"Just wanted to be a part of the family," Cannon said to Scout.com Midlands Recruiting Reporter Erin Hartigan. "Why wait when you know?"
Cannon, who is rated as the a Scout.com four-star prospect as the No. 6 wide receiver nationally, became Baylor's 22nd known commitment in the Class of 2014.
As a junior, Cannon racked up over 1,600 receiving yards and scored 27 touchdowns to earn Scout.com All-Midlands, All-District and All-State honors.
Verkedric Vaughns, a 5-foot-10, 180-pound defensive back from Mesquite (Texas) Poteet was the second player to make a commitment to the Bears, news coming out moments after Cannon's, becoming Baylor's 23rd commit.
Vaughns picked up an offer from Baylor while on an unofficial visit.
"I'm officially COMMITTED to Ball out at Baylor University," Vaughns said via Twitter.
Recruited to play on the defensive side of the ball Vaughs did earn 10-4A Second Team All-District honors on offense in 2012 after securing 31 passes for 359 yards and three touchdowns. He also had more than 160 yards rushing on 23 carries.
Vaughns is rated as a Scout.com three-star recruit, checking in nationally as the No. 89 cornerback.
