If only we had a Simon and a Theodore on the roster as well...
Name: Alvin Cornelius III
Position: Wide Receiver
Year: RS Freshman
Hometown: Staten Island, NY
High School: Tottenville High School
2012 Stats: Alvin redshirted.
2013 Projections: Alvin's got a lot of quality upperclassmen ahead of him on the depth chart. He's currently in that third slot at Z-wideout behind Adrian Flemming and Chris Clark. Alvin might have to work his way up via special teams in the meantime.
How'd He Get Here?: Syracuse was the only school to offer Cornelius but that might be because we swooped in so quickly. UConn and Rutgers were sniffing around as well.
What'd Scout/Rivals Say?: Three stars from Scout, two from Rivals
Money Quote: "That's the city team right there. If you want to represent the city, that's the place to go." - Alvin on why he chose Syracuse.
Links of Wonder: MSG Varsity details Cornelius' commitment to SU.
Tweets of Wonder: Cornelius is a prolific tweeter. By the time you read one, there's five more ready to go.
What Does Shafer Think: No friggin' idea.
Interesting Nugget O'Interest: While Cornelius put up good numbers as a senior, he faced double and triple teams as a result of his junior year, where he exploded for 695 yards and 14 TDs on 36 receptions.
Let Us Get a Good Look Atchya: So I guess this is a video Alvin made for a SU class about concussions. Great soundtrack.
