Rising So Cal Corner Prospect To Camp With UW

Because he missed almost his entire junior season due to an injury, Los Alamitos (Ca.) CB Darien Cornay is a player that recruitniks are just starting to find out about. The talented corner prospect is back to full health and he's ready to hit the camp circuit this summer in order to show everyone he's back and ready to prove he's one of the better cover corners on the West Coast...

"I broke my colarbone in the second week of the season," Cornay told Dawgman.com recently. "I had two surgeries, but now it's all healed up and ready to go."

Because there isn't a lot of film on Cornay, he'll need to hit the camp circuit over the next month and his first stop will be Washington's Satellite Camp at Golden West next Wednesday.

"He might be our best corner since our NFL corners -- Orlando Scandrick and Antoine Cason -- were here," Los Alamitos head coach John Barnes said. "He's much more physical and he can really play.

"Coach (Pete) Kwiatkowski wants to see him live because he missed last season."

In addition to his interest from the Huskies, Cornay is also hearing quite a bit from Boise State and he's getting some looks from Washington State, San Jose State and Oregon State as well.

Officially, he's only signed for Washington's camp next Wednesday at Golden West, but he said he's also planning to take in camps with Washington State, Nebraska and San Diego State.

"I'd say I have a high 'Football I.Q' and I put myself in position to make plays," Cornay noted. "I also believe I tackle well and I have good instincts."

While he's a stalwart in the secondary, the 5'10, 180-pounder also is a kick and punt returner and he expects to resume his duties on special teams this fall as well.

As a sophomore in 2013, Cornay was the third corner for the Griffins.

Dawgman.com will have more on Cornay in the coming weeks after his camp performances and as more schools get a much better look at what he can do on the football field.
