5-star RB talks Clemson visit, offer


Clemson hosted the country's top 2019 RB on Saturday

Bradenton (Fla.) IMG Academy five-star running back Noah Cain visited Clemson on Saturday and left with an offer from the Tigers in tow.

“It feels good,” Cain told The Clemson Insider. “Clemson is an offer a lot of recruits want.”

Cain — the nation’s top-ranked running back in the 2019 class — was among the headlining guests for Clemson’s game against Georgia Tech on Saturday night in Death Valley.

It marked his first game-day visit to Clemson.

“I had a good time meeting the staff and seeing the facilities,” he said.

Cain (5-11, 205) has been in regular contact with Clemson co-offensive coordinator and running backs Tony Elliott, who continued to lay the foundation of their relationship on Saturday.

“He said I fit their culture,” Cain said, “and he’s looking forward to keep building a strong relationship with me.”

In addition to Clemson, Cain’s esteemed offer list includes Florida State, Georgia, LSU, Miami, Michigan, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Texas, Texas A&M and others.

Cain intends to wait until after his senior season to make a decision.

Where does Clemson stand after entering the fold?

“If I build a strong relationship with them they’ll be a contender,” he said.

Cain is teammates with Clemson commits Mike Jones and Xavier Thomas, who are staying in his ear about the Tigers.

“Yeah, they are,” Cain said, laughing.

Besides Clemson, Cain has been to games this season at Florida, Ohio State and Oklahoma. He also tripped to Dallas for the Red River Rivalry showdown between Texas and Oklahoma.

Cain transferred to IMG from Denton (Texas) Guyer over the offseason.

As a sophomore last season, he rushed for 1,683 yards and 22 touchdowns.
