Detroit (Mich.) 2017 SF Jamal Cain reflects on his Michigan offer and more.

Last week, Michigan coach John Beilein extended an much anticipated offer to Detroit (Mich.) Cornerstone small forward Jamal Cain.

And the offer, well, it was received mighty happily by the rising three-star standout. 

“It was coach (John) Beilein who (extended the) offer,” Cain recalled. “I was just smiling the whole time after, the whole time to the house. It felt good.”

What does Michigan’s offer mean to Cain moving forward in his recruitment? Well, Cain put it in a unique perspective.

“It means don’t sleep, don’t sleep,” Cain said, referring to the importance of his U-M offer.

“(Michigan) is for sure top-three,” Cain said. “My top three, well, the schools that have been in contact the most have been Michigan, Marquette and Xavier.”

Although, Cain did note what stood on his last trip to Michigan.

“How great the campus was and how the school works,” Cain said. “And how they have so many people who help you stay on track (in school). So that really stood out, you know students first.”

And Beilein also compared Cain’s game to a current and former player.

“He said (I’m) like Zak Irvin and Tim Hardaway Jr., and how their game is there. So (playing the) 3-2, pretty much,” Cain said.

As of right now, Cain says he would like to make his commitment known sometime during or after his senior season.

“I’m looking for a great coach and academics-wise, what has the best school first and (helps you) stay on top of the books,” Cain said, adding: “And loves to win and putting in work.”
