There was some confusion as to Kane's schedule for official visits, so we asked the Florida OL to clear things up with his dates.
"I'm going up to NC State this weekend. I have always had the visit to NC State this weekend. I was originally scheduled to go to Clemson next weekend, but things have changed now. I am going to South Florida instead. I have already been to Kentucky."
Under Head Coach Chuck Amato, the Wolfpack has a reputation of being one of the hardest-working staffs in the country. Their early efforts with Kane could pay huge dividends.
"They offered me early," he said. "That shows they want me and that kind of stuff. I like Coach Demarest a lot. He is real nice. They have an up and coming program."
Hannaford will have a chance to meet some of the Floridians on the NC State roster while he is in Raleigh this weekend for his second official visit.
"I don't know anybody who is there now, but I have heard they have a lot of players from Florida up there."
Offensive Lineman often times enter college on the high-major level with the ability to play all positions across the line. Kane is not sure which position he will play at NC State if he chooses to play for the Wolfpack.
"I really have not talked to Coach Demarest about that, but I have played guard all through high school. I could play tackle, but I am not sure."
While Hannaford does not know anyone at NC State, he has been able to watch some of there games this year. He has also heard of one particular player, named Philip Rivers.
"I watched a couple of their games. I watched the bowl game also. I have heard about Philip, their quarterback. I have been hearing good things about him for awhile."
Impressed by his definite interest in the Wolfpack, StateFans decided to ask Kane if there is a possibility that he could commit with a good NC State visit.
"Yes sir, definitely. It just depends on how things go."
The Raleigh area may be hit by its first snow storm of the year this weekend. We asked Kane if the snow bothered him.
"I am supposed to get there tomorrow afternoon. I hope it does snow."
