J.T. Cauthen dominated junior varsity competition before being moved up to the Cuthbertson varsity football squad.
Once he made the move, he was able to adjust to the competition and play extremely well.
“I feel like I progressed very well through the weeks,” said the 6-foot-1, 190-pound Cauthen. “The biggest difference was getting used to the speed of the players and how fast the game goes. It just took me a while to adapt.”
Cauthen knows his strengths as a player.
“I think I have good hands and that I’m very reliable,” he said.
College coaching staffs have already started to pursue the Cuthbertson standout.
“I've heard from Clemson and UNC so far,” Cauthen said. “I visited Clemson for the Boston College game and I’m visiting North Carolina this weekend for their game against Duke.”
Cauthen has already started thinking about where he will visit next summer.
“I've been talking with my coach about camps,” he said. “We've been talking about going to Ohio State, Georgia, Clemson, UNC, Florida and Florida State.”
During the first eight games of his freshman season, Cauthen played on the junior varsity and had 72 receptions for 887 yards and 14 touchdown catches and returned five kickoffs for scores. In four varsity games, he had 18 receptions for 213 yards and four touchdowns.
