Small RB Putting Up Huge Numbers

Junior to Watch: Orlando Kane Jr.
School: Lawrence, N.J.
Position: Running back
Size and speed: Orlando is 5-foot-9, 170 pounds. He runs a 4.4-second 40-yard dash.
Statistics: As a junior, Orlando ran for 1,600 yards on 230 carries. He had 16 touchdowns in total with 11 rushing, one kick return, one punt return and two touchdowns receiving. He also had 11 receptions for 198 yards. Orlando averaged 16.7 yards-per-punt return and a 24-yard average per kick return.
Honors: All-conference, all-area.
Favorite Schools: For now, Orlando lists Notre Dame, Rutgers, NC State, Boston College, Penn State, Syracuse and Virginia as his leaders. He has heard from more than 25 schools and already has an offer from Rutgers.
Skinny: Kane is electrifying. With great football speed and excellent vision, once he is in the secondary he's gone. He makes up for his lack of size with speed and elusiveness.
"I'm really not sure what position I'll play in college. I would like to play either running back or flanker."
Although not very big, he is muscular and strong. Very rarely does a defender get a good hit on him because of his ability to make people miss. College recruiters don't seem to be worrying about his size and he should have more offers once the new season begins.
