Know Your Future Jackrabbits: Canyon Bauer
The Jackrabbits continued their recruiting momentum from the weekend before by adding the electric Canyon Bauer from Sioux Falls O'Gorman. The 6'0 receiver has had a busy summer but made a few minutes to discuss his recruitment and commitment to SDSU.
Bauer prides himself on working hard and being a great teammate. He holds high expectations for himself and for others. Last year those high expectations helped him record 51 receptions for 853 yards and 8 touchdowns along with with 110 rushing yards. For that production Bauer was selected as a Class 3A All-State Selection and was one of the few non-seniors selected on the Argus Leaders Elite 45 team. One of Canyon's top assets is his speed and athleticism. At SDSU's Propsect Camp, Bauer ran a 4.48 40 and at the Riggs Football Combine he had a 37" vertical. To get better this season, Bauer wants to work on his route running and getting in and out of his routes faster.First, I want to thank my family for helping me be the best version of myself.. I would like to thank Coach Stiegelmeier and his staff for believing in me.. With that being said, I would like to announce my commitment to South Dakota State University🐰#JACKSBOYS19 @RobertArnheim pic.twitter.com/joxAyZapp0— Canyon Bauer (@canyonb123) June 26, 2018
Bauer camped all over this summer and earned offers from NDSU, USD, UND, and preferred walk-ons from Iowa and Minnesota. However, he picked SDSU because of the family feel. He also likes that it is close to his actual family in Sioux Falls and that they will easily be able to make t to games. While on campus he is thinking of a possible major in pre-physical therapy. Through the recruitment process he really enjoyed working with Coach Eidsness and Coach Arnheim and thought that talking to Mikey Daniel really was helpful.
Canyon is blunt about his goal for the upcoming season... win a state championship. He feels like this is the year and that everyone is bought in. O'Gorman has had good attendance at that summer workouts and he thinks this is the year.
Welcome to SDSU, Canyon.
