NORMAN, Okla. -- His journey has been filled with zigs and zags. Controversy. Legal issues. Transfers. Home schooling. And yet Norman North's "new" quarterback happens to be 6-5, 230 lb. senior David Cornwell, who's already so well known.

He's already committed to play collegiately for the team that's won the last pair of BCS National Championships - the Alabama Crimson Tide.

NewsChannel 4's Nate Feken caught up with the former Jones (OK) high school star, who has settled in Norman now to play one final prep season with the talented Timberwolves.

David Cornwell is considered by some to be the best high school football player in Oklahoma.  Cornwell has been through quite the year leading up to his final high school football season. 

After working with the OSSAA for an academic hardship and transferring from Jones to Norman North, he is ready to begin play football again.  The senior quarterback has also decided where he will play ball next year, for the Alabama Crimson Tide. 

Now that his recruitment is out of the way he can focus on helping Norman North High School return to the 6A state championship game.  KFOR Sports' Nate Feken has more.
