An Illinois (by way of NH) power forward offered by Nevada

Jeff Goodman at FoxSports has an item today in his column that connects Nevada to a prep schooler on the East Coast:

"...Kyle Cain, a 6-foot-7 athletic forward out of Chicago who has scheduled visits to Northern Illinois, Ball State and Wisconsin-Green Bay and also has offers from Rhode Island and Nevada, should receive extensive playing time..."

Cain is at New Hampton Prep (New Hampshire) and Scout has him listed as 6-foot-7 and 190 pounds. Elsewhere, we saw 6-foot-8 and 205.

He is visiting Northern Illinois this weekend.

Cain committed to Detroit in November, 2008 but then pulled back. MidStateHoops has some information on that:

"6-6 1/2 Kyle Cain of Thornton Fractional North has decommitted from the University of Detroit-Mercy. The athletic forward reneged his commitment earlier this week.

Though he verballed in the early period, he never signed a Letter of Intent which makes him eligible to commit to whatever school he chooses without penalty.

Cain is a highly athletic forward that plays hard and has a toughness about him. He’s a mid major level forward that rebounds, blocks shots, and finishes at the rim. He is a 4-man that has the potential to slide into the 3-spot at the collegiate level.

Cain has already set a visit to UT-Martin. He is also considering SIUE, Bradley, and Illinois State among others. He has four visits left and plans to use them all. Cain is wide open to all schools..."
