Commit #20

With one commit already in the bag on Tuesday night, it couldn't get much better for the UTSA staff. Unless a second commit would come in, and it did.

Shoemaker Linebacker Diamon Cannon has had numerous trips to UTSA and in the end, that familiarity and level of comfort is what put the 'Runners over the top.

"Every time I went to UTSA I had a great time. I felt at home and I felt it was the place for me," said Cannon.

It was late Tuesday evening when Diamon decided to pick up the phone and call the UTSA Coaching Staff and give them the good news.

"I talked to Coach Eliano, Coach Coker, and the defensive coordinator (Neal Neathery), about an hour and a half ago. They said it was the best news of the night," said Cannon.

Diamon is a 6'2" 215lb athlete who also has 4.58 speed. He can easily fit the mold of the "Hawk" backer or even fill the role of one of the strong safety spots.

"Coach Neathery was telling me I can play both, a little bit of safety and linebacker," said Cannon. He chose UTSA over eight other offers: Northern Illinois, North Texas, Nevada, Sam Houston State, New Mexico State, Tennessee State, Texas State, and Navy.
