The state of Florida is loaded with top notch receivers in the Class of 2014 but one of Florida’s top targets resides outside of the sunshine state.
Mount Pleasant (Tx.) High receiver KD Cannon is one of the top receivers in the nation and one of the top targets for Will Muschamp and his staff.
The 5-foot-10, 163-pound Cannon was supposed to visit this month but that visit appears to be in jeopardy according to his father.
“We were supposed to visit the second week of June,” Cannon’s father said. “But we have a 7 on 7 tournament that same weekend so we can’t make it. KD wants to visit Florida so we will definitely get there but we aren’t sure when.”
Cannon was supposed to visit with good friend Jamal Adams who is also from Texas and has connection to Florida.
“Jamal and KD are real close that’s who we were coming with,” Cannon said. “KD and Jamal talk all the time about wanting to play together and how that would be a dream come true for them. Florida having coach Joker Phillips will play a factor because that’s Jamal’s godfather so that’s a plus for Florida and someone on their side.”
Right now the elder Cannon said that his son doesn’t have any favorites but a few schools are recruiting him hard.
“Florida has been calling his school and talking to KD a lot,” Cannon said. “But right now we’re just listening to everyone and keeping everything open. KD will spend most of the summer training and he will also go to Chicago for the Rivals challenge and to Oregon for the Opening in July.”
Cannon says his son is looking for a team that needs receivers and wants to use the passing game in their offense.
