Duquesne Makes Huge Recruiting Statement


  Schenley High School senior guard Deandre Kane, who's been listed between 6-foot-2 and 6-foot-4, has made a verbal commitment to Duquesne University.
  As a junior, Kane helped guide Schenley to the Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association's Class AAAA championship. According to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Kane "is projected as one of the top players in Pennsylvania for 2007-08."
  Kane was also being recruited by the University of Pittsburgh, the University of Illinois, The Pennsylvania State University, The University of Wisconsin, Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, The University of Wyoming, and The University of Toledo.
  It is important to remember that verbal commitments are not binding however. As Kane was quoted in the Post-Gazette, "I didn't fully commit yet; I just gave a verbal commitment." Kane did add though, "I think I can go down there [Duquesne] and help turn things around. I like their facility. They have a law program I like."

"They have a law program I like."

Classic quote...Deandre, you mean "They have a Communication and Rhetorical Studies program I like?"

  I will be out-of-town during the Dukes football season this year, so I will not be personally involved anymore. But yes, the games will still be on RedZoneMedia.com.
  Thanks for the kind words.
