Air Force lands Jacksonville DE

On Monday evening, Jacksonville (Fla.) Bishop Kenny defensive end Steven Cornellier went ahead and made his college decision.
"I committed to Air Force last night," Cornellier said. "I just decided that no matter what else I get as far as offers I was probably going to end up going there any way."
The 6-foot-3, 230-pound defensive prospect has been confident that he would select Air Force for a while. His other offers at this time included Elon, Florida International, Georgia State, and Wofford.
"I've known for about a month that I was going to end up there," Cornellier said. "I just had a long talk with my Dad last night and we decided it was the right thing."
Once the decision was made, Cornellier called and informed the Falcons' coaching staff.
"I called Coach (Clay) Hendrix," Cornellier said. "He just said they are really excited to have me and that Coach (Troy) Calhoun was real happy."
Cornellier said that the appeal of the Academy went above and beyond football.
"It is just a great opportunity," Cornellier said. "It also gives you options whether you want to serve or get out afterwards."
The two-star defensive lineman has yet to take a visit to the Colorado-based campus, but plans to make his way out there in December.
"I have basically been told everything there is to know about it," Cornellier said.
Cornellier said he will play defensive end at Air Force. He said he also believes he may be used as an outside linebacker in certain schemes and situations.
