"My team is doing fine after a tough pre-season. As of right now we're doing well, we're 4-3. I'm doing well personally. I'm doing very well on offense, and holding up on defense despite being double teamed. I can't complain," said Malele recently.
He faces double teams on every down, but he tries not to let it frustrate him. "It's expected, so I just go after it. Every week coaches like to scheme out what to do with me, so we can create havoc."
He is flexible on which side of the ball he'll play on in college. "Depending on where I go, that will really determine where I play. It doesn't matter to me. I'm not really sure at this point," said Malele.
With a 4.96 in the 40, either offensive guard or defensive nose tackle are likely.
He is mostly hearing from the Pac-10 and the Big 12, and some WAC schools. Offers from UW, Cal, OSU, Arizona, Utah, Fresno State, and San Diego have all come in, but he has yet to go on any official visits. "I'll take those after the season. In December I'll visit Cal (Dec 5th) and Arizona (Dec 12th). I plan on taking a visit to Washington, hopefully in November."
Norris' brother Matthew (at Cal) has been helpful. "He tells me to just not let it get to me. It's not been that bad, coaches have been really respectful and down to earth. I get a long with all of them, I don't' mind talking to them at all. I enjoy hearing from them," said Norris.
"I have no leader yet."
When asked about the Huskies, Norris replied, "Washington is a great school, overall. Matt enjoyed his trip and had a lot of fun up there, but unfortunately for them, Cal edged them out. Matt told me that the coaches really were down to earth up there. They are intense, I really like them. The weather you have to get used to, but I have family up there. I think the UW will be right there, I like them a lot."
