Before entering the NFL as a professional player, Cain started off his career at Tampa Bay Technical High School in Tampa, Florida, and played as a quarterback for the high school football team.
He was ranked as a five-star prospect and made a verbal commitment to play college football at Clemson University under the direction of head coach Dabo Swinney.
Cain enrolled at Clemson University and played for the Clemson Tigers from 2015 to 2017.
Cain was shifted to the position of a wide receiver at Clemson. In 2015, while he was a true freshman, he participated in 13 games and recorded 34 receptions for a total of 582 yards and five touchdowns.
