After visiting a number of Division I schools this summer, Mount Pleasant (TX) wide receiver KD Cannon has now gathered enough information to make a list of top three schools that are sticking out in his recruitment Despite visiting twice, SMU is not one of them.
"OU (Oklahoma), OSU (Oklahoma State), and TCU," Cannon said. "They have great receiving programs, great coaching staffs, and good tradition."
Cannon got a chance to come to the Hilltop for an unofficial visit this past Saturday and says he liked what he saw. He was especially impressed with receivers coach Jason Phillips.
"They're a great school," said the 6-foot-1 165-pound playmaker. "They have a good coaching staff, and a great receivers coach Jason Phillips. He's a great coach"
The class of 2014 wide receiver has also visited Oklahoma, TCU and most recently Baylor, which he got a chance to see on the practice field.
"It's great. They have a fast paced offense, their practices are real good and they're just real fast," Cannon said about Baylor. "They get a lot of plays in."
As of now Cannon's recruiting is still in full swing and says he is expecting to pick up offers from the Miami and North Texas soon.
Although Cannon, who says his strengths are his speed, long arms and great hands, is being recruited by big time programs and tallied 61 receptions for 1,004 yards and 10 touchdowns last season, he still puts high value in his education, and that's why SMU could still have a chance.
"They have to be a good academic school," Cannon said
Cannon, who has not received an offer from SMU as of yet, already has more offers than a number of wide receivers graduating in 2013. He says that he is excited about it, but he won't let it get to his head.
"It's great but I have to keep working hard," Cannon said
