Report: Kane to visit UNC

Dave Telep, of BlueChipHoops.com reports on his premium site that the Tar Heels will be one of five teams receiving a visit from Aliou Kane.

Kane, a 6-10, 230-pound native of West Africa who plays at Blue Ridge (VA), will also reportedly visit Minnesota, SMU, Iowa and Wake Forest.

IC's Recruiting Analyst Clint Jackson says of Kane: "When you look at his physique, you can't help being impressed. He's the kind of prospect that catches fans eyes as soon as he walks in the building. He's got a replica body of NBA star Anthony Mason.

"On the court, Kane is usually matched up with the opposing power forward or center. He's physically able to hold his position on the blocks and rebounds well on the defensive side. On the offensive side, however, he's got a lot of work to do. He doesn't have many scoring moves or back-to-the-basket creativity, but has been known to sink an occasional 10-14 footer."

Kane is ranked No. 70 in the class by PrepStars.

Stay tuned to IC, as we'll be looking further into this report and will provide the latest news on this developing story.
