Player Profile: Caden Sterns
Sterns older brother' -- Jordan Sterns -- was a high-level college recruit who no plays at Oklahoma State, so the family pedigree is strong. Caden is just beginning to fill out a frame that will easily hold around 200 pounds. He is a prospect who could play receiver or safety on the next level and be very good at both. On offense, he is a natural play maker with above average attributes in all areas. On defense, he is an aggressive and bold defender who will make receivers fear catching the ball in his area of coverage. He can run and covers ground quickly. His skills as a receiver make him a threat to make a big play for the defense in 50-50 scenarios.
As a junior, Sterns collected 73 tackles, four interceptions (three returned for TDs), and broke up five passes to lead Steele to 14-2 record. He earned 27-6A First Team All-District, First Team All-State, and Scout All-Midlands honors.
Sterns will play in the 2017 Under Armour All-America Game.
Committed to the Texas Longhorns.
