Cannon holding steady at eight offers

Kd Cannon is regarded as one of the most explosive receivers in the country.

Mt. Pleasant, Texas wide receiver Kd Cannon turned in one of the most impressive seasons for a receiver in the country with his 2012 campaign. Rated as a four-star and nation's No. 5 receiver for the 2014 class, Cannon hauled in 108 passes for over 1,500 yards and 26 touchdowns as a junior. It wasn't a big surprise that he was named first team all-district.

What is a surprise is how recruiting has somewhat slowed for the dynamic receiver. He still holds offers from TCU, Texas, Baylor, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Texas A&M, Texas Tech and West Virginia but he hasn't added to that list for quite some time.

"LSU is showing me interest lately, they've shown a lot actually," he said. "Texas Tech, Baylor, Texas and TCU have come by the school. They're telling me to keep my grades up and to keep a level head. Texas came by last Thursday or Friday."

Cannon says Baylor is showing the most interest at the moment but he's not in any hurry to name a favorite. He knows every option he has at the moment is a good one based by their performances this season.

"All the teams had a great season this year, some started off bad and finished good but they all had pretty good seasons this year," he said.

The 6-foot-1, 165-pounder had an invite to attend TCU's game against Kansas State but was unable to attend. He has caught a few of their games on T.V. however and said the Frogs' win over Texas was an eye opener.

"I saw them play on T.V., it was a real big win for them, a real big win," Cannon said of TCU's win over Texas.

Playing time is one of the bigger factors Cannon is looking at when deciding which school to choose; the earlier the better. That's one plus TCU has at the moment after his conversations with receivers coach Trey Haverty.

"He's telling me that I have a great chance to come in and start as a true freshman," he said. "That's a big factor because I want to come in and start right off the bat early or at least have a chance to."
