Four-Star standout Caden Sterns is one of the best players in America for the class of 2018. He checks in as the No 2 ranked athlete in the nation according to Scout.com. Sterns has learned a lot about the recruiting process.
“It has taught me a lot,” Caden Sterns said. “Recruiting can be overwhelming at times along with worrying about school and everything else like football. But it's definitely a blessing no doubt. You have to enjoy the process because it's something I been working for since I was young and it's paid off. There's some who don't get a chance or they aren't in the position I am in so you can't take this for granted. So enjoy the process and to take everything into consideration. It's a big decision that will affect the next four years. And those next four years effect the rest of your life. So pick the school you fit best and have a great academic program. But this process is like no other. It's an amazing feeling. But overall it's taught me a lot. Just can't let it all get to you at one time.”
More than a few teams have shown a constant interest in Sterns.
“A couple of teams like LSU Tigers, Oklahoma State Cowboys, Oklahoma Sooners, Baylor Bears, TCU Horned Frogs, Houston Cougars, Tennessee Volunteers, Colorado Buffaloes and some who haven’t offered yet sir,” Sterns said.
Sterns breaks down his game and team
“The season is going good!” Sterns said. “My team and I are having a great season and are looking to make a deep run in the playoffs and winning state. As in individual, it's also pretty good, but could be better. There's always room for improvement. I try to Improve the negatives in my game, as well to keep improving and working on the positives. Just everything overall. And I'm always looking for things to better myself. But things I'm doing well is playing coverage, ball skills and playing physical. Just overall making plays. I've been working on the more mental part of the game as well as physical. Just on staying positive and confident in myself and watching the film. But I look to improve everything no just one thing in particular. From ball skills to my break or open field tacking I look to work on because I want to be a versatile player who can do a lot of things.Just have to stay hungry and humble.”
Sterns has a couple of big trips approaching.
“I will be visiting LSU November 5th, Oklahoma State for my brothers senior night game and nothing after that is planned, but I will definitely be visiting colleges,” Sterns said.
What does the four-star think about Texas and Charlie Strong?
“They are a great program,” Sterns said. They have been struggling, but there’s no success without a struggle. I am sure they will get back to what they are accustomed to especially with Charlie Strong leading the way.”
