6-3, 185-pound Theron Norman , a smooth, athletic safety/wide receiver prospect out of Hermitage High School in Richmond, Virginia, sits at four official Division 1A scholarship offers at this point in his recruiting process. Intent on building upon last year’s success both individually and team-wise, Norman is focused on preparing for his senior season but he has also made some college visits to explore potential suitors.

“As far as anything else goes, I’m really just trying to get ready for my team,” said Norman, who boasts official offers from Maryland, Syracuse, Virginia and Virginia Tech. Duke and Tennessee are among the other programs expressing serious interest. “I’m going to be the quarterback this year. I’m the leader. I need to focus on getting myself and my teammates ready for the season.”

The recruiting process “is going good,” Norman says. “It is getting kind of hectic. I’m just trying to keep my options open right now and focus on my schoolwork. I want to keep working hard. As far as my decision goes, I’m not sure about it right now and I doubt I’ll decide before the season.”

Norman may not make too many visits this summer, although he did mention camp at the University of Tennessee as a possibility. This Saturday, he is considering a trip to College Park, Maryland, for Maryland’s Spring Game. He has visited both in-state contenders, including a trip to Virginia Tech last weekend for its Spring Game.

“It was real good,” Norman said of the visit to Virginia Tech. “I had a chance to see [former teammate Alonzo] Tweedy. I stayed with him and that was real good. The Spring Game was real good. The fans in Blacksburg are real passionate about the team. That is real big to me. The coaches and the players are real cool. They told me about how they do things and how things go. It is like a family there…that is the environment there.

“I’ve been to UVa a couple of times this year. It was kind of like Virginia Tech. The players stick together and it was cool how they work together. No person is really bigger than the team. That really sticks out. The coaches are real friendly and real cool.

“Both places were real good.”
