Needless to say, Penn State has picked up a true competitor in Noah Cain. The Texas native and IMG Academy standout has been in the recruiting spotlight for many years now, and he seems to understand the responsibility that comes with such attention better than most.

Cain also gives some insight as to why he ultimately chose Penn State, despite some late wavering towards Texas, stating that he wants to follow in Saquon Barkley's footsteps. The former Nittany Lion superstar is having a fantastic first year in the NFL, giving James Franklin and his staff a great success story to point to when speaking with potential running back recruits.

Cain pairs with fellow four-star Devyn Ford to form one of, if not the top backfields in the 2019 recruiting class.
