The recruiting attention aimed at David Cornwell has picked up significantly in the days since his standout Army Combine showing a few weeks back. Among the schools in most frequent contact has been Michigan.
“I actually spoke with Coach Borges (Wednesday) and he’ll be out here on (Thursday) to come see me throw,” Cornwell told GoBlueWolverine late Wednesday evening. “I really sense that I might get an offer, so I think that’d be really good.”
The Wolverines haven’t indicated that an offer is definitely coming, but Cornwell has picked up on a number of clues that tell him one just might be on the horizon.
“Just whenever I call them they spend a lot of time with me,” he explained. “They say, ‘we’re taking it slow… don’t worry… you’re on our list… you’re up there. They’re always telling me that they watched my film. They watch my film every week. It really feels good (to hear that) from Coach Borges. I asked if he was going to watch me throw, and he said, ‘sure man, I want to see it come out of your hand.’ That’s usually a sign… when a coach wants to see it come out… he is going to offer you.”
Cornwell recently informed GoBlueWolverine that if Michigan does indeed extend an offer, the Maize & Blue would immediately shoot to the top of his list. He has made it a point to inform the coaching staff in Ann Arbor of that as well.
Said Cornwell, “they’re almost on the side of, ‘if we offer him we don’t want to look bad if he doesn’t commit to us. How high do we rank on his list?’ I think Michigan is sensing (now) that they’re toward the top of my list…top three. Hopefully they sense that because that’s how I feel. I hope I’ll receive an offer from them.”
One factor that could potentially play in his favor is his plan to be an early enrollee.
“It’s more than a possibility… that’s actually what’s going to happen,” replied Cornwell when asked if he will enroll in college next January. “I’m actually on track to have all of my credits done by football time. I almost have to take it a little bit slower just to stay in high school and be eligible. I could (graduate this year) if I really wanted to, but I’m going to take it slow and have enough for football next year.”
