Douglas prepared to make impact during first full season on defense
As Cornelius Douglas approached a throng of media members following a recent Texas Tech football practice, coach Tommy Tuberville couldn’t help busting the chops of one of his senior leaders.
“This is Cornelius Douglas, and he’s going to play receiver for us this year,” Tuberville mused.
Douglas’ heart didn’t appear to jump up in his throat at his coach’s mock announcement, but he could hardly be blamed if it did. After all, the 5-foot-9, 198-pound Lawton, Okla., native is finally getting the hang of being a full-time cornerback.
And there’s no going back now.
