If there’s one thing I have known about Guyer sophomore Noah Cain since, oh, about the Keller game last year, it’s that he is really good at running with a football in his hands.
See what I mean?
Well, all that hype and all those accolades were given some “oomph” on Wednesday afternoon when recruiting site 247 Sports released its initial rankings for the Class of 2019.
Cain, who’s 5-11 and now a hair over 200 pounds, missed the better part of four games last year with a broken hand, but still managed to rack up 1,058 yards on 112 carries (9.4 yards per carry) and 10 touchdowns while adding another score through the air.
And now, he’s ranked as the nation’s top running back in his class and as the No. 5 player overall nationally. The sophomore-to-be is poised for a huge season as a part of what is sure to be a dynamic Guyer rushing attack with Cain, seniors Myron Mason and Christian Moore and junior quarterback Luke Stillwell.
Cain already has offers from Arizona, Arizona State, Kansas, Miami, Oklahoma State, SMU, Texas A&M and Tulsa and is sure to get a lot more in the next few years.
