Kane is listed at No. 83 in's Pre-Summer Rankings.

"[He's] a specimen . . . he is a muscular tank who looks like he could dominate a game,"'s Rob Harrington told "That doesn't happen at this point in his career, but he does run the floor well and mix it up underneath. His skill level has improved; he shoots jumpers from close-range with a high release and nice touch."
