Alabama Football: Crimson Tide in Hunt for QB Prospect David Cornwell

The Alabama Crimson Tide may have plenty of untested quarterbacks in reserve, but there’s always room for one more.

David Cornwell, a 6-foot-5, 230-pound 5-star prospect out of Norman, Oklahoma already has an offer from the Tide, as well as Missouri and Tennessee. Corwell has stated he will commit early after taking a look at the landscape.

“I want to get the recruiting done,” Cornwell said. “I want to be ready to commit to my team for summer workouts and also commit to recruit for my college team.”

Fansided sister site All Coug’d Up, which covers the Washington State Cougars, has done an in-depth profile of the quarterback, and had this to say:

Cornwell is a HUGE quarterback and that is very obvious when you watch his film. He towers over his own team and opposing team which is a very good thing. At 220 pounds he is able to run over most defenders that come at him making him able to gain a few more yards after contact if he has to run the ball. Cornwell’s size is a great compliment to his ability to stand in the pocket and make a throw. He is not afraid to take a hit if that is what it takes to get the ball down the field.

The attributes that Cornwell already has are going to make him a great Division 1 quarterback. He is a very, very accurate QB and can put the ball where only his man can go up and get it. The long ball is another great addition to the skills that Cornwell already has. He can throw a ball accurately deep down the field and doesn’t just close his eyes and hope his man goes up and gets it.

While on the run he knows exactly where he is on the field at all times and knows where the other players are as well. His feet are great when scrambling and while moving within the pocket he doesn’t get tangled up in other players. Cornwell is able to focus down field and get rid of the ball without having to worry about tripping over other players or running into anyone.
