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." Mon, Aug 12, 2013 01:41:00 PM
