Welcome to the U, Cornelius Nunn
A talented local player completes the flip from Syracuse to Miami
By Cameron J. Underwood@UnderwoodSports Oct 17, 2018
The Miami Hurricanes got some good recruiting news on Wednesday night when Miami (FL) Palmetto 3-star DB Cornelius Nunn committed to the Canes.
Nunn, who was formerly committed to Syracuse, has good size at 6’0” 170lbs. But he doesn’t just look the part, he plays it, too. Nunn was an attendee who had a strong night at Paradise Camp, and has been a dominant force during the first half of his senior year at Palmetto. Couple those things with Miami’s need for talented DBs, and you have the recipe for today’s commitment.
As stated above, Nunn was formerly committed to Syracuse. He, however, was open about his desire to part ways from the northern school in favor of the hometown Hurricanes, and that has finally come to fruition.
Along with Syracuse and Miami, Nunn claims offers from many other schools, including Alabama, Auburn, Georgia, Kentucky, NC State, Nebraska, and Tennessee.
Nunn is the 18th commitment in Miami’s 2019 recruiting class, and 5th DB. He joins S Keontra Smith, CB Jarvis Brownlee, CB Te’Cory Couch, and DB Damarious Good at that position group in this class.
