National Top 100 prospect Deon Cain to announce Friday, can Gators keep him home?

Deon Cain is a national Top 100 stud out of Florida, and the Gators would love to keep him close to home.

The problem is all those pesky college football powers all around the southeast who have also garnered his attention. Georgia, Tennessee, LSU and Clemson also have a legitimate chance of adding him. On Friday at 2:30 p.m. ET, Cain will make his choice official. He is from Tampa (Fla.), but Florida is not a lock to land this outstanding athlete–one who could play wide receiver or even be a  dual-threat quarterback in certain situations. Cain is 6-foot-1, 190 pounds. He threw for nearly 2,000 yards and 13 touchdowns last year, but also rushed for 731 yards and 4 TDs for Tampa Bay Tech High School. He has outstanding speed.

He is rated the No. 76 overall prospect in America and the No. 9 receiver in the land. Some individual services have him as high as the No. 2 wide receiver in the country.
