6-5, C, Katie Cain, Pine Bush HS, Middletown, NY decommits from Delaware, considering Nebraska, Indiana, Minnesota, Virginia, Dayton and Oklahoma.

Delaware’s coaching change in women’s basketball has cost the Blue Hens a top recruit.

Kate Cain, the 6-foot-5 center from Pine Bush (N.Y.) High, has reopened her recruiting, said her high school coach Bill Lacovara.

She is now considering Nebraska, Indiana, Minnesota, Virginia, Dayton and Oklahoma, he said.

Huskers Add Top 100 Freshman Cain to Post Game

One of the top 100 players nationally in the 2017 high school senior class will join the Nebraska women's basketball program for the 2017-18 season, as Coach Amy Williams announced on Friday that 6-5 center Kate Cain will join the Husker program.
Williams said Cain will provide immediate help for the Huskers in the post, while bringing her work ethic and high character to the team.

"We're excited to have Kate join our program," Williams said. "She brings a strong back-to-the-basket post presence to our team and much-needed depth at that position. She's got great hands and a good presence around the rim. She is an excellent student, has great character and fits perfectly with the humble, hard-working culture we are establishing at Nebraska."

Here is another good article on Kate Cain (Bret Wagner, LJS)

I'm so I'm glad she chose to come to Nebraska. I think Lincoln is a great place and one of the best kept secrets for student-athletes.

Kate Cain was late addition, but also the right fit for Husker women

Cain could have gone to a program that won more than Nebraska did last year, but she liked what she saw and heard from the coaches.

“I love the coaches, and when new coaches are coming in it’s not always expected for them to have the crazy-great first year because the system is changing, the attitude, everything is changing,” Cain said. “And I knew what they did at their old school (South Dakota). They were very successful there. I knew Taylor (Kissinger) was coming in and she was a top recruit, and then I heard more about the 2018 recruits and I knew they were all really well-known and talented. And then at the end of last year they started having some upsets, so I saw it was coming together, and they just needed some time.”
