Lions Grab Another Norwood

After a strong performance at the school's camp, Levi Norwood lands an offer and commits to PSU. He will carry on a strong family tradition with the Nittany Lions.

Levi Norwood's college football recruitment ended before it ever really started.

After spending last weekend at Penn State's senior-only camp and receiving an offer, Norwood called Lion receivers' coach Mike McQueary Wednesday to inform him that he was committing.

Norwood, the younger brother of former PSU standout receiver Jordan Norwood and the son of former Lion assistant Brian Norwood, said there was really never any question about where he would play his college ball.

“Pretty much growing up there and having my brother go there and always being around Penn State, I always wanted to go there,” Levi said. “It was easy for me.”

Norwood is back in Waco, Texas, now, where his father is the defensive coordinator for Baylor.

Norwood did not play football at Midway High last fall after transferring from State College High. But he has been working out with the football team at Midway this off-season and reportedly turned in a strong performance at PSU's senior camp.

He said McQueary expected the call.

“He was excited,” Norwood said. “I don't think he was very surprised, because I think he could tell for a while I wanted to go to Penn State.”

Norwood said no decision has been made on whether he will grayshirt.

He is the 11th member of PSU's Class of 2010.
