  • Caban has an offer from Mississippi State and has interest in them. He traveled over to Starkville to check things out and visit with the coaches. He ended up also camping at MSU.

    "I didn't know there was a camp today," said the Scout.com 3-star linebacker. "I was just going to come here and chill. But (MSU coach Geoff Collins) asked me if I wanted to work out and I said yes."

    According to Caban, the camp experience helped both him and Mississippi State.

    "The camp helped because I didn't know how their coaches were, and I've seen them coach firsthand now," said the talented youngster. "(Personally) I did pretty good, better than I thought that I would. Coach Collins told me that he really liked me and how coachable I was, how intelligent I was with my drills."

    The camp wasn't his first time to visit the MSU campus.

    "This is my third time to be at Mississippi State," said Caban. "I like how they treat their players and I love their facilities. I like it here."

    With several more camps on the horizon, he explained why he participates in college camps.

    "I go to camps to try and get some exposure and work out with the coaches and see what they are like," said Caban. "(The Mississippi State camp) is my second camp. My first camp was at Alabama. I plan to also go to Kentucky and Clemson, and I'm trying to make it up to Louisville."

    A highly recruited linebacker, Caban has double digit scholarship offers.

    "I have a whole bunch of offers, Mississippi State, South Carolina, Kentucky, Southern Miss, Clemson, Louisville, Western Kentucky, Jacksonville State, Arkansas State, South Alabama, UAB, Troy, Cincinnati," said Caban.
