One of the top linebacker prospects from metro Atlanta is Tyrone Cornelius. Cornelius, 6-1 and 185 pounds, is from Stone Mountain (Ga.) Stephenson High School. This past Friday he visited Georgia Tech.
"It was real nice," Cornelius said. "I got a chance to see a lot of thins that I've never seen even though I live right down the street. But it was very nice and the coaches showed me lots of love. They even let me know what they have planned for me as far as a position (OLB)."
Cornelius has a scholarship offer from Georgia Tech, Auburn and South Carolina.
"Right now my favorites are Georgia Tech, Florida, Alabama, South Carolina, Miami, Georgia and Auburn."
Cornelius recorded 118 tackles, three interceptions (one returned for TD), two caused fumbles (one returned for TD), one blocked punt, three safeties, 12 tackles for a loss, and four sacks in 2008.
