Scouting Report: Kane Ioane

Name: Kane Ioane School Montana State Year 4Sr
Ht: 5-10 Wt: 205 40: 4.61 Pos: S

Bio: Big Sky Defensive Player of the Year and awarded All-American honors as a senior after posting 142/2/3. Consensus All-American the prior season after leading the league with 127 tackles, Totaled 92 tackles as a sophomore and 98 as a freshman.

Pos: Hard hitting, active safety very aware of what's happening on the field. Keeps the action in front of him, stays with assignments and constantly around the ball. Quick supporting the run, throws his body around the action and fights hard to break up the pass.

Neg: Not quick footed in pass coverage, hesitant to react and has difficulty staying with receivers out from their breaks.

Analysis: Productive collegiate safety with marginal size/speed numbers for the next level, Ioane could find his way onto a defense that employs a two deep scheme yet is a prospect that must make his mark on special teams.

I'm going to miss seeing Ioane flying around the field always around the ball making plays next year. I hope he gets a chance to show his stuff at the next level.
