Kenny Cain: In his words
After an exhausting recruiting weekend, John Curtis standout athlete Kenny Cain took the time to do a Q and A with PurpleMenace.Com. Knowing that the prep star had been through the media circus over the last few days, we decided to take it easy on him and kept it short and sweet. You'll see after this interview why we think this kid will succeed at TCU and beyond. Enjoy.
Talk about what made you decide to come to TCU:
"Everyone was surprised that I chose TCU, they all kept asking me why not Tulane or Northern Illinois but I just had to do what was best for me and I felt like TCU gave me a great opportunity. Not just on the football field but with my education as well. TCU graduates 83% of their football players and that was important to me. I want to get a good education and TCU has a lot to offer me."
What was the reaction when you decided in favor of TCU?
"It was crazy, I could tell a lot of people wanted me to go to Tulane but I had to do what I thought was best for me. I had to get out of town and challenge myself. I talked it over a lot with people close to me like my sister and I just made the decision that I felt was best for me. Tulane is a great school and it was a very difficult decision to make but I think I made the right one. My future is very important to me and TCU has a lot to offer me."
What were some other things you liked about TCU?
"They have the #1 defense in the nation and they finished as the #7 team in the country last year. They are building for the future and I want to be a part of that. That's not the only reason I chose them though. I just felt comfortable there I and I really like the campus and everything about the school. I'm ready to get up there and help them any way that I can."
You mentioned that Coach Patterson told you that he would give you a shot at running back, do you have a preference where you play?
"I know they have the #10 running back in the country coming in and I'm not saying that I should be ahead of him or anything like that. I'm just saying that I look at it as a challenge and we are both trying to accomplish the same thing and that's help TCU win. I give Waymon all the credit in the world, he's not just an athlete, he's a great football player. Wherever I end up, I will do my best to help the team any way that I can. I look at it as a challenge, I love challenges and that's another reason why I chose TCU. I'm just happy to have such a great opportunity."
