Will 4-Star LB entertain Louisville's offer?

Four-star outside linebacker Chris Norman from Detroit's Renaissance HS loves Michigan State. That's why the talent junior has already committed to the Spartans. Still, Scout.com's No. 5 linebacker prospect is getting lots of attention – and offers - from several big-time schools, including Louisville. Will Norman seriously entertain other options?

Four-star outside linebacker Chris Norman from Detroit's Renaissance HS loves Michigan State. That's why the talent junior has already committed to the Spartans. Still, Scout.com's No. 5 linebacker prospect is getting lots of attention – and offers - from several big-time schools, including Louisville. Will Norman seriously entertain other options?

Perhaps, but it's not likely.

"Chris is firmly committed to Michigan State, he loves them and they were his favorite school as a kid," Renaissance coach Antoine Edwards said. "But he'll take three or four visits just to make sure he made the right decision. I know Louisville is one of those schools that he is definitely interested in. He's extremely high on Michigan State but you never know what could happen. A coaching staff could get fired or leave so you've got to have other options too. I know Louisville's coaching staff is very high on Chris"

While Norman wants to keep his option open, he remains firm with his commitment to the Spartans.

"I haven't really come up with a list of schools that I want to specifically visit but as far as Louisville's offer, just like all the other offers, I'm honored to get it," Norman said. "As far as my commitment to Michigan State that's already set but I am honored to receive other offers."

"He's already narrowed down his list to other schools that he would consider and Louisville is on that list. Anything is possible but I would say it is very unlikely that he would de-commit from Michigan State," Edwards said.

Besides Norman and Dana Dixon, Louisville is also eyeing a third prospect from Renaissance High, Delano Collins.

"Louisville wants to see him this summer," Edwards said. "He's a cornerback and wide receiver and he's also a D-1 basketball prospect. He's getting major looks in basketball from West Virginia, Michigan State and Dayton."
