NORMAN, Okla. -- David Cornwell gets advice from Taj Boyd and Teddy Bridgewater. He's played football in Nebraska, Florida and in tiny Jones, Okl., and attended the Elite 11 Passing Camp, reserved for the best high school quarterbacks in the country. Tonight, Cornwell, perhaps the best high school quarterback in the nation and one of the top players in Oklahoma, starts the season for Noman North High School against cross-town rival Norman High. If you don't know who Cornwell is, you will soon. He's considered the prize of Alabama's recruiting class. Yeah, that Alabama. Cornwell has committed to play for Nick Saban and the two-time defending champion Crimson Tide next season. And tonight in Norman, he'll play his first game in a college environment. The Timberwolves, who made Oklahoma's Class 6A - the state's largest class - championship game a season ago will start the season against Norman on the University of Oklahoma's Owen Field. Cornwell is 6-foot-5, 241 pounds and considered the No. 32 player in the country, according to ESPN. Last year he played for Jones (Okla.) High, a Class 3A school before winning an appeal and becoming eligible to play for Norman North. He went to high school in Nebraska and Florida before coming to Oklahoma with his family for his father's job. Cornwell threw for 2,742 yards and 27 touchdowns last season at Jones and has received scholarship offers from Arkansas, Auburn, Colorado, Miami, Georgia, Oklahoma State, Notre Dame and more.
