Stanley Norman has been one of the hottest names recently on the 7on7 circuit and the Culver City, Calif., 2015 athlete landed a big-time offer on Wednesday.
UCLA is the first Pac-12 offer for Norman, who also has San Jose State and Marshall offers, but it probably won't be his last especially if he continues to make a name for himself this off-season in passing leagues.
The Culver City recruit said an offer from the Bruins is big especially because he loves the coaching staff and UCLA has been on him since his sophomore season but he doesn't want to rush a decision at this time.
"UCLA has been on me for a while now," Norman said. "They came through since last season and then the 7on7 circuit and how my track season has been going lately so it's all been coming together. They called me on my way to track practice and told me they offered me a scholarship.
"That's really big. I like UCLA a lot so that's a big thing for me. I love the coaches. I love how they're recruiting me. It's exciting.
"Coach (Eric) Yarber called me and he's the one recruiting my area. I talked to him and he told me I had a scholarship so that's big. They talk to me a lot. They talk about how I can get better and all kinds of things."
Getting an offer from UCLA is important but Norman has not even started his junior season so he's not considering a commitment this early.
One reason is because so many programs from across the country are showing interest, so the Culver City athlete wants to remain patient and see what other offers come in through next season.
The 5-foot-10, 170-pound recruit said Georgia, Cal, Michigan, USC, Florida, Arizona, Arizona State, Washington, Northwestern and Colorado State is a sampling of teams reaching out so far.
"I'm not going to commit," Norman said. "I have so much time. I don't plan on committing to anybody through the rest of my sophomore year or my junior year. I'm just going to let it come."
