Cannon Close to Scheduling Visit

Adrian Cannon, a speedy receiver out of Auburn Hills, Michigan hasn't set any visits yet, but he plans on setting a visit with Iowa State sometime soon.

Adrian Cannon has already totaled his stats from last year in just six games for Avondale High School in Michigan. Adrian currently has 37 receptions for 520 yards and nine touchdowns; Avondale High's record is currently 4-2.


In addition to being an outstanding receiving prospect, Cannon is also a team leader.


"We're a pretty young team," Cannon said. "This year and last year I've had to step in a leadership role. I'm the only 2 year captain on the team."


Cannon is taking his time with the recruiting process but the Cyclones are definitely a contender when it comes to landing the wide out.


"I don't have a top 5 or 10 or anything like that but Iowa State is up top though," he said.


Other schools that have offered Adrian are North Carolina, Illinois, Kentucky, Maryland, Bowling Green, Toledo and Ball State. Cannon is also interested in Florida State, Miami (FL), and Michigan.


One of the key factors in Cannon liking Iowa State is the coaching staff.


"I think player and coach relationships are important and all of their coaches are so cool," Cannon said. "I really like the players."


Cannon also likes the group of receivers that are already in hand at Iowa State.


"They're experienced guys," he said. "They know the ropes and I'd really like to learn from them."


Like many people in the country, Cannon was extremely impressed with the Cyclones upset of then 8th ranked Iowa on Sept. 10.


"I didn't really think that they would win because Iowa's a pretty solid team, but they came in and did their job and really impressed me a lot," Cannon said.  


Cannon, the shifty receiver with breakaway speed will plan to schedule his visits very soon; a decision will come sometime after that.


"I really want to be comfortable," he said. "I really want to be at a place where I can call home even."


Cannon plans on majoring in business once he gets to college.
