Aztecs are involved with Cornelius

Just last week Evangel Christian Academy wide receiver Jared Cornelius picked up his fourth scholarship from San Diego State.

Cornelius was born in San Diego when his father was a member of the Chargers, "I don't remember much because I was so young," Cornelius said. "We go back to visit sometimes."

"They told me I'm gonna get the ball and that's always a top factor, not only playing but getting some touches," Cornelius said about his recent conversations with the Aztecs.

"I met (Coach McDaniel) in person once and he seemed like he was really interested and he seems like a cool dude," Cornelius told me. "Playing time is always a factor. I want to go somewhere I can play quick, I don't want to be behind someone. The coaching staff is important and who can ultimately help me get to the NFL."

Arkansas, Tulsa, Houston, and San Diego State have extended offers to Cornelius with several others expressing strong interest.

"I definitely want to take an official visit to San Diego State next season, Arkansas and Tulsa too," Cornelius said.

"I would definitely say one on one as a receiver is the strongest part of my game. I feel like there aren't that many corners that can match up with me 1 on 1," Cornelius said. "My footwork needs improvement, your feet can never get good enough."

The Eagles finished last season at 12-3 losing to future Aztec Brandon Porter and Curtis High School in the Louisiana State Championship game. Cornelius has gotten busy preparing for next season, "I've been doing a lot of resting the last couple weeks because we had a hard spring, but I've been in the weight room and I'm ready to get back out there."

Like many, Cornelius won't be making an early commitment, "I think I'm gonna wait it out and take my time on committing and signing. It'll probably a signing day decision."

The Aztecs have also extended an offer to Cornelius' teammate, 2015 offensive tackle Jerry Tillery.
