WR Sinclair Cannon
6-3, 190, 4.5
Greer High School
Greer, South Carolina
As a junior for Greer High School, Cannon used his impressive 4.5 speed to rush for almost 800 yards and 11 touchdowns last season. The 6-3, 190 pound prospect currently has offers from Clemson, South Carolina, Maryland, Vanderbilt, Tennessee, Duke and Pittsburgh.
Expect that list to continue to grow as Georgia, North Carolina State, North Carolina, and Georgia Tech are all showing significant interest. "My top five are Tennessee, Clemson, Maryland, Pittsburgh and Vanderbilt," said Cannon.
Recruiting coordinator and linebackers' coach David Blackwell is recruiting Cannon as an athlete for the Tigers. "Clemson is recruiting me for receiver, defensive back or quarterback. Coach Blackwell is a nice guy. He gets you really excited about the program."
Most programs are recruiting Cannon as an athlete that may play several positions, however Maryland is the only school recruiting him solely as a defensive back.
"I prefer to play offense," stated Cannon. The South Carolina native knows he may have to play defensive back on the next level, and he plans to work hard on his defensive skills during his senior season. "I plan to work on my coverage skills this season," Cannon added.
The strengths are numerous for this talented athlete. "My strengths are my running ability, my jumping ability and my catching. I also have very good vision on the field."
So when does the prize recruit plan to make a commitment? "I want to try to take my visits. Then I will probably make my decision."
Cannon plans to rest up this weekend as practice for the Yellow Jackets starts on Monday. We will continue to keep you updated on this outstanding athlete from South Carolina, right up through signing day 2004.
