Having two commitments at wide receiver before the end of February is a good thing for the Texas Longhorns.
Not just because Houston Sharpstown’s Roderick Bernard and Abilene Cooper’s Lorenzo Joe can be productive players for Texas. But because it’s also giving Darrell Wyatt a chance to add one of the most explosive playmakers in the country, Mount Pleasant’s K.D. Cannon. He’s the top receiver prospect in Texas and 2014’s No. 6 overall state prospect in the American-Statesman’s Fabulous 55.
