New schools in mix for Norvell

New schools continue to enter the mix for Zach Norvell.

Four-star class of 2016 shooting guard Zach Norvell is having a very consistent season for Chicago (Ill.) Simeon this year. The offensively gifted Norvell is taking better shots and taking better care of the ball than ever as a junior, and more and more colleges are coming into the mix.

The 6-foot-4 Norvell has always had a lot of talent, but has been on the wild side with his play, but as a junior he feels things are going well.

“I have been picking my spots, knocking down shots, and I think I have been opening up things for my teammates,” said Norvell.

That added maturity to his game has been important since Norvell is now being asked to run the team as a point guard this year.

“I always have felt like I could play point guard, and I did so growing up, so it has been like second nature to me this year,” said Norvell.

Recruiting wise new schools have continued to enter the mix for Norvell.

“Recently Arkansas, Oregon, Creighton, St. Louis, and a few others have been talking to me a lot,” noted Norvell.

Even with new interest, visits, and the recruiting process aren’t really the first thing on his mind.

“Right now I’m just focused on the season,” explained Norvell. “We have a lot of big games coming up, so I haven’t planned any visits or about recruiting.”

In fact the thing motivating him the most is another state title. Simeon came up short of that goal last year, and he is determined to help bring the title back home for the Wolverines.

“It is my motivation every day,” said Norvell of winning a state title. “We want to get back down there and win it. I want to have that same feeling I did when I was a freshman and we won it.”
