The Alabama Crimson Tide found their quarterback for the Class of 2014 on Friday picking up a commitment from five-star prospect David Cornwell. The 6-foot-5, 230-pound star from Norman, Oklahoma announced his commitment on Twitter.
Cornwell is rated the nation's No. 1 pro-style quarterback by 247Sports and ESPN and No. 3 at the position by Rivals.com. He chose the Crimson Tide over offers from Auburn, Virginia Tech, Tennessee and over a dozen other schools.
As a junior, Cornwell passed for 2,742 yards and 27 touchdowns while also rushing for 755 yards and 6 more touchdowns. He is the 11th player to commit to Alabama's 2014 recruiting class and his pledge moves the Crimson Tide up to No. 5 in the 247Sports team recruiting rankings.
