Kane excited by Big 10 offer

A defensive back we liked a lot at the NIKE Camp in Oakland over the weekend was Honolulu (Hawaii) Kamehameha's Dylan Kane. The versatile athlete landed his third offer on Wednesday and is a very intriguing prospect.

Dylan Kane first caught our eye at the NIKE Camp in Oregon last June. He's a big rangy safety in the 6-3, 190 pound range who offers a lot of versatility. This past weekend, Kane showed up 10 pounds heavier but more explosive than he did a year ago.

He tested well running a 4.67-40 (electronic), a 4.03 shuttle and jumped 33" in the vertical and his 110.55 SPARQ Rating was in the top 5 of the entire camp. He looked comfortable in coverage during the half-skelly period and fluid in the one on one drills.

At his size, he has the ability to play either safety spot but also offers the versatility to move in to the box and play some linebacker. He's going to keep getting bigger and has the frame to hold an addition 20 pounds without losing much athleticism.

On the recruiting front, Kane landed early offers from Hawaii and Nevada and landed one from a Big 10 power on Wednesday.

"Wisconsin just offered me," Kane said. "I'm very excited about that one because it's such a big time program. I talked to Coach Kauhaahaa, he's the one recruiting me and when he said they wanted to offer, it was definitely a great feeling.

"They like me as a kind of a rover and said I could play as kind of a cross between a safety and outside linebacker. At this point, it's still early in the process for me and I haven't narrowed my list down at all but Wisconsin is definitely up there and that's one school I know I want to officially visit in the fall."

In addition to the three offers, Kane said he's hearing from a handful of other schools as well.

"I've also heard from Colorado, California, Utah State, BYU and Washington State," Kane said. "They have all visited me at school and are showing a lot of interest right now. Right now, I'm open to everyone and just want to play this process out.

"I plan to do some summer camps but I haven't decided which schools I'll visit. Same thing with my official visits, I plan to take them in the fall but I don't have an idea where. I know Wisconsin will be one but I want to wait until the end of the summer and see who else offers before I make a short list."
