GT the first to offer Cain as QB

Junior Tampa (FL) athlete Deon Cain has six offers to his name but Georgia Tech was the first offer him strictly as a quarterback.

2015 Tampa (FL) athlete Deon Cain is an emerging talent in the state of Florida. He has a total of six offers and more will be sure to come for the junior standout.

The four-star prospect from Tampa was offered by Georgia Tech last week. He talked about what that offer meant to him.

"It was pretty cool," Cain said about getting the offer from the Yellow Jackets. "They are the first school to offer me strictly as a quarterback and not as an athlete. I like that they think I can play the position and have no doubts."

"I don't really care what position I play," he added. "I like being the quarterback but the most important thing for me will be to see the field early, wherever that may be."

Cain already has an idea of what to expect from Georgia Tech and is aware of the academic prestige of the Yellow Jackets.

"Georgia Tech is an appealing school," he admitted. "They are a very good school for educational purposes and academics. If I went there I'd know that I'd be making the most of my academic opportunities. I'm interested in seeing what they have to offer academically."

"I haven't been in contact with Georgia Tech much yet," he continued. "I have only talked to them when they extended the offer to me. They were excited and they have said they want to recruit me pretty hard. They think I fit their scheme and would be dangerous with the ball in my hands. I think I could do damage in their offense."

Early playing time is another key area that Cain will focus on when making a college decision, in addition to academics. He's already begun to do research on the topic.

"I've already looked at depth charts from schools," he revealed. "I've also looked at the 2013 and 2014 recruiting classes of teams that offered me. It is something I really want to pay attention to when I'm looking at schools."

When asked if he would take a trip to Atlanta at some point to take a look at Georgia Tech, Cain had a simple response.

"I'd love to visit Georgia Tech," he answered. "I definitely plan on it. I want to spend time with the coaches and see how the school is. I am going to look into them and do the research."

Cain has told Scout that Florida State is his leader and he picked up his newest offer yesterday, from Florida. He also holds offers from Central Florida, South Florida, and Louisville.
