Tyrone Cornileus is one of the top linebacker prospects from the state of Georgia and he committed to Miami a few months ago. He took his official visit to UM over the weekend and talked all about it. Read on for the details.

Tyrone Cornileus took his official visit to Miami this weekend and talked about it.

"The trip was fantastic," Cornileus said. "They showed us a good time. We hung out with the players and the coaches."

Cornileus, 6-foot-1 and 195 pounds, talked about what he did all weekend.

"We went to Landshark Stadium," he said. "Friday, we came in and went to lunch. After that we hung out at the hotel then went out with the players. Saturday, we went to the stadium, got together with coaches, met the president of the school, went to lunch that day. Then we went back to the hotel, then went to dinner."

The standout linebacker, whose visit to Miami was his first and only one scheduled, talked about the highlight of the trip for him.

"Basically it getting a chance to get closer with the coaches and players," he said. "It made me feel more comfortable than I already was."

Cornileus talked about some of the players he had a chance to hang out with during the weekend.

"My host was Darryl Sharpman, the middle linebacker," he said. "I have known him for some time. He's a real funny guy and a hard worker. The second night we hung out with Tommy Streeter and Jordan Futch -- they were real cool, pretty much like Darryl, real cool, funny, people you would like to be around."

Cornileus, who said he spent a lot of time with fellow commitments Eduardo Clements and Shane McDermott, talked about what he learned on the visit.

"The only thing I learned about Miami is on the academic side," he said. "I learned about the different majors. I got a chance to watch a documentary on ESON about Miami and really liked that."

Cornileus is on track to graduate later this month and start college classes at Miami next month.
