Norman Shines at Army Combine, Talks Michigan

STORY: 2015 CB Stanley Norman discusses his combine performance, his interest in Michigan and more.

SAN ANTONIO – Culver City (Calif.) Senior High 2015 cornerback Stanley Norman made his presence felt last week at the U.S. Army Junior Combine in the Alamo Dome.

The No. 6 CB, according to the latest Scout.com player rankings, displayed why he is quickly becoming one most sought after prospects in the nation.

"I think I did pretty good," Norman said. "I mean, there is always room for improvement. I have been just been relaxing lately. I feel like I am just coming out here to have fun against the competition. I feel it was a good experience for me. I feel like I did pretty good."

At 5-foot-10, 170-pounds, Norman has notable offers from USC, UCLA, Arizona State, Washington State, Washington and Utah to name a few. But last June, he made his way to Michigan for the annual Sound Mind, Sound Body football academy, and after a stellar camp performance, he went on unofficial visit to Michigan.

"I have kept talking to Michigan after that," Norman said. "The unofficial was amazing. It's the Big House. Just being at Michigan was a great experience for me. Michigan is consideration where I go to college. I feel like after that, we talked and build a bond toward each other. Now, I am just waiting to see if I get an offer from Michigan.

"I am supposed to go to the Sound Mind, Sound Body again this year. So if I go out there, I am for sure going for an unofficial again."

With most his offers form the west coast, Norman says distance won't be factor behind his final decision.

"My family is from Louisiana. So traveling wouldn't be a problem for college," Norman said. "I am open to experiencing the college experience. Me traveling for college is not a big deal."

But one major factor in his decision process, Norman says, will be if he can play on both sides of the ball at the next level.

"When every college ask me what it would take for me to go there? I say I have to play both ways," Norman said. "I feel like I can make impact wherever I go playing both ways on either side of the ball. I'm not asking to play a full game on both sides of the ball, cause I know I am going to play cornerback. But at the same time, I know if I get 10 or 15 on offense – that's all I need to make a difference on the field."
