"You don't see too many cornerbacks that are tall and have speed like I do," said Norton, who totaled 37 tackles, 7 pass break ups and an interception as a senior.
Norton, who plays at the same high school as current U of L Cardinals Brent Moody, Willie Johnson and Todd Brigman, has over twelve scholarship offers, but has recently narrowed his list of options and scheduled a couple official visits.
The Cardinals and Nittany Lions aren't the only programs comprising his list of favorites.
Louisville, which made two visits with Norton previously in the recruiting process, will make a presence in his home this week. "Coach Paul Petrino is going to come by this week," continued Norton.
While Norton stated that "it was pretty much even" between all of his favorites, he did say his relationship with his position coach at U of L helps the Cardinals efforts.
"I am more comfortable with the defensive backs coach at Louisville, Coach Joe Whitt Jr.," explained Norton.
While all of the schools in his top five have mentioned possible playing time as a true freshman, Norton realizes that it would be a situation that he couldn't just walk into.
"They all talk about it, but I want to see how good I adjust when I get there," Norton said of playing as a true freshman. "I know that I have the physical attributes and speed to play, but it's a mental thing too."
The distance from home wouldn't have a negative impact in Norton's decision either. "I'm leaning to going out of state," Norton said. "I think I'd just like to get away from home and go somewhere new."
