ESPN is higher on Kane than the other two services.  They list him as a defensive end, but that was shortly after his junior season, and they indicate in his profile that with added size he will be a defensive tackle in college (he was about 265 pounds when the scouting report was first done).  His measurables and build indicate that he’ll be a defensive tackle for the Hokies, though some have mentioned the interior offensive line, specifically center, could also be a possibility.
