Baylor true freshman WR KD Cannon hauled in six catches for 189 yards and a touchdown in Friday's 63-21 victory over Buffalo.

The true freshman streaked by Buffalo's secondary to haul in a pretty Bryce Petty pass around Baylor's 40-yard line early in the first quarter, racing untouched to an 89-yard touchdown reception. Last week, Cannon shredded Northwestern State for six catches, 223 yards and three touchdowns (touchdown catches of 50, 81 and 42 yards). Cannon, the best freshman receiver in college football, is drawing attention from draft analysts. "Cannon has already established himself as a legitimate speedster on the perimeter, while also exhibiting the explosive running skills that make him a threat to score whenever he touches the ball," NFL.com's Bucky Brooks wrote last week. "It won't be long before NFL scouts start paying attention to his impact as a playmaker on the outside." Through three games, he already has 10 catches, 471 yards, and five touchdowns.

NFL.com's Bucky Brooks believes NFL scouts will soon start paying attention to Baylor true freshman WR KD Cannon.

Cannon hauled in six passes for 223 yards and three touchdowns against Northwestern State on Saturday. The No. 46 overall recruit -- and the fifth-ranked receiver -- in the 2014 class had touchdown catches of 50, 81 and 42 yards. "The freshman sensation has certainly lived up to the hype that accompanied his status as a five-star recruit," Brooks wrote. "Cannon has already established himself as a legitimate speedster on the perimeter, while also exhibiting the explosive running skills that make him a threat to score whenever he touches the ball. It won't be long before NFL scouts start paying attention to his impact as a playmaker on the outside."

Baylor true freshman WR KD Cannon shredded Northwestern State on Saturday, catching six balls for 223 yards and three touchdowns.

"He just knows how to get open," backup quarterback Seth Russell (starting in place of Bryce Petty) said. "I just threw it up and he went and got it." Cannon, the No. 46 overall recruit and the fifth-ranked receiver in the 2014 class, had touchdown catches of 50, 81 and 42 yards. "I've watched a lot of receivers, seen a bunch over 30-something years in coaching," said Bears' HC Art Briles, talking about his impression after watching Cannon play a high school game last fall. "I came back and said that's the best guy I've ever seen as a high school receiver, no doubt. He's good. He's different." Cannon was featured because Antwan Goodley (quad), Levi Norwood (wrist) and Clay Fuller (collarbone) were all out. He's one of the nation's most exciting first-year players.

K.D. Cannon, the No. 46 overall recruit and the fifth-ranked receiver in the 2014 class, publicly committed to Baylor on Saturday.

Verkedric Vaughns, an athlete from Mesquite, Tex., committed shortly after to give Baylor 23 recruits in the class. Cannon chose Baylor over Texas Tech, and also considered Oklahoma, Florida and Ole Miss. Cannon, an explosive receiver considered one of the top playmakers in the class, collected 106 catches for 1,600 yards and 26 touchdowns as a junior at Mount Pleasant High School in Texas. "They told me I can come in as freshman and get playing time, maybe even start," Cannon said. "That means a lot. Plus, them being like a family really won me over."
