Jason Cain, a mobile and athletic 6-9, 203-pound combo forward from John Bartram H.S. in Philadelphia, Penn., told RivalsHoops.com he chose Virginia for several important reasons. "They were the most honest with me," Cain said. "I love the conference, the coaches, and players. I enjoyed my visit there."
Cain said he expects to be on the campus of Virginia soon. "I want to get into the weight room and improve my strength," Cain said. "Eventually I can be a small forward if I improve my perimeter defense. I am going to work hard."
Cain had an outstanding senior year and motivated many college recruiters into offering scholarships and official visits.
Cain mainly played center on his high school team this past season. But he has proven he can face the basket and score too. Previously, Cain had taken visits to UNC-Greensboro and Penn State. He also mentioned previous interest in Utah and Indiana. Cain chose Virginia over Villanova.
"I don't plan on red-shirting," Cain said. "I am going to work hard and be ready for next season."
Cain has already qualified academically too. "I haven't signed yet because I don't have the papers," Cain said. "But once I get the papers I will sign them."
