KD Cannon may not look like your typical college athlete, but the seemingly undersized receiver is the new target of the Florida State Seminoles.
He is rated by many recruiting sites as one of the top-five wide receiver recruits in the country, and according to 247Sports, he is the No. 3 player at his position for the class of 2014. The talented receiver from Mount Pleasant, Texas has now accrued 12 scholarship offers, and the latest one could be on his list once it’s cut to five.
Cannon is just a 6-foot, 158-pound player, but don’t let his size fool you. He can play bigger than he looks and as a sophomore in 2011, he caught 61 passes for just over 1,000 yards and 10 touchdowns. A year later, in his junior campaign, he caught an amazing 102 passes for 1,600 yards and a phenomenal 26 touchdowns.
He has shown the ability to improve on some already-impressive numbers and could do the same in 2013 for his senior season.
He may be skinny for an ideal collegiate athlete, but if he adds a bit of muscle and continues to tear through competition in Texas, he will be sure to receive more offers in the near future.
With the speed and body control that he has, Cannon is easily a top-five receiver in the country and with a solid 2013 season, he could find himself as a top-three receiver, and maybe improve to a five-star.
The sky is the limit for this young recruit, and he could be a game-changer at the next level.
