Cann Headed To USF

Zarron Cann isn't going very far from home. The 6-fot-6 forward out of Brandon High announced that he'll lace them up for the Bulls.

Robert McCullum, the head coach at South Florida, didn't have to go far in recruiting Zarron Cann this summer. The standout forward from nearby Brandon High was injured most of the summer and lives just 20 minutes from the campus.

According to his high school coach, Mark Hermann, the Bulls had too many positives to turn down. "I think what it boiled down to was that he was most comfortable with Coach McCullum and the fact that he could stay at home."

Cann missed the spring and summer circuits with a serious knee injury. However, heading into his senior season, it's full steam ahead. "As of right now he just recently got cleared by Dr. Leffers who did the surgery on his knee," Hermann said. "He should be 100% probably around December. He put on about 30 pounds during the process of being out. He's 6-foot-6 and 270 right now so he needs to get down to 250."

Cann is a unique player. He can step out on the perimeter and keep defenders honest. However, he's at his best when he's bouncing around inside making plays.

"They look to use him from the perimeter and the inside. He's a 6-6 kid who can rebound at a high level and can guard kids that are 6-8 and 6-9."
