Quarterback David Cornwell, one of the top prospects in the state, is switching schools.

Cornwell enrolled at Norman North last week after spending the last year at Jones High School.

Cornwell (6-foot-5, 215 pounds) threw for 2,742 yards and 27 touchdowns last year with just eight interceptions.

He also ran for 755 yards and six touchdowns for Jones (11-3).

Cornwell has an offer from Indiana and has drawn attention from schools around the country, including Alabama and Michigan.

At the recent U.S. Army Combine in San Antonio, Cornwell was named to the Rivals.com All-Combine first team.

Cornwell joins a Norman North team that made a huge splash this season, advancing to the Class 6A championship game.

They did it with a pass-heavy offense led by senior quarterback Peyton Gavras, who threw for 3,544 yards and 40 touchdowns.

While Norman North's top three receivers will graduate, the Timberwolves do return tight end Payton Prince, who had more than 500 receiving yards and Tyler Sipe, who had 18 catches including three touchdowns.
