State, McElwain left behind a 1,600 yard receiver and a 1,300 yard rusher to come to Florida and bring his brand of wide open football back to the SEC where he once roamed the sidelines at Alabama as the offensive coordinator and won two national championships.

Tampa Bay Tech 2015 athlete Deon Cain plays quarterback and receiver, and colleges have been recruiting him at receiver. He is a special athlete with size (6-1, 197), speed, and elusiveness with the ball in his hands. The Gators need all of that.

"Cain is an elite athlete with good size and length," Scout national analyst Jamie Newberg wrote in his Scout bio. "Cain’s primarily played quarterback and has only played wide receiver during the off-season. Cain’s just a natural.He never fights the ball and catches everything with his hands away from his body. Cain possesses terrific hand-eye coordination and is good in the air, showing body control. Cain possesses very good speed.The best two words to describe his game at receiver is smooth and effortless."
