Kofane Pops For Big East

Brice Kofane was looking at Harvard but didn't get admitted. Once the Ivy League situation fell through, he became a target of big schools.

The Providence Friars added a frontcourt piece this week. Brice Kofane, a 6-foot-8 power forward out of Charlottesville (Va.) Miller School, picked the Friars after looking at George Washington, Penn State, Iowa and Georgia Tech. Most of the schools came late in the picture once Kofane didn't gain entrance to Harvard.

The Friars won out after a visit.

"He loved it," Albany City Rocks coach Jim Hart said. "He thinks he's got a chance to play right away. They've got a chance to be good. They could be a high-wire act."

Keno Davis was swayed by Kofane's ability to man different spaces on the floor. "They like his versatility that he can guard the perimeter. I think they'll play him mostly as a face up four. He changes the game. He's something different than what everyone else has. His asset is what he can bring defensively. He's got to prove it on the offensive end."
