He recently visited with the Indianapolis Colts and the Baltimore Ravens.

Bucannon is the ideal size for his position, who has determination and reads well on the field. His younger brother, David Bucannon, is a sophomore safety for the Cougs. It will be interesting to see how he develops in the position over the next three years.
