Cain emerged during the spring playing with The Family on the Nike EYBL circuit, where he averaged 13.1 points and 4.8 rebounds a game.
Cain possesses good length and athleticism at his size. He's also versatile and tough enough to play either forward position and most likely will at Marquette.
Further from Daniels:
Like the Jamal Cain pledge for Steve Wojciechowski & his staff. Cain is a 6-6 wing that plays with toughness. Aggressive, rebounds & defends— Evan Daniels (@EvanDaniels) September 17, 2016
Scout’s Brian Snow:
Jamal Cain should fit in really well as a stretch PF or big wing in Marquette's system https://t.co/BcARtTyH1P— Brian Snow (@BSnowScout) September 17, 2016
With a commitment from four-star Jamal Cain, Marquette now has a top 25 class in the 2017 247Sports Composite Recruiting Rankings.
Marquette is now ranked No. 22 nationally with the addition of Cain, a 6-7 small forward from Melvindale (Mich.) Academy For Business And Technology School.
This commitment also suggests that Wojo’s heavy recruitment in the state of Michigan is paying off despite strong competition from Michigan State’s Tom Izzo and Michigan’s John Beilein. Besides [Marquette verbal commit Ike] Eke and Cain, Grand Rapids Christian power forward Xavier Tillman is also seriously considering Marquette.
