Cannon Talks Second TCU Visit

Mount Pleasant 2014 receiver KD Cannon visited TCU for the second time in less than two weeks on Saturday to watch the Horned Frogs first scrimmage.

TCU held their first scrimmage of fall camp on Saturday afternoon and although it was closed to media and fans, one of the lucky individuals who got an up close look was Mount Pleasant, Texas receiver KD Cannon.

The 6-foot, 165-pounder was offered by the Frogs a few weeks ago and his visit to the campus was his second visit in two weeks. While Cannon says the defense got the better of the offense on Saturday, the speedy receiver had high praise for what the Frogs offense showed on Saturday afternoon.

"It was great, they throw the ball a lot and they have a different style of offense from other teams," Cannon said of TCU's offense. "They've got some great receivers, #3 and #88 were two good receivers."

Cannon, who is being recruited by receivers coach Trey Haverty, says the fact that his recruiter would also be his coach at the next level will definitely have an impact that could benefit the Frogs.

"It's a big impact, he coached the receivers up real good," he said.

The scrimmage was the first time the team has practiced inside Amon G. Carter Stadium since the spring and Cannon could definitely see the enthusiasm coming from the team playing in the new facility.

"It was great, it's a real big stadium and the team was excited the whole time," Cannon said. "They had a lot of energy."

After practice Cannon said all of the TCU coaches spent time talking with him. What was their message?

"They just told that they'd love to see me at TCU when I graduate and to just keep up the hard work," he said of his visit with the Frog coaches.

Cannon, who also visited SMU's practice earlier on Saturday, says TCU is definitely one of the top schools on his list.

"It's a great school to play at," he said. "They're among the top schools."

In addition to TCU, Cannon holds offers from Baylor, Texas, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Texas A&M, Texas Tech and West Virginia.
