“He just told me he committed,” Patterson (N.C.) head coach Chris Chaney said Friday night by phone. “He did say he felt comfortable and really enjoyed the visit.”
Kane has not answered repeated text messages and voice mails.
“My boy goes there, Herb Pope,” Kane told me recently about Seton Hall. “That’s my boy. He told me it’s nice. I’ve been talking to Coach [Scott] Adubato.” Pope, a native of Aliquippa, Pa., is sitting out the year at Seton Hall after transferring from New Mexico State.
If the 6-foot-3 Kane eventually signs a National Letter of Intent during the late signing period beginning in April, he would be head coach Bobby Gonzalez’s first commitment from the Class of 2009. Kane is averaging 15 points, 4 rebounds and 4 assists for Patterson, the top prep program in the nation.
