"Iowa's spring game was really good," he said. " They went over their board with defensive linemen there now, and if i go there, I'd have a really good chance of playing early just because of the players that will be there because there are so many juniors and seniors that will be leaving."
"They were my first offer. That showed me that they really respect me as a player because they pulled the trigger before Minnesota. They're four hours away, but they came up to see me. They offered me first. That's really respectful of them and that meant a lot in my recruitment and how I think about Iowa."
Some schools see Cornell as an outside linebacker, others as a hybrid, but at Iowa, he says, "Traditional defensive, but they can move me around just because of how athletic I am."
Next up for visits, Cornelly said, "We're going to Northwestern next Saturday."
