David Cornwell is one of the top quarterback recruits in the country. And Saturday, he took part in the Dallas Elite 11 Quarterback Camp. Cornwell was extremely impressive, earning an invite to the Elite 11 Quarterback Finals, and drawing a comparison to an NFL quarterback from instructor Trent Dilfer:
How good was Cornwell? At 6-5 and 230 pounds, he already looks like a college quarterback with one year still left in high school and drew a comparison from Dilfer to Ben Roethlisberger, one that the Super Bowl champion surely did not make lightly. With elite arm talent and impressive athleticism for his size, Cornwell is the prototype for a pro-style quarterback.
How good was Cornwell on the whole? Good enough for Elite 11 coach Trent Dilfer to tell SB Nation Recruiting after Sunday's event that the Oklahoma product reminds him some of Ben Roethlisberger as a big quarterback with better-than-average athleticism and the strongest of arms.
"He's obviously very talented," Dilfer had said on Saturday. "He's so physical and he makes some hard stuff look really easy. For a giant man, he moves very efficiently -- I wouldn't call him sudden, but he's very efficient. He's an athletic kid and he's going to be a good player."
In the video above which is placed over his highlights, Cornwell discusses competition, what drives him, and the importance of earning an invite to the Elite 11 Finals.
As for his top schools, Cornwell really favors the SEC, as he told SB Nation's Wescott Eberts.
