Cornelius is out of Weatherford High School in Texas.  He is committed to Texas Christian University.

During his senior season he hit .492 with 7 HR, 46 RBIs, 60 runs, and 13 stolen bases in 13 attempts. He was ranked the 50th best prep prospect in Texas by MaxPreps.  He was also selected as the Player of the Week in February by MaxPreps.

His Perfect Game USA scouting report reads:
Kevin Cornelius is a 2011 SS with a 6-1 170 lb. frame from Weatherford, TX who attends Weatherford HS. Nice athletic build, some developing strength. 7.14 runner, very good hands defensively, quick exchange, stays balanced, throws carry well, solid overall defender. Wide base hitting, smooth easy swing, hands work well to the ball, can get long at times, inconsistent swing path, tends to get out front early, shows raw strength/power potential at times. Good approach to the game, should keep improving. Excellent student.
