Idaho State Offers Two Players

One thing I have regularly heard from Idaho State fans is that Joe O'Brien hasn't gone for many Idaho players... well, they have just recently offered scholarships to two Idaho Select players.

In the past week both McKay Cannon (Shelley High School, 2013) and Clark Wilkinson (Highland High School, 2013) have received scholarship offers from Idaho State University. Neither has given a verbal commitment at this point.


Wilkinson, a 6-6 forward, and Cannon, a 6-0 point/shooting guard, played on Idaho Select’s White team this past summer, leading them to an 18-3 record, a championship at the NW Premier Showcase in Seattle and a final-four appearance at the Best of the Summer in Anaheim.


Cannon, as a sophomore, was a First Team All Conference selection, averaging 14.3 points, 4.9 assists and 2.3 steals per game. He first came on to college recruiter’s radars when he opened Shelley’s 2010-11 season with a 35 point performance. Cannon is expected to serve a LDS mission after graduating from high school.
I am not sure there is a lot O'Brien can do to redeem himself in the eyes of Bengals fans... but going after Idaho players certainly can't hurt.
