VirginiaPreps.com this weekend profiled Aliou Kane, a 6-10, 230-pound native of West Africa who plays at Blue Ridge (VA). The article lists 12 schools that Kane says have offered a scholarship - including UNC.
Inside Carolina's Recruiting Insider Zeke Martins clarifies that Carolina has not offered a scholarship to Kane. The Tar Heel staff, at this point, is still in the scouting phase of his recruitment.
Kane is listed at No. 83 in PrepStars.com's Pre-Summer Rankings.
"[He's] a specimen . . . he is a muscular tank who looks like he could dominate a game," PrepStars.com's Rob Harrington told TerpHoops.com. "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."
