John Cannon Chooses Bulldogs

Mark Fox added another big to his 2011 recruiting class – John Cannon, a 6’11” center from Burnsville, North Carolina.  Cannon chose Georgia over Northwestern and North Carolina, however, to be fair, he was only guaranteed a walk-on opportunity at UNC.

The Athens Banner-Herald put out a nice piece with some background information on Cannon, along with some quotes from the young man, the best of which had to be, “With my work ethic, I can really do some damage my first year.”

Coach Fox now has one scholarship remaining, which he can either offer to another player for next season or save for 2012.
