Kane is a Duck

Honolulu (Ha.) Kamehameha Secondary defensive back Dylan Kane talks about his decision to commit to Oregon.

Oregon has received its 12th verbal commitment from the 2015 class in Honolulu (Ha.) Kamehameha Secondary defensive back Dylan Kane.

He is the third defensive back to commit this year, joining James “P.J.” Locke and Jihree Stewart.

The 6-foot-3, 185-pound Kane, who also had offers from Boise State, Oregon State, Colorado, Nevada, Hawaii and Wisconsin, said he made his decision following a visit to Eugene over the weekend, where he came away impressed by the what the Ducks had to offer from both a football and academic standpoint.

“Once I went there and checked it out,” Kane said. “I just felt like it was the place for me.”

Kane told outside linebackers coach Erik Chinander the good news on Sunday.

“I felt great,” Kane said. “He was fired up too.”

Kane said the Ducks believe he could play either corner or safety at this point. With his decision out of the way, he’s excited to focus on his senior season.

“I can just play,” Kane said.
