Noah Cain, a five-star running back in the class of 2019, hasn’t announced his top schools list yet, but expect Ohio State to be there.
Noah Cain was one of a number of huge recruits that checked out the Buckeyes during a big June camp, and he returned to Columbus for Ohio State’s home game vs. Oklahoma in September.
He’s still very interested in Urban Meyer’s program.
The blue-chipper spoke to Land of 10 about where Ohio State stands in his recruitment. While he hasn’t cut down his list from the 23 schools that have reportedly offered him, the Buckeyes were the first name that stood out as one that will crack his top five:
“Right now the school that solidified itself is Ohio State,” Cain said when asked which teams he intends to include in a top-5 list this offseason.
“Just talking to them on an everyday basis, either Coach [Urban] Meyer or [running backs coach Tony] Alford,” Cain said during media day for the Future 50 event at the Under Armour All-America Game. “They came down to IMG a lot of times and spoke with me. They’re just a good staff that I have a relationship with.”
It’s not only the coaches who Cain has developed a good relationship with. He went on to refer to Ohio State freshman running back J.K. Dobbins as a “big brother” to him.
Cain stars at Florida’s prestigious IMG Academy. He is the No. 21 recruit in the country per 247Sports, and the No. 2 running back in the class of 2019.
