Cornileus likes Tech, but likes Miami better

By DARRYL MAXIE / dmaxie@ajc.com

Stephenson linebacker Tyrone Cornileus says he hopes to make a commitment by the end of June. To whom will he commit, however, remains the question.

Georgia Tech is high on his list, though Miami is the leader in a group that includes Alabama, Auburn, Michigan and South Carolina. All told, he has 17 scholarship offers.

Cornileus was vague about what it would take for Tech to overtake the Hurricanes. “Pretty much just make me feel very loved,” the answer he gave CaneSport.com, leaves itself open to many interpretations.

This guy’s selfish and pretentious. Your FAMILY should make you feel “very loved”, not a University; get that through your selfish head. I guarantee he will wind up in trouble with the law with whichever school he attends, and I hope it’s not TECH.

Fourth,

When you play college football that becomes your second family. If Miami was more welcoming then i dont blame him. Remember he has to spend at least 4 years there.

He should go where he feels comfortable, has the best chance of playing, the best chance of playing for a winning team (GT Football has a VERY bright future) and the best place for his future. I hope he makes the right decision regardless of where he decides to attend college!

“Make me feel very loved”? Is that code for cash? If so, come on over, we got more than the “Caints”.

Hey Reality Check,,,get real!!! The student to whom you are referring has already taken more math than any Dawg…and has the ability to learn more in a Summer than most of them can learn in 4…I mean 5 years!

The “reality” is that you cannot grasp the concept that some student-athletes are actually trying to earn a degree.

The best $10 a month ever spent, the AJC picking up Maxie’s monthly bill to Rivals.com so that he can “report” recruiting stories.

Go to Tech, you want be 1st round worthy, but you’ll have good hotdogs close to you after your annual UGA beat down. Sorry you missed out on the win this year, it wont happen again for 7 to 8 more years!

Just what purpose does this bit of info serve? I mean, do we really care whether this guy needs to “feel the love”? I am not sure why I even read this! JMHO

Tech and Miami both average about 30k a game. He should be looking at other schools if he actually has offers from them.

Just a word or 2….Grinch Y don’t U take a look @ the APR ranking …and U will C that “THE U” in the TOP 10 …that’s total GPA for all athletes…and the football scores are not @ the bottom!
It appears that U and most don’t know that The U is a private school and the standard are not like most. This young man will get a high quality education and become a better player because of
competition and the 50 plus NFL players who came back and work out with the TEAM!

In Randy we trust!

Well considering Tech has beat Miami four years in a row and counting, it should be a no-brainer.

He probably doesn’t want to go to tech because he prefers his colleges to actually have girls in attendance. No the three in the library don’t count.
