Stanley Norman watched the UCLA-Nevada game this past weekend. He also kept a close eye on the sidelines to see how assistant coaches Demetrice Martin and Eric Yarber handled their players.
UCLA is coming after the 2015 athlete from Culver City, Calif., the hardest early in his recruitment so Norman, who was in the stands, said he wanted to see what it would be like to play for those coaches.
The offensive MVP at the Rivals.com Underclassmen Challenge in Dallas this summer was definitely impressed.
"I was watching the sidelines mainly to see how coach (Demetrice Martin) was with the DBs and how coach Yarber was with the receivers and talking to them after every possession," Norman said.
"After the game we went in the locker room and we were hanging out with the players and we were just talking to the coaches and chilling and hanging out.
"They were excited to see me. We were doing what we always do, having a conversation and just hanging out, asking them how the season would be and they asked how I did in our scrimmages. They were just checking up on me."
So far, Norman has received offers from Akron, Marshall, San Jose State, UCLA, USC, Utah and Washington State and many others including Michigan and Cincinnati are showing interest.
The Bruins are recruiting him the most at this point.
"Right now UCLA is recruiting me the hardest," Norman said. "After the USC offer it's been the same lately. UCLA has been the most consistent. Even though we've been in a break I've been talking to them a lot and they're recruiting me the hardest."
No other unofficial visits are scheduled at this point but Norman said he's trying to take a trip to Cal at some point this season.
