Early signing period: 2019 S Cornelius Nunn signs with Syracuse

A welcome return to the class of 2019 for Nunn, who went from the Orange to Miami then back to SU.

Welcome to college football’s early signing period for the class of 2019! The Syracuse Orange will be adding new recruits from Wednesday to (maybe) Friday. As each player signs, we’ll be posting profiles here on TNIAAM. Next up? Cornelius Nunn, who completed the rare “re-return” after decommitting from Syracuse and heading to Miami.

Twitter feed: @NeilNunnJr5

Hometown: Miami

Previous School: Miami Palmetto

Stats: 6’0”, 170 lbs.

Commitment date: November 21, 2018

Position: Safety

Ratings: Three stars all around. 247Sports considers him one of the top 400 players in the class.

Other Offers: Obviously Miami, but also Alabama, Auburn, Georgia and numerous other schools that typically put a pretty great football product... plus NC State.

Dino’s projected nickname: “Children of the Corn-elius”


Player breakdown:

Nunn should probably remind you a bit of two great defenders from the 2018 class — Andre Cisco and Trill Williams. In space, he makes quick moves and wraps up well. Though he’s not a big player any means, Nunn still has all of the speed and ability to make plays. And some time in a college weight room should help him boost his strength a bit for the caliber of play he’ll face in the ACC. He’s obviously a defender, though you also have to be impressed by how well he avoids would-be tacklers as a ball-carrier too.
