"I was actually named out Team's Defensive MVP last year," added Kevin Norwood, who is not related to the Falcons Jerious Norwood. "We finished first in total defense in Class 4A, so we did pretty good."

Any unofficial visits on the horizon?
"Me and Jacoby Bell are suppose to go up to Ole Miss some time soon. We might just go for their camp if we do not go on our own before then. Our transportation is not that good."
What does Kevin know about Ole Miss?
"Not much, to be honest. I have a good relationship with Coach Dickerson. He came down here last week for a practice of ours. We just bumped into each other. He couldn't talk to me at school, but he called me that night. He wants to get us up there as soon as we can get up there."
Which colleges are now at the top of Norwood's list?
"Alabama and USM."
What stands out about Alabama?

"They are just down the road. It would be easy for all of my folks to see me play if I went to USM. Coach Watts came by last Monday. We have a pretty good relationship. He said they are suppose to really open it up on offense this year. "
MSU has also been in the picture.
"Me and Coach Washington also have a good relationship. He came by Wednesday, and we had a conversation about how much they need me."
