Aaron Cann may be a relatively unfamiliar name to you right now, but you can expect for that to change fairly soon. This young man could certainly turn out to be one of the better prospects from out of the 2010 recruiting class.
Standing around 6-3 and weighing approximately 250 pounds, Cann without question possess great size for the next level. Not only does he possess the size, but he also has a very unique skill set. The Bamberg native explains… "I'm real athletic," said Cann, who is also known as A.J. in the town of Bamberg, SC. "I keep my hands inside. I can use my hands really well. I'm also pretty strong. I think I use my strength well."
Due to Cann's size and athleticism, the Red Raiders were able to utilize the big man at several different positions on the field this past fall. "I played a lot of different places on the field last season," Cann informed SCPrepNation.com. "I played defensive tackle, defensive end, and offensive tackle."
When asked about his numbers from this past season, Cann was a little uncertain of his season ending stats. However though, we were informed of his numbers midway through the play-offs. At the conclusion of week #12, the 2010 stud had received credit for 84 tackles, 14 sacks, 22TFL, and 2 forced fumbles.
The numbers mentioned above don't sound too shabby to say the very least. I guess that explains why several BCS programs have been expressing heavy interest in the Bamberg Ehrhardt star. "I've been getting attention from South Carolina, Virginia Tech, Clemson, Alabama, LSU, Georgia Tech, Oklahoma, Maryland and North Carolina so far," Cann said. "Out of all the schools that have been recruiting me, Virginia Tech has probably been coming after me the hardest. They've been down quite a few times to check on me. I never really had a chance to talk with them because I was always in class. But according to my coach, they like me a lot."
Could Coach Beamer and Company be the first major BCS program to extend an invitation to 2010 standout? We will certainly keep you posted.
Stay tuned for much more!
