Officially committed to the University of Alabama! Roll Tide! 🐘Cornwell, who stands 6-foot-5 and tops the scale at 235-pounds, has been deemed the nation’s No. 3 pro-style quarterback prospect per Rivals.com. Not to be outdone, recruiting outlets 247Sports and ESPN have declared Cornwell as the No. 1 pro-style quarterback in the country.

While Cornwell’s verbal pledge to the Tide will be met with obvious joy, the commitment is far from unexpected. Essentially every recruiting service in the nation has listed Cornwell as a “Bama lean” for several months. The old expression, “not if, but when” certainly held true in respect to Cornwell and his declaration to Alabama.
With today's announcement, David Cornwell became the 11th verbal commitment in respect to the 2014 signing class.
In terms of the weekend, the Crimson Tide could be in for a very impressive 48 hours.
#Alabama got their QB today. I think it's just the beginning of a big weekend for the Crimson Tide. Stay tuned to http://t.co/u8agF4lQjJ.
