Norton plans to visit Notre Dame
Considered one of top uncommitted linemen in the 2015 class, Jacksonville (Fla.) Trinity Christian Academy's Kendrick Norton is primarily eyeing four schools with signing day being less than two months away. "I'm going to take visits probably to Miami, Florida, Notre Dame and Ole Miss," Norton said. "I don't have any favorites out of those, though." The 6-foot-3, 315-pound two-way lineman said he received a visit from defensive coordinator Brian VanGorder on Wednesday. "I got to talk to the defensive coordinator some today," Norton said. "They like me a lot as a defensive lineman. And, I have an offer, but there's just not a spot for me right now. That could still change." Norton first visited Notre Dame this past summer with some of his teammates and coaches. "Notre Dame has great history and good academics," Norton said. "It's a great place to play football, too." Norton is a three-star prospect and is ranked as the No. 31 offensive guard prospect in the class of 2015. The Irish are also pursuing Trinity Christian Academy three-star defensive back Ben Edwards in the 2015 class. Trinity will head to on Saturday to participate in the 3A state championship vs. Delray Beach (Fla.) American Heritage. Click here to view Norton's Spotlight video and interview.
