Little touches impress DE Madison Norris on Vols visit

Fishers (Ind.) Hamilton Southeastern defensive end Madison Norris has a Tennessee offer and just took his first visit to Knoxville where he was impressed with their attention to details.

Madison Norris knew Tennessee was ready for him to come on the visit based on the number of personalized touches he experienced when he got to Knoxville. 

"I had two things that stood out," he said. "First was having a locker with my number set up for me when I walked in their locker room. Second was when I walked on the field by myself and they put on a video just for me on the Jumbotron."

Then Norris, a highly-recruited edge rusher, had an opportunity to sit own the coaching staff, namely associate head coach and defensive line coach Brady Hoke and graduate assistant Nathan Ollie.

"I talked to coach Hoke and coach Ollie most of the time and we talked about what I'd be used for if I committed. They told me I'd be used as a defensive end and rush end so I can get to the quarterback, blitz and do other things and that I had a speed and twitch that is very unique and un-teachable."

Norris has additional offers including PittsburghPurdueIndianaLouisvilleMinnesotaNC State and more.

At this point, he does not have a list of top schools, but Tennessee is in contention.

"I don't know where they sit now," he said, "but I'm planning to narrow it down when football begins. But they do show a lot of interest."
