Norwalk Forward Lands D1 Offer
Norwalk High School’s rising junior forward, Roy Kane Jr., landed his first division I offer on Saturday from Iona College.
The news was first reported by CBS Sports’ Jeff Borzello via twitter.
Kane and a number of his teammates from Norwalk were playing at the Iona team camp, and although they went 1-2 on the day (playing without rising sophomore big man Steve Enoch), Kane was still impressive enough to land the offer before Saturday had come to an end.
The versatile six-foot-six forward is coming off a huge sophomore season in which he averaged 19 points, 13 rebounds, 5 blocks, and 4 assists per game while leading Norwalk to a 13-7 regular season record and earning 1st team All-FCIAC honors.
Kane is believed to be the first sophomore to be named 1st team All-FCIAC since former UConn guard Rashamel Jones did so while staring at Trinity Catholic High School.
While Iona becomes the first division I school to offer Kane a scholarship, he’s also received early attention from Fairfield, Marist, and Sacred Heart. He’ll attend the Fairfield Elite Camp this coming weekend and is bound to attract more attention this summer.
“His recruiting has been going well so far, but I expect it will pick up after this July live period,” Norwalk head coach Tom Keyes said. “He’s got all the skills for a kid his size and I’m sure the coaches will see that.”
On the AAU circuit, Kane runs with a local TMT squad out of Norwalk that he has played with since middle school.
