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.

  1. I am surprised that this much time has passed with no comment–is everyone really that locked in to the Braves? I see this as potentially a very good signing. I’m hoping that this bright young guy will improve every year he is here, a la Alec Kessler. If he comes close to that standard, this will have been a great signing.

  2. Nice that the Athens B-H put out an article on this signing, because I didn’t see anything on ajc.com. They are in full football mode with the occasional baseball story. I like that this guy has some shot blocking skills, we could use a tough defender down low. Although, Marcus Thornton threw a few back this season!
