"I got injured in the second game and had to sit out for a while, but I came back pretty strong for the last four games. I think my biggest strength on the field is stopping the run and being able to read what is happening on the field," he said.
Cannon has piqued the interest of a number of programs and has been hearing from schools including Arkansas, Baylor, UTSA, Texas, Texas State, Oklahoma, Houston, Oregon State, Abilene Christian, Utah State, Yale, Princeton, UNT, and Navy.
"It's been exciting to have coaches reach out and go to Junior Days and everything Right now, the people who are really showing interest are Oregon State and Texas State.
"Texas State invited me down to their Junior Day about three weeks ago and the coaches were really making me feel at home and showing love. I couldn't make it to Oregon State Junior Day, but the coaches have been showing a lot of interest," he said.
The athlete, who plays a specific role in Shoemaker's defense, isn't quite sure as to what position his skill set will translate to at the next level.
"It depends on how this season goes and how our defense is set up. My position is really a safety and linebacker hybrid; you can cover receivers or you can be in the trenches with the linemen," he said.
Cannon says he has no more Junior Days planned, but is ready to prove himself this spring and summer.
"I do plan to attend camps and get my name out there. I know I'll be going to Baylor, Texas, Texas State, Houston camps," he said.
