At 6'5 and 230 pounds, David Cornwell already has the build of a college senior. Out of Norman (Okla.) North High School with a huge arm and good mobility for his size, Cornwell carries a consensus four-star rating, and is widely considered one of the top pocket passers in the country.
Cornwell was the first quarterback invited to the 2013 Elite 11 after a strong performance at the Dallas NFTC and Elite 11. He passed for over 2,700 yards with 27 TDs last season and ran for nearly 800 more with six rushing scores. On June 14 he committed to Alabama over offers from Auburn, Indiana, Kansas, Miami (Fla.), Missouri, Oklahoma State, Oregon State, Tennessee, Tulsa, Virginia Tech and Washington State.
Cornwell recently won a battle against the OSSAA for his eligibility in his senior year, which would be his fifth since starting ninth grade.
