Another name surfaced last night as a possible candidate to fill the gaping hole in UK’s lineup next season. That man is Kyle Cain, a former Rhode Island signee who has recently gotten out of his letter of intent with URI. Cain, a 2-star, 6’7″ player played at a prep school this past season and had a severe case of Erik Daniels Syndrome (aka Late Bloomer). He picked URI last October but his stock has gradually climbed and he presumably realized he could take a step up and play for a high-major.
I found one site describing Cain’s game, I have no idea if it is accurate but it sounds like a good fit for Cal and his system-
Cain, a 6’7″ power forward, is an athletic and versatile frontcourt star who excels with his ability to run the floor, and to make plays on both offense and defense. Cain is an excellent rebounder and shot-blocker defensively, and a strong finisher inside on offense. Cain also has a solid handle on the basketball, and can knock down open mid-range looks.
We’ll credit Friend of the Blog and FOXSports writer Jeff Goodman with the scoop as he tweeted last night that UK was inquiring about Cain. Goodman also said there are “a ton” of other schools doing the same thing- so don’t get too attached just yet.
