Norman North quarterback David Cornwell found out recently that he'd be able to play as a senior.

Now, Cornwell knows his future beyond that.

Friday, Cornwell committed to Alabama after a series of visits over the past two weeks.

He announced his commitment on Twitter, ending the post with “Roll Tide!”

Cornwell, No. 3 on The Oklahoman's Super 30 list of the state's top recruits, chose the Crimson Tide over a group that included Tennessee, Virginia Tech and Oklahoma State. The Cowboys had fallen off when South Carolina high school quarterback Mason Rudolph committed to OSU earlier this month.

Cornwell (6-foot-5, 235 pounds) played last season for Jones after moving from Florida.

With the Longhorns, Cornwell threw for 2,742 yards and 27 touchdowns and ran for 755 yards and six scores.

After the season, his family bought a house in the Norman North district and Cornwell enrolled in school there.

Cornwell missed what would've been his junior season after his mother fell ill, so he had to apply for a waiver to be eligible to play this season. The waiver was initially denied but after the family provided more information to the Oklahoma Secondary School Activities Association, including medical records, his waiver was approved.
