Pelle Likes Pac-10 School

Norvel Pelle, an elite 2011 power forward prospect from Southern California, has most of the Pac-10 recruiting him...

Norvel Pelle, 6-8 JR PF Compton (Calif.) Dominguez, is the number one prospect at his position in the West Coast class of 2011. A terrific shot-blocker, Pelle is extremely agile and quick for his size. He has a nice touch facing up to 15-17 feet and he will eventually be an inside/outside threat.

I spoke with Pelle recently and asked him about the schools that have been recruiting him since the July evaluation period.

"Washington, UCLA, Arizona…basically the whole Pac-10," said Pelle.

Pelle said all of the schools recruiting him have offered a scholarship.

When asked if he has a leader, Pelle replied, "Washington. I like the style of play and I like them."

Pelle recently attended the UW Elite Camp and I asked him how that went.

"It went excellent," said Pelle. "It's beautiful up there and the players and coaches are cool."

Pelle said he doesn't see himself making a decision any time soon.

"I'll probably decide during my senior year," said Pelle.
