Stanley Norman had a great visit to USC last weekend, but UCLA still seems to have the edge in his recruitment.
The four-star athlete, who recently transferred to Gardena (Calif.) Serra from Culver City, Calif., said he has a great relationship with the UCLA coaches and the Bruins look best at this point.
"UCLA is up there," Norman said. "They're way up there. I don't know if they're No. 1, I don't want to say that, but I talk to them the most. I talk to them on a daily basis. Coach (Jim) Mora and I are like best friends. We talk all the time.
"They were my third offer and they never stopped. Every time I see them it's like they just offered me again. The relationship never changes. We have a good bond."
USC has definitely made up lots of ground with Norman, rated as the eighth-best athlete and the No. 84 prospect in the 2015 class by
The four-star admitted he did not like USC at all when the old regime was in place, but now with coach Steve Sarkisian and his staff taking over, the Trojans are back in the mix.
"The SC visit was really cool," Norman said. "It changed my mind. I used to hate SC. I was messing with UW when Sarkisian was there and once he came down it pretty much replaced UW. USC is pretty much in the picture right now. USC is in the picture again.
"It wasn't even about the visit. I know USC. I know it like the back of my hand. It's in my backyard. Pretty much it was the relationships I have with coach (Keith) Heyward and coach Sarkisian. Everybody knew who I was. Everybody was showing me love. They took care of me and it was cool."
Oklahoma is also a major player for Norman. The Serra recruit said it's the only school where he would be happy to only play receiver and not want to be recruited to play on both sides of the ball. The four-star said Michigan and Arizona State stand out early for him.
"I talk to Oklahoma a lot now," Norman said. "Coach (Jay) Norvell wants me bad at receiver. He's the offensive coordinator and he likes me.
"For someone like that from OU to like me that's big. I always tell you wherever I go to college I want to go both ways, but Oklahoma would be the only school where I'd play receiver only and be comfortable doing it because of coach Norvell. Besides Oklahoma I wouldn't stop going both ways for any other school."
