Kane Back Open; Four Schools In The Mix

DeAndre Kane is one of the better available guard prospects left in the 2009 class, and he's currently looking at four schools.

DeAndre Kane's recruitment is an up and down affair.

In the summer of 2007 he was a Duquesne commit, then just a few months ago Seton Hall was the school with a verbal commitment, now neither school is on his list and he's looking at four.

"He's basically wide open, but his favorite schools right now are Marquette, Virginia, Rhode Island and Marshall," Patterson Prep head coach Chris Chaney told Scout.com.

"I think he's just looking for a place where he feels comfortable and can play a lot right away and all that kind of stuff," he continued. "I told him he needed to make an educated decision instead of making a rushed decision."

With the season coming to an end, Kane, a 6-foot-3, 180-pound guard, will now look to set up a pair of visits.

"I think he's going to try and visit when he can fit it in with his schedule and their schedule," Chaney said. "I think he'll go to Marquette and Rhode Island soon, and he's already visited Marshall."

Kane, originally a Pittsburgh native, has spent the year as a post-grad at Lenoir (N.C.) Patterson Prep. According to Chaney, he's proven himself as a high major prospect, but that doesn't mean he should play in a big six conference.

"He can play at any school, but knowing him and knowing what he wants and that's to play right away, that's why he has Rhode Island and Marshall so involved in the situation."

"He's a tough kid," Chaney said. "He plays very hard. He knows how to play and he's more of a scorer than he is a shooter. He can shoot it, but he's a better scorer than shooter. He's a tough physical defender."
