Nebraska Latest College to Offer Mount Pleasant’s K.D. Cannon
The longest offer list among East Texas football players in the 2014 class belongs to K.D. Cannon. There's no sign that list will stop growing anytime soon.
The 6-foot, 160-pound receiver said he received an offer from Nebraska on Wednesday. The Huskers are the 13th team to offer the playmaking speedster, joining Baylor, Clemson, Houston, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, SMU, TCU, Texas, Texas A&M, Texas Tech and West Virginia.
Cannon had a monster junior season for the 8-3 Tigers, who reached the first round of the Class 4A Division II Region II playoffs. He led East Texas in catches (104) and touchdown grabs (25) and his 1,597 yards finished second behind SMU signee JaBryce Taylor of Lufkin (1,628).
Cannon is a headliner in East Texas' 2014 class, which appears to be loaded. Liberty-Eylau athlete Davion Hall has already committed to Baylor, while Lufkin receiver Jamal Jeffery and Gilmer linebacker Josh Walker have committed to Texas A&M. Newton athlete Kevin Shorter has seven Division I FBS offers: Arkansas, Baylor, Georgia Tech, Houston, Texas A&M, ULM, and Utah.
Longview defensive tackle Zaycoven Henderson and receiver Dorian Leonard are already receiving serious recruiting attenton. Henderson holds offers from Baylor, Oklahoma, and TCU. Leonard has an Oklahoma offer.
Jasper offensive lineman Terrell Cuney is another player receiving a lot of attention. He plans to attend Texas' Feb. 23 junior day. Whitehouse quarterback Patrick Mahomes has football offers from Texas Tech and Rice and baseball offers from Arkansas and Arizona.
