Seabreeze's Trenton Norvell, a 6-foot-5, 220 pound quarterback who committed to Marshall back in July recently took an official visit to USF this past weekend. The pro-style quarterback came to Tampa to get a closer look at what the Bulls had to offer and was impressed with what he saw.

"The visit went very well, I like it a lot," said Norvell. "I've already seen most of it on my unofficial visit, but everything was very nice and I had a real good time."

The Seabreeze quarterback came in with his parents, came away impressed with what the Bulls have to offer.

"I was definitely impressed with what they have," said Norvell. "I really like the campus, the area, and the facilities are just great."

After already seeing USF over the summer, Norvell got a chance to hang out with the players and see what game day was like at Raymond James Stadium.

"I enjoyed getting to hang out with the players and see what game day was like," said Norvell. "They play in a great NFL stadium, but it still had that college feel, the atmosphere was great."

During the visit, Norvell got to speak with quarterback coach Peter Vass, Head Coach Skip Holtz as well as other members of the staff. 
"It was real good to see them all again. I talked a lot with coach Vass and coach Holtz and it went real well," said Norvell. "They told me what they want in a quarterback and how they're looking for a fourth guy on the roster, and all about their whole situation."

The Bulls already have a quarterback that committed to them in Tyler Cameron, and informed Norvell about the Jupiter quarterback has been taking visits and opened things back up.

"They told me all about how Tyler has been taking visits and that he's not returning their calls and stuff like that," said Norvell. "That's why they opened things back up with me."

Norvell was hosted by USF freshman OL Boo Simon and also got to spend time with several Bulls and said that was very beneficial.

"Boo is definitely a good guy and he and my dad really got a long well," said Norvell. "I got to talk with B.J. (Daniels) for a little bit and Matt Floyd and Bobby Eveld for long awhile as well as a few other players. We talked for about an hour and 30 minutes and they were very high on the coaching staff, talked about the recruiting process, and that was very helpful for when it comes down to making a decision."

"I definitely felt a family atmosphere surrounding the team, and I definitely liked that coming from a tight high school team," said Norvell. "They still seem very tight even though they're having a down year. But they're still a young team, and I'm looking forward to them doing some great things in the future."
Norvell talked about where he stands after the visit and how it affected how he felt about USF.

"It definitely changed my mind a little bit," said Norvell. "Especially with them opening the door back up with the Tyler situation. I was able to go in there and get a better feel with the coaching staff, and where they're at."
"I am still committed to Marshall Obviously," said Norvell. "But the visit went very well and it gives me a lot to think about."

After committing to Marshall back over the summer, Norvell has taken a recent visit to Cincinnati in October, and said even though he's still committed there are several schools in the mix.

"Besides Marshall, I'm also considering USF and Cincinnati," said Norvell. "Those are the only schools I'm looking at."

Norvell will be a December graduate and enroll at college in January, so a final decision will be coming quickly.

"I would say it'll be sometime soon, the latest would be mid-December," said Norvell. ‘I'm just looking for the right fit and a chance to play."
