Breaking News: DeAndre Kane Not Committed to Seton Hall

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. — The question of whether DeAndre Kane actually committed to Seton Hall or not seems to have been answered — and the ongoing saga of his recruitment looks like it will continue.

"Nah," Kane scoffed when asked if his commitment to the Pirates was strong. "I'm going to wait until April."

After Kane's Patterson School (N.C) fell to Winchendon School (Mass.), 81-70, in the HoopHall Classic in Springfield, Mass., he told the NBE Basketball Report about the schools he’s considering.

"Marshall, Pitt, Seton Hall, Marquette," Kane said, adding that he’s visited both Seton Hall and Pittsburgh.

Kane, a 6-3 guard who transferred to Patterson from Schenley (Pa.) prior to the season, said he’s looking for minutes right away.

"Playing time," he responded when asked what will factor into his decision. "I want to go somewhere where I can come in and play."

He will need to play better than he did Saturday if he is going to contribute immediately in the Big East, however. Kane made just 4 of 15 shots from the field, including hitting just one of his eight three-point attempts. He finished with 10 points, two rebounds and four assists for the top-ranked Bulldogs.

Despite the upgrade in competition and the increase in exposure that comes with playing for Patterson, Kane was undecided on whether he liked it better. "Schenley was way easier," he said. “The players weren’t strong enough. So there’s definitely better competition.

"But there’s nothing like playing in front of your home crowd."

Could that be a sign that he could be leaning towards Pitt? Or will his need for playing time send him to Marquette? Or will he end up at Seton Hall after all?

With DeAndre Kane, it’s always a mystery.
