Norman certain of Big 12 visit

Stanley Norman is more focused on a big senior season at Gardena (Calif.) Serra but his recruitment continues to go on with some new programs emerging as possible frontrunners.
The four-star athlete who looked good at the Rivals100 Five-Star Challenge presented by Under Armour in Baltimore said he continues to talk with Oklahoma a lot and then Cal and Arizona have popped up as serious contenders in his recruitment.
"There's nothing much really new," Norman said. "I've been talking to Oklahoma and Arizona and Cal and everybody here and there. I've been talking to Oklahoma a lot.
"(Arizona and Cal) are making a move up. I could get in there early and compete. I feel like I fit in those programs. I like the way we talk and we have an understanding about everything."
Norman, who transferred to Serra from Culver City, had contemplated an unofficial visit to Oklahoma this summer but that will probably have to wait a few months.
Rated as the sixth-best athlete in the 2015 class by Rivals.com, Norman said he will absolutely take an official visit to see the Sooners at some point.
Oklahoma has mainly recruited Norman as a wide receiver and while the four-star would prefer schools to use him both ways - at receiver and cornerback - he said the Sooners are the one team he wouldn't mind just playing offense.
He expects to get to Norman this fall.
"We just talk a lot," Norman said. "It's nothing like really major. We just keep having conversations. I don't know yet about a visit. I don't know anybody that's going out there so I'll probably just have to wait for an official. I'm for sure going to go out there."
The Serra recruit said it's unlikely he will camp at USC or UCLA this week. He wants to focus on his new team and having a big season.
"I'm just going to football practice and that's it," Norman said.
