Another one from the Aloha State to keep an eye on is defensive tackle Jonathan Kane (6-3, 285, 5.05) from Honolulu (Hawai’i) Kamehameha. Kane earned all-league as a junior and he could play both ways his senior season.
Kane is your typical Hawaiian big man. He moves well for a big guy and he has great strength.
Colleges that are showing interest in Kane are Hawai’i, Oregon State, Washington, Arizona, Michigan State, Utah and BYU.
BYU may have the trump card here. Not only does BYU recruit the Aloha State as good as anybody, but Kane is a member of the Latter-Day-Saint Church.
“Jonathan is a big strong kid,” Kamehameha coach Kanani Souza said. “He’s pretty quick off the ball, but his greatest asset is his strength.”
Kane is strong indeed. His bench 335 and his squat is over a very impressive 500 pounds.
Kane could play both ways for Kamehameha as a senior and some of the colleges that are recruiting him project as an offensive lineman on the collegiate level.
“Jonathan is very hard to handle for a high school offensive lineman,” Souza said. “He plays the run exceedingly well, but he can also move the pile up field.”
