Union High School wide receiver Khalid Kornegay has announced his commitment to the University of Tulsa football program.
Used primarily on defense last season, the 6-foot-3, 185-pound Kornegay "has really worked on his hands and has become a heck of a receiver," Union coach Kirk Fridrich said.
"He's a great athlete," Fridrich added. "We used him some in pass-rush situations and we played him as a nickel corner. We even used him some on kickoff coverage."
This spring, Kornegay was a 100-meter sprinter and competed in the long jump and high jump for the Union track team.
Within a span of four days, TU got commitments from three recruits: Kornegay today, McAlester High School linebacker Devin Rolan on Wednesday and Mountain Vista (Colo.) High School quarterback Ryan Rubley on Tuesday.
Kornegay joins Union teammate Chris Hall on the Golden Hurricane's 2013 commitment list. Hall is a fullback and wide receiver for the four-time defending Class 6A champion Redskins.
Verbal commitments are not binding. Recruits may sign national letters of intent in February.
Previously committing to the Golden Hurricane were C.J. Gooden, a linebacker from Ashdown, Ark.; Rob Boyd, an offensive lineman from Vian; and Ben Oberste, a Sallisaw High School quarterback who may be played at a different position in college.
