Kane is sweet on Iowa

Will Steve Alford and the Hawkeyes be raising Kane in Iowa City? That is highly possible because one of the country's premier centers has announced he will visit Iowa. Since North Carolina has entered the fray, where will the center call home, Carver-Hawkeye or the Dean Dome?

Aliou Kane, a 6-10, 230 pound center from Dyke, Virginia Blue Ridge has named Iowa as one of the five schools he will visit. Kane is a native of Mauritania, a Northern African nation bordering the North Atlantic Ocean, between Senegal and Western Sahara nation. Will he complete the 2002 Iowa recruiting puzzle?

Aliou Kane is the ONLY player being recruited by Iowa to complete the 2002 class. The 6-10 muscleman would add rebounding and athletic ability to a class ranked as high as # 5 in the country by recruiting analysts.
