Stanley Norman said he had an excellent time at USC on Saturday and now the Trojans have re-emerged as a serious consideration in his recruitment.
"I'm not going to say SC is not in the picture anymore because they are now," Norman said.
"If UW was considered to be in my top then you can switch them with USC. "

The Gardena (Calif.) Serra four-star athlete who recently transferred there from Culver City, Calif., said one of the big reasons why his day went so well is because he hit it off with defensive backs coach Keith Heyward.
Norman, a four-star athlete who was the offensive MVP at the Rivals Underclassmen Challenge in Dallas last summer, said he and Heyward along with new coach Steve Sarkisian spent a lot of time together - and it went great.
"I had a really good day," Norman said.
"Just getting there, the whole coaching staff came and talked to me and greeted me and was happy to see me. I was kicking it with coach Heyward most of the time. I saw coach Sark and he was happy to see me. I ate lunch with coach Sark and we were just hanging out.
"We toured around the new facilities, they took me to the Coliseum, they fed me good. We did everything. It was a good day."
USC has bounced back up the list for Norman, rated as the eighth-best athlete and the No. 84 recruit in the 2015 class by Rivals.com. The new coaching staff has definitely impressed the four-star.
"I feel comfortable with these coaches," Norman said.
"I had a relationship with coach Heyward when he was at Washington so pretty much he and I just bonded together. I learned something from coach Heyward, he taught me some new stuff so it was just a good experience."
Norman lists offers from Akron, Arizona State, Cal, Florida State, Marshall, Oklahoma, San Jose State, UCLA, USC, Utah, Washington and Washington State.
