Mt. Lebanon wideout Aidan Cain commits to William & Mary

Saturday, January 27, 2018 | 3:55 AM

When college recruiters visited Mt. Lebanon, football coach Mike Melnyk told them to keep their eyes on little-known Aidan Cain.

The wideout had Division 1 talent, Melnyk told them, but knee surgeries cost Cain his sophomore and junior seasons. Ultimately, Cain proved his coach correct with a 101-reception senior season, and this week he committed to William & Mary, an FCS team in the Colonial Athletic Association.

Cain (6-0, 170) also listed offers from Dayton and Morehead State, and announced in December that Pitt had extended a preferred walk-on invitation.

The Trib 25 selection led the WPIAL with 1,749 receiving yards, and set WPIAL single-game records with 27 catches and 350 yards against Pine-Richland.

Mt. Lebanon teammate Colby Sorsdal, an offensive tackle, also is a Williams & Mary commit. Another teammate, defensive lineman Coleman Coco, is headed to Colgate, which visits Williams & Mary in Williamsburg, Va., for a game in September.
