Daytona Beach (Fla.) Seabreeze quarterback Trenton Norvell, a Marshall commitment, recently took an official visit to Cincinnati. The 6-foot-4, 215-pound pro-style signal-caller talked about what stood out to him during his team on the Big East program's campus.
"The facilities are very impressive," Norvell said. "I just liked the campus and everything around it. That was pretty impressive as well. I like the coaches up there and I liked the players as well. I was really impressed. I had a really good time."
During the visit, Norvell spoke with receivers coach T.J. Weist, his primary recruiter, as well as quarterbacks coach Mike Bajakian and head coach Butch Jones. He said the message from the entire staff was the same.

"They told me that I am the guy they are looking for," Norvell said. "They said they really want me up there. They want me to become a Bearcat sometime real soon."
A fellow Florida signal-caller, Plant City (Fla.) dual-threat quarterback Bennie Coney, has already pledged to the Bearcats but they told Norvell that they are looking for two quarterbacks in this class. Norvell talked about where he stands after the visit with regards to his commitment to Marshall.
"It is definitely something I have to think about," Norvell said. "I am still committed to Marshall but it is like I said, the visit just gave me some stuff to think about."
When it comes time to make his final decision, Norvell said his criteria for choosing a school is simple.
"I just want to feel I am going to have a chance to play and that a place is the right fit for me," Norvell said.
A visit to Temple remains a possibility for Norvell, but nothing has been scheduled at this point. He has already taken an official visit to Marshall. He said he is currently considering no other schools outside of Cincinnati, Marshall, and Temple.
