Clarkston (MI) High School junior cornerback Tim Cason has been a lock down corner for the Wolves this season. Cason talks with GBW about his recruitment, which school is coming after him the hardest and his season heading into the playoffs.
Impacting a football game as a cornerback is largely dependent upon the opposing offense and the amount of opportunities that come. For Clarkston junior cornerback
, the amount of plays headed in his direction are few and far between but the 2014 product has still been an integral part of the Wolves’ undefeated regular season culminating in a 41-20 win over Oak Park.
“It was great,” Cason told
. “We came out to win. We told our guys in the locker room before the game, we said we got to strive to make our goal to go 9-0 along with our freshmen and JV and we came out to play.”
Despite limited action, Cason will be ready to make a play when his number is called and an opponent challenges him on the outside. Whenever that might be.
“A lot of teams I guess they’ve heard about me,” said Cason. “They haven’t thrown to my side at all. It’s bad but, I mean, I’ll get my work in when the playoffs start.”
“My strengths are I can break really well and I’m able to guard the pass easily,” added Cason. “Man to man, I’m great at that. Some of my flaws would be coming up, kind of, because I’m too worried about the pass.”
Colleges have received word of Cason’s abilities and are already in contact with the young man.
and Toledo,” said Cason. “Illinois has been talking a little bit and Missouri, but basically Michigan State. They’ve been sending me letters everyday.”
Michigan is another school that’s been inquiring about Cason and even invited the Clarkston product up for an unofficial visit for the Michigan State game.
“They’ve been recruiting me pretty well,” said Cason. “Not as big as any other school, but they’ve been talking to me. And they invited me out to a game I wanted to go to and I chose that one. They’ve just been calling and saying they like me a lot, but it’s really with every other Big Ten school. They want to wait until after the season.”
One of the more divisive weeks of the year in the state of Michigan always occurs when the Wolverines and Spartans meet on the field. Cason, who visited Ann Arbor for the game, grew up on one side of the ledger.
“I’d have to say Michigan State,” said Cason. “I just love the program. They got a great program. The coaches are great and they win a lot of games so I like them a lot.”
Academics are of great importance for Cason as his recruitment begins to take off, and for that reason, as well as increased attention, the Clarkston junior has a clear number one school early.
“The engineering programs I’m looking into right now,” said Cason. “Michigan State has a great engineering program as well as Michigan, but right now, as far as love, Michigan State has been sending me a lot of stuff so they’re my number one school right now if they offer.”
