Norman wants to play both sides

Stanley Norman is not hearing from many new schools but after a strong performance at the Rivals250 Underclassmen Challenge, the 2015 athlete could see an uptick soon.
"Lately recruiting has been slowing down a little bit," Norman said. "I haven't really heard from anybody.
"The last time I talked with some coaches they said they were going on vacation so that's probably what it is."
So far, the Culver City, Calif., prospect who plays wide receiver and defensive back has been offered by Akron, Marshall, San Jose State, UCLA, USC, Utah and Washington State.
Since things are still so early in his recruitment, Norman said he wants to keep his options open and not make any early decisions.
There are still some schools like Oregon and Michigan that Norman wants to hear from, so the Culver City standout is just taking his time with the process.
"I'm going to stay open," Norman said. "Probably toward the end of the season I might make a commitment or I could stay open because I'm not sure which offers I could end up with. I'm just taking my time.
"I've heard from a lot of the schools I wanted to hear from and now I'm just waiting for some of the big schools like Michigan and Oregon to start taking notice of my talent. That's what I'm waiting for."
One of the most important things in Norman's recruitment is that he wants to play both ways, at least be given the opportunity to prove he can be special at receiver and defensive back.
Norman does not lack confidence and so contributing on both sides could be crucial to landing the 2015 standout.
"I always loved playing both ways," Norman said.
"I'm dominant on both sides of the ball. I'm just as good on offense as I am on defense so I feel like I want to be on the field at all times. If Deion (Sanders) can do it I'm capable of doing it. I work hard enough to be on that caliber in college."
