The Longhorns offered the 5-foot-11, 205-pound Cain, one of the country's top 2019 running backs, last week and joined a long list of programs from across the nation recruiting the young playmaker.
"I'm real excited bout getting down there," said Cain, who's recruited by offensive coordinator Tim Beck and running backs coach Stan Drayton.
Cain, who has taken recent visits to Georgia and Tennessee, will follow his visit to the Longhorns with a trip Friday to Oklahoma. But first, he's excited about visiting Texas, especially after getting the offer.
"It's definitely big-time because Texas is still looked at as Texas," said Cain, who is originally from Louisiana. "Coach (Tom) Herman's trying to bring the program back on the come-up. The plan he has installed, I can tell.
"With coach Beck and coach Drayton and the offense they run, it fits my style of play, so I like it a lot."
Cain, who transferred after the 2016 season from Dallas-area power Denton Guyer to IMG Academy in Florida, is a teammate of new Oklahoma 2018 running back commitment T.J. Pledger, one of the nation's top backs in his class.
"Me and T.J. Pledger, OU sits high with us because they're just real down-to-Earth guys and good people," Cain said. "I just want to check it out again.
"I know they have new facilities going on, plus I just want to meet with the coaches again to get more of a personal visit because the last times I've been have been games and junior days and stuff like that. They've still shown me love, but I just want to go there for a more personal visit because I'm going up there with my mom, so we'll just be up there checking it out."
In two seasons for Denton Guyer, Cain ran for 2,741 yards as only a freshman and sophomore. This past fall, Cain ran for 1,683 yards and 22 touchdowns on more than eight yards per carry.
