ROSWELL, Ga. — Cade Fortin has had quite the busy summer.
The 3-star quarterback prospect from North Gwinnett High School (Suwanee, Ga.) was present at the Georgia football camp on June 11 and was in College Station, Texas, two days prior.
The 2018 prospect’s recruitment is just starting to pick up, and he’s a man of few words as his ability has just recently been cast into the spotlight.
He picked up his first big SEC offer on June 2 from the Aggies, and is beginning to receive more attention from big-time programs around the country.
“I was just blessed that they think I am able to play with the big boys,” Fortin said of his Texas A&M offer.
Fortin walked away impressed from his visit to the Lone Star State, citing the campus as one that stood out to him thus far in his recruitment. He also got to work out with offensive coordinator Noel Mazzone, saying “it had a good feel to it.”
Georgia offensive coordinator Jim Chaney got his shot at working out the young signal-caller two days later in Athens, where Fortin’s cousin, fullback Turner Fortin, is a member of the scout team. In all, the 6-foot-2, 207-pound quarterback reports 13 offers; nine of which came since May 3.
Included in the list are California, Vanderbilt, Kentucky, Colorado State and North Carolina, among others.
The Aggies and Tar Heels have been in contact with him the most, but Florida is another SEC team that has begun to show interest and is trying to get him down to a camp this summer.
Expect to see more SEC teams try and get into the fold as the state of Georgia’s No. 20 prospect for the 2018 class begins his junior season at North Gwinnett.
