WR Cornell Powell Profile
Powell spoke with CUTigers recently to update his stance on
the Tigers and more.
"I'm just working hard and ready for my senior year to start," said
Powell. "I went to the Rivals and Nike camps recently. It was fun, and
the competition was the best. Being coached and learning new details
that will help my game was the best. I worked on route running and how
to stem and stick my defender."
A number of schools have furthered their talks with Powell in an
attempt to draw the rising senior away from the Tigers.
"Georgia, Ohio State and NC State have talked to me." Powell explained saying, "Just
the basic recruiting stuff - how I'd have a greater impact on their
programs and stuff."
Powell has noticed the attention from other schools, but he stands
firm with Clemson saying that his commitment is "stronger than ever."
The North Carolina commit will venture south to see Clemson again this
coming week for Dabo Swinney's High School Camp II and is highly
anticipating the visit.
"I'll be there Friday for the camp," said Powell. "I'm looking forward
to hanging out with the other commits, building with them and being
coached by Jeff Scott."

school football to finish. As his season quickly approaches, Powell
spoke of what could be a special season.
"I want to win a State Championship." Powell continued saying, "Being
on the same page and being disciplined is important. We have a great
team and have the tools to win. We just have to take them out of the
The 2016 4-star commit is 6-foot, 200. He's been rated by Scout as the
13th best wide receiver nationwide and as the No. 2 receiver coming
out of North Carolina.
In 2014 Powell finished his junior season with 67 receptions for 1,248
yards and 19 touchdowns.
