Texas landed a pair of three-star commits on Friday, May 15. Hallettsville running back Jonathon Brooks along with Warren Easton wide receiver Casey Cain both announced their decision to become Longhorns. The moves not only solidified the impressive talent that Texas has recruited on the offensive side of the ball, but also pushed them up the rankings to number eight nationally via 247Sports.
“When it came to recruiting, Texas showed that they wanted me the most. Even during the pandemic and not being able to visit, they found a way to make it happen and the effort was never short. They took the time to take me on a virtual visit along with the whole staff,” Cain explained. “There is no telling when it will actually be safe to fly or go on a visit anywhere. I’ve built a good relationship with the coaches that are going to be surrounding me so that made me feel more comfortable about the decision. Also, Mike Yurcich has a specific plan for me in his offense, can’t argue with that especially with how much they throw the ball.”
Cain is an explosive playmaker from New Orleans, LA. His high school, Warren Easton, has made the Class 4A state finals in two consecutive seasons, both times losing to Edna Karr. He’s a 6’2 175-pound athletic receiver who can go get any jump ball thrown at him.
The 2021 wide receiver is a three-star commit via the 247Sports Composite and is the 23rd ranked player in the state of Louisiana for the 2021 class.
“I think it comes from my mindset, I’m a really self-motivated person and I do everything with a chip on my shoulder, like I have something to prove,” Cain said on what makes him successful.
Cain is a freak of nature athletically. Along with being the star wide receiver for Easton, he’s also one of the leading scorers on the basketball team and runs track for his school.
“Before I arrive I want to win a championship in at least two sports for the school and be a part of history,” Cain said.
Cain adds his name to the list of lethal offensive weapons that Texas has for the 2021 class. A list that includes talent ranging from three-star athletes like Landen King and Juan Davis to the two best athletes in the state of Texas in four-star Billy Bowman Jr. and five-star Ja’Tavion Sanders.
Cain also becomes the first out of state commit for Texas’ 2021 class. Possibly, opening the door for others to make that leap for the Longhorns.
“I’m excited to be a part of a new environment and to have the privilege to pick where I want to go to school and to start the next chapter of my life at a great place,” Cain explained on why he’s so excited to be a Longhorn.
Cain is elated about his future with the Longhorns. He chose Texas over other major Division-1 programs such as Vanderbilt, Virginia, and Houston.
He wants Texas fans to know a few things about him before he arrives in Austin next year.
“Fans should know that I’m kind of a quiet person, I’m down to earth, I’m always honest, I’m from New Orleans, and my others sports are basketball and track.”
