Northwestern In The Mix For 2011 Center


Northwestern appears close to signing John Cannon, a big man from North Carolina who would enroll at NU this fall. Georgia, Old Dominion and North Carolina are also in the mix (although UNC doesn't have a scholarship to offer him). His visit to NU this weekend apparently went very well; Scout's Chris Emma tweets that Cannon says "Northwestern is definitely my favorite right now." The only two big men on NU's roster right now are seniors, so it's imperative that they add another center, especially a center who was productive in high school and is drawing interest from other big time programs.
