Cornell took an unofficial visit to check in with the Bulldogs a few weeks ago and came away impressed.
"The D line coach (David Turner) is recruiting me and we stay in touch on twitter a good bit.
"They are one of the schools I am considering."
The Longhorns and Cornell are just really beginning to feel each other out.
"I haven't talked to them the last couple of weeks, but I will probably take a trip down there before too long," explained Cornell.
The spring has been rather quiet for the 6-4, 245 pounder.
"We don't have spring football here in Minnesota, so I have just been training to get ready for the season," said Cornell. "I don't really have any trips scheduled right now.
"I get to fly for free, so if I really want to go somewhere I can do that.
"I am not sure where I am going to go for visits right now. I haven't really looked into any of that."
While a summer tour has not been scheduled, the clock is ticking on schools looking to make an impression on the talented Cornell.
"I want to make my decision before the beginning of my senior year," said Cornell. "I want to go somewhere that I have a great relationship with the coaches and then I want to see how long those coaches have been together.
"Academics are going to come first though, so I am looking into who all has a really good business school.
"I don't have any favorites right now. Everybody is still even."
