By now, everyone knows about the connections that Cornileus has to the University of Florida with both parents graduating from Florida and two cousins and a sister currently attending. Not only that but he has been attending Florida camps since he was eight-years old.
Cornileus (6-1¾, 175) is off to a tremendous start to the 2008 high school football season. Last week we updated you on his first two games of the season against McNair and Columbia. This week Stephenson traveled to Ware County and head coach Ron Gartrell of Stephenson came away with the 34-14 victory.
"Tyrone had his best game to date," Cornileus' father said. "He has always been an athlete that lives for the big games and this game was no exception. He ended the night with 15 tackles, seven solo, two sacks, two pass break ups and two solo tackles on kickoff coverage. Currently, Tyrone leads the team in tackles and with each game his performance is getting better and better."
Cornileus continues to get a lot of attention from some of the top programs around the nation. Georgia, Florida, Clemson, Auburn and Alabama as of recent have entered into the picture with daily letters. All of the respective programs are trying to get him to attend games and some are having success as he will attend the Alabama/Georgia game in Athens this Saturday then hit The Swamp for LSU/Florida. Cornileus is waiting for his first official offer but coach Gartrell thinks he will have his pick of colleges before it's all said and done. This is one that could be over very quickly if the Gators come calling.
