UNLV guard Jordan Cornish and Cuonzo Martin are reuniting for a second time! Cornish has announced he's transferring to Cal.

Cornish considered Cal among a bunch of schools, but what really makes his name pop out is that he is a Cuonzo Martin commit back from his time at Tennessee. Cornish reopened his recruitment after Martin moved on over to Cal, and he eventually decided to commit to UNLV.

A 6-6, 215 pound guard, Cornish played about 21.6 minutes a game his sophomore year, shooting 35.4% from the field and 30.1% from three. Cornish averaged 6.2 points per game, 2.5 rebounds and 1.8 assists. He has two years of eligibility left and will likely have to sit out the 2016-17 season. It will provide Cal with some much needed experience shooting guard depth when the Bears lose Jabari Bird and Jordan Mathews next season.

Here are the highlights of Cornish from his UNLV days.
