St. Louis, Mo., Trinity Catholic wide receiver Demetrius Cannon is one of two wide receivers and eight offensive guys in the class for Louisville.
The 6-foot-3, 205-pound Cannon is a big, physical receiver that came on the radar early at Trinity Catholic and has really developed his skill set throughout his time there. He shared time with current Texas freshman Marcus Washington at Trinity Catholic as a sophomore when he helped the team to a state title.
The 247Sports evaluation from national analyst Allen Trieu said Cannon is “built like a linebacker. Thicker, muscular build and has arm length.”
“He has really worked on his craft and improved on areas that did not necessarily come naturally to him,” Trieu said. “Can use his size and strength to catch contested passes. Great option in the red-zone. Has improved ball tracking and catching away from his body. Shows more after the catch as well. Suddenness is above average for a player at his size. Still not a speed demon, but coupled with his size, his straight-line ability is more than adequate. Must continue the trajectory he has been on as far as craft.”
Cannon had 25 catches for 480 yards and four touchdowns during his first three years at the school. He averaged 11.2 yards a catch.
Trinity Catholic only played four games this fall and Cannon had a pair of TDs.
