Cannon Naming Clemson

Greer safety Sinclair Cannon has five schools on the top of his list, and he will pay close attention to how schools do this fall. Could incoming freshman Sergio Gilliam help get this star athlete to Clemson?

"I like Tennessee, Maryland, Pittsburgh, Clemson, and South Carolina," says the 6-foot-3, 190 pounder of his favorites, all of whom have offered. "I am going to wait and see how teams do this year. I want to see who is building and where I can be the best impact for them to be an even better team the season after that."

While Cannon is sure of his ability to help a team, he is not certain of his future position.

"All but Maryland are recruiting me to play receiver. I am probably willing to play some defensive back, but it depends on if the coach wants me to play there."

So will a team recruiting him to play wide receiver help their progress?

"It won't hurt."

Cannon rushed for almost 800 yards and 11 touchdowns while also playing quarterback for the Yellow Jackets. He also completed 14-of-24 passes for just under 300 yards and 4 touchdowns.

Editor's Note: Several insider sources have pegged Cannon to either head to Clemson or go out-of-state, and we agree. He'll get pushed from several out-of-state schools, but right now Clemson has the clear edge in the in-state recruiting war. It also must be noted that one of his good friends, Sergio Gilliam, is an incoming freshman at Clemson this year.
