Larry Rudolph, a Mobile-based scout, compared 2024 4-star Auburn football wideout commit Bryce Cain (Baker) to former University of West Alabama star and current WR1 for the Miami Dolphins, Tyreek Hil, on November 10.

“I will not just say this about any particular player but Bryce Cain has GREAT potential & he will be a 1st Team Freshman All-SEC at Auburn,” Rudolph prefaced before saying, “He has UNBELIEVABLE SPEED (4.3) and deep threat ability. He’s the Tyreek Hill of Alabama High School Football.”

Cain had several Power Five programs and Group of Five risers after him on the recruiting trail, including Ole Miss, Air Force, Cincinnati, Jacksonville State, Liberty, Louisville, Memphis, Northwestern, Troy, Tulane, and Wake Forest, so it’s not overly shocking to hear great things projected for the five-foot-11 wunderkind. But he now has otherworldly expectations to meet with the Hill comparison.

From the sound of it, there won’t be any J’Marion Burnette-esque funny business with Cain’s recruitment; with the former baseball standout assuring that his commitment is solid with opportunities in Auburn’s offense awaiting him right away.

“I love (Auburn),” Cain said (h/t AL.com). “It feels like home. I feel like I have an opportunity to play early, and I think the coaching staff can get me to the next level. I’m already loving it.

“I’m done (with recruiting). I’m 100 percent locked in. I feel like there is so much stress off me now. I can just go out and compete my senior year.”

Hugh Freeze and his coaching staff have raised the excitement levels of Auburn football on the Plains due to a stellar recruiting effort in his first cycle, but the modern state of recruiting dictates that a commit is never truly committed until the NLI is signed.

It’s good to hear Cain has confidence that his decision is seemingly final given AU’s recent propensity to being on the wrong side of recruiting flips.
