...but his other line about how this has made him realize that he should commit if he loves a school and coach sure makes it seem like he'd commit to Michigan right now if he got the chance - or at least that he wishes he'd told them that he'd commit on the spot if offered.
Mixed feelings from David Cornwell (2014 QB)
I do not understand the block quotes or the Twitters or the kids today with their rap music...
Well now I like Cornwell even more. Hope we can find a way to take him too.
Sign this kid up. He's got a good head on his shoulders, he clearly can play. Bring him in.
Sounds like he may have been the coaches 1a. but he wasn't ready to commit, they went with 1b. and he jumped at the opportunity. Now 1a is wish he'd done the same.
With that said, I would agree with the poster above. If I read between the lines, and they're evry blurry...it almost sounds like he was made aware of DG's situation and if it doesn't pan out for DG and Michigan, he's the one they want.
Michigan wanted an early QB committment. Sensed Dave would not budge early. Find another top QB. Done.
If either of them were up for it, I'd take both Cornwell and Speight and redshirt one and get into the habit of redshirting all incoming QBs.
Speight or Cornwell->2017
RS Speight or Cornwell->2018
RS 2015 QB->2019
RS 2016 QB->2020
I'm sure Al has evaluated the top 3 QBs and may have felt Speight fit his offense better or was close enough to Cornwell? He probably wanted one of his top two QB committed. I would like to take Cornwell but the only way I think that will possible is if DG doesn't get his injury RS. It will be summer by the time the coaches know but I think they could flip Cornwell if he made a verbal to another team and DG doesn't get his RS.
