Daytona Beach (Fla.) Seabreeze quarterback Trenton Norvell had been committed to the Marshall Thundering Herd since April, but after giving it a lot of thought he will be playing his college football elsewhere.
"I decommitted from Marshall and committed to Cincinnati," Norvell said. "I had thought about it a lot and I just felt like it was the right thing to do."
The 6-foot-4, 215-pound pro-style signal-caller said that selecting Cincinnati was an easy decision.

"It is a great school," Norvell said. "It is a great academic place. They have great facilities. I feel like it is a family up there with all of the players and the coaches. I just feel like it is the best place for me."
As for telling the Marshall coaching staff that he was parting ways, that was difficult for Norvell to do.
"It was pretty tough," Norvell said. "I liked them and appreciated the way they recruited me. I just had to make the best decision for myself."
Now, Norvell says his recruitment has concluded and he is focused on arriving at his new home in less than a month.
"I am done," Norvell said. "I will be heading up to Cincinnati around December 30th because I think classes start on January 3rd."
On his senior season, Norvell threw for 1,432 yards, 12 touchdowns, and six interceptions.
