Oregon received a tremendous boost in the defensive backfield with a pair of commitments coming by way of Dylan Kane (3-Star/Honolulu, HI) and 2016 class member Brady Breeze (4-Star/Portland, OR).
Kane, a 6-foot-3, 195 lb. hard-hitting safety has been an Oregon lean for some time and made his official pledge following his visit this past weekend.
“I knew going into the visit I would probably commit to Oregon,” said Kane. “I wanted to have this done before (the) season and that was the reason I made this trip as soon as I could. I know a lot of players that have gone to Oregon and are there, it’s very comfortable for me.”
The multi-talented Hawaiian-based prep makes opposing wideouts pay for coming into his lanes and, concurrently, is a quarterback’s nightmare with the ability to bait passes.
“I love the coaching staff and the academics at Oregon,” said Kane. “That’s really what set them apart was the academic support. I know they are going to take care of me and help me succeed. That says a lot when they put in that much effort off the field. Oregon definitely felt like the right place when I was there, and I knew it’s where I wanted to be.”
“I was just thinking about it, and there wasn’t any other school I wanted to go to,” said Breeze “I figured just go for it, so I committed. It just felt right. All of the coaches were unbelievable on my visit and it felt like home. God was telling me to go there. Oregon is the only shirt I’ve ever worn, the only school I wanted to go to. It’s actually a dream come true for me and my family.”
We, The Oregon Faithful, will remember Breeze’s uncle, Chad Cota, as one of the driving forces behind Oregon’s defense during the 1994 Rose Bowl season.
“Coach Neal was stoked. He was so excited to have me on board. He said he can’t wait for me to be a safety. He said they could use me this year. My parents and my uncle Chad were all pumped for me. We celebrated that night, it was a great day for us.”
