The 6-7 ½, 245-pound Kale, who plays with BABC in the spring and summer, averaged 16 points and 11 boards as a junior for a team that finished 25-7.
``I think Providence got a huge steal," St. Andrews coach Mike Hart. "He's a sleeper. His work ethic is phenomenal. I haven't seen a kid improve this much in a short period of time in the 10 years I've been here."
Kale is the first player from St. Andrews to commit to Providence.
``I can't say enough positives about him," Hart said. "He's much more mobile than he was when he first got here."
Kale, who will attend ABCD in July, is a rugged inside player who does a lot of the dirty work and understands his role. He rarely takes ill-advised shots, controls the boards and has a nice jump hook.
