Cornish is a 6’4″/180 lb shooting guard from New Orleans, LA.
Rivals rates Cornish as a three-star guard and the 131st best player in the nation.
Cornish was believed to have been considering rival SEC schools Alabama and LSU, among others.
The basketball program at Tennessee has been picking up some momentum since a disappointing ending to the 2012-13 season. The Vols finished the season with a loss in the NIT, after making a strong NCAA tournament push during the month of February.
Last month the Vols received the news that both Jordan McRae and Jarnell Stokes would be returning for the 2013-14 season. Their return, combined with the return of Jeronne Maymon from injury, has placed the Vols squarely in the pre-season top 25 conversation.
