'Irish have everything'

Four-star athlete Stanley 'Scrappy' Norman of Gardena (Calif.) Junipero Serra wants to be play both ways in college, and he talks about his interest in Notre Dame.

One of the top ranked cornerbacks coming out of the west in 2015 is four-star Stanley 'Scrappy' Norman of Gardena (Calif.) Junipero Serra.

Norman picked up an Irish offer this spring. Notre Dame, like most schools, offered the 5-foot-11, 180-pound prospect as an athlete.

"To be honest, I would like to play both ways in college," Norman said. "I think I would be an NFL corner, but I still want experience at wide receiver."

Norman has maintained throughout his recruitment that he has no leaders.

"Not at all," Norman said. "I'm not in a rush. I'll probably take two unofficial visits this summer, but I'm not sure where yet. I could decide during this season, but most likely I will wait until Signing Day."

Norman visited Arizona, Arizona State, UCLA and USC this spring. Notre Dame could receive a visit, but that would have to come during the fall.

"I will take visits closer to home this summer," Norman said. "I like Notre Dame a lot, though. I like the competitiveness of it. I just like Notre Dame in general. The Irish have everything, you know?"

Norman primarily keeps in touch with quarterbacks coach Matt LaFleur at Notre Dame.

"I am looking for stability with the coaches," Norman said. "I want coaches that can help me grow into an impact player."

The nickname "Scrappy" was given to Stanley at a young age, and it's something that has stuck with him throughout his young football career.

"I was called that growing up, and with how I play football, it just all came together," Norman said.

Norman is a four-star prospect and is ranked as the No. 16 cornerback in the class of 2015.
