Cain picks up Memphis offer, other interest

Elijah Cain, a 6-foot-6 wing, has showed an improved game this season. That has led to new college interest, including an offer from Memphis on Monday.

In the offseason Elijah Cain transferred to Newark (N.J.) St. Benedict's and reclassified to the 2015 class. The transition appears to be going smooth, as Cain is excelling on the court.

Two weeks ago at the Hoop Hall Classic, Cain, a 6-foot-6 wing, showed an improved jump shot and played more aggressive on both ends of the floor. Cain said on Monday that his game is coming together.

"I think my whole game is developing," Cain told "I'm playing way better defense. I'm not taking plays off."

"I think I can bring everything," he added. "I'm not a selfish player at all. I like to pass. But I think I can shoot it, handle it and I'm 6-6 now. I'm a big guard. I like to defend the other teams best player. I've become a way better defensive player."

With his on the court improvements, recruiting attention is starting to pick up. Memphis offered Cain on Monday. He also has offers from Temple, Saint Joseph's, Delaware, Rider and Drexel.

Cain also claims interest from Creighton, Notre Dame, Texas Tech, Seton Hall, Rutgers, Villanova and Virginia.

"I'm getting a lot of high major notice," Cain said.

Cain took unofficial visits to Temple and Saint Joseph's last summer. At this time he doesn't have any other visits planned.
