Cornley Favors a Pair

Jamelle Cornley has taken one for the time for most of his life and it may have affected his recruitment. The Brookhaven (Ohio) star has a couple of leaders and he'll check both out soon.

For good or bad, Jamelle Cornley is the of those guys whose already been labeled. The 6-5 ½ senior at Brookhaven (Ohio) is an undersized power forward. Plain and simple.

But Cornley said that he's been working on his perimeter game and he'll get the opportunity to step out and shoot 17-footers in his final go-around at Brookhaven.

For now, the co-leaders are St. Bonaventure and Dayton. Cornley will visit Olean, N.Y., this weekend and Dayton the following weekend. He'll also host Penn State on an in-home visit – with the potential for an official visit if all goes well.

``So far, those three schools are the ones showing the most interest," Cornley said.

Cornley, who has a 3.4 GPA and scored a 15 on the ACT, said he devoted much of the summer to developing his perimeter skills.

``I know I can do a lot of stuff that coaches haven't seen," Cornley said. "I devoted the whole summer to perimeter work. Some coaches don't see it because when I go to tournaments and camps, there are so many slashers and three-men and it forces me to go to the post."

Cornley said he's also received interest from mid-majors like Bowling Green, Akron and Cleveland State and is getting some interest from Michigan and Pittsburgh.
