Cain, who also plays basketball and runs track, is listed at 6’2 and 175 pounds joins four-star Jaden Alexis as the only other pure wideouts to sign with Texas so far in the 2021 class. The Louisiana native pledged to the Longhorns in May over Houston, Memphis, Vanderbilt, Virginia, and others.
While he won’t be the fastest player on the field (4.71 forty-yard dash at the 2019 Opening), Cain does have a 33-inch vertical and exhibits great hands.
It will be up to Andre Coleman and the Texas staff to develop Cain into a top threat, but the Warren Easton product shows the basic fundamentals to turn into a consistent weapon.
Cain ranks as the No. 1,037 player nationally and the No. 150 wide receiver, according to the 247Sports Composite rankings.
