In the last few weeks, Pontiac (Mich.) Avondale receiver Adrian Cannon has camped at Florida, Michigan and Michigan State. What did the 6-foot-2, 189-pounder think of the camps and schools?
"Florida was the first camp I went to and it was really cool. I wasn't used to the heat down there, but I ran some routes and I was able to do one-on-ones. It was fun," he said. "I had a really good impression from Florida and both coach Gonzalez and Meyer were really cool. I liked it a lot.
"Then I went to Michigan for a day and I got to talk to coach Campbell and it was an honor to work with him because he coached Braylon Edwards and others. I did some catching drills and route work. Michigan State was good and I did some drill work there and went to the stadium and did some one-on-ones. All three of the schools were really cool and I'm planning to narrow down my list right before the season starts. Right now, I'm still wide open."
Obviously Michigan and Michigan State are both very impressive receiver schools. What are Cannon's thoughts about the possibility to play at one of them?
"That's really cool and both of those schools put out some big-time receivers and it would be great to be able to go to one of those schools and follow that tradition. But like I said, I'm wide open and taking it all in."
Cannon is planning to conclude the recruiting process after the football season.
After being all-league, all-area, all-conference and honorable mention all-state, what is he looking to work on during his senior year?
"Adapting from high school to college is big and I need to work on my speed and physicality," he explained. "Everything at the next level will be stronger, faster and quicker, so I need to work on those and keep improving them."
Cannon caught 33 passes for 620 yards and nine touchdowns as a junior.
The receiver prospect plans to attend the Florida State camp in July and is seriously considering going to Georgia as well.
"I'm going to be looking for the same thing I look for everywhere," he said. "I'm going to see about the player-coach bond, the facilities and the offense the team runs."
