McKay Cannon is a 6-foot-1 185 pound guard from Shelley, Idaho. According to Robby McCombs of Vanquish the Foe Cannon will be joining the Cougars in 2017 as a walk-on.
Cannon prepped at Shelley (ID) High School where he was a four year starter and became the all-time leading scorer in school history with 1410 career points. He was named to the All-State second team as a junior, and was named the Idaho State Junior boys basketball player of the year in 2012 after averaging 19.8 points, 4.6 rebounds, 4.1 assists, and 1.7 steals per game. Cannon was also an All-State wide receiver for the state champion football team. Following high school Cannon served an LDS mission to Chile (2013-15). He was recruited by Idaho, Idaho State, Montana, UC-Santa Barbara, Southern Utah, and Weber State, who he signed with.
At Weber State Cannon played in all 35 games as a true freshman (2015-16) and averaged 5.5 points and 2.7 assists, helping Weber State to the Big Sky conference title. In the Wildcat’s first round matchup vs. Xavier in the NCAA tournament Cannon played 37 minutes and finished with 10 points, five assists, four steals, and two rebounds. Unfortunately he saw less playing time as a sophomore (dropped to 13.6 minutes from 21.4 minutes as a freshman) and averaged just 2.6 points, 1.2 rebounds, and 1.5 assists per game.
