Cason on the rise
Along with his teammates on Detroit's "Max Ex" 7 on 7 team, corner back/safety Tim Cason of Clarkson (Mich.) High will be checking out Notre Dame Saturday on his way to competition in Chicago. "I'm excited about getting down to Notre Dame for a visit on Saturday," Cason said. "I want to check out spring practice and see facilities. Notre Dame has great football and great academics. They have both, and they have a great engineering program, which is what I want to major in." "The Notre Dame coaches said they have to see me play at camp and see me in person before my recruitment goes forward with them," Cason said. "They like my height and speed. If I got offered by Notre Dame, that would immediately put them towards the top." Cason has most recently visited Georgia Tech and Michigan. "I visited Georgia Tech last weekend, and that visit went really well," Cason said. "They also have a great engineering program. Michigan was great, too. It was nice over there. I got to watch the players and see how they run things at Michigan." Cason, who holds offers from Toledo, Western Michigan, and Bowling Green, should see his recruitment heat up during the evaluation period and heading into summer. Already this spring, Cason took home MVP honors at the Adidas Invitational in Allendale, Michigan a couple weeks ago. This summer, Cason plans to do a tour of the south. "I'm going to camp at Mississippi State, Alabama, basically SEC schools and get down to LSU, Missouri and Clemson." Cason is a three-star prospect and is ranked as the No. 43 safety in 2014.
