Former Auburn quarterback Cam Newton made his way back to Atlanta on Monday to participate in his “Cam Newton Memorial Day 7-on-7 Classic.”
The former Heisman winner and 2015 NFL MVP spoke with 247Sports’ Keith Niebuhr to discuss his younger brother Caylin, a three-star Class of 2017 quarterback out of Grady High School in Atlanta.
So far, Newton has liked what he’s seen from his younger brother.
“Caylin has an exceptional talent, and the more he plays, the more I see he’s more than a quarterback. He’s very smart and not only that, he brings this high IQ to the game of football,” Newton said of Caylin. “He’s been playing safety, running back, he’s been playing receiver, as well as quarterback. And having all that type of talent out there is always good on a pass-driven game.”
Caylin has received two reported offers: Kentucky Christian University and Savannah State.
While Newton has enjoyed being able to help guide his younger brother in his recruiting process, he said he doesn’t see himself coaching at any higher level than high school.
“Nothing higher than high school football,” Newton said.” The reason is, I have so much respect for the Gus Malzahns, Dabo Swinneys, the Nick Sabans, the Mark Richts of the world. Realistically, they’re with their players the majority of the time and their actual blood family a minority of the time. I just can’t do it.”
