Mike's Take: Cincinnati QB commit

Mike's Take: Cincinnati QB commit

Cincinnati recently picked up a talented quarterback from the state of Florida so lets take a closer look at him as a prospect.

What to Like: Trenton Norvell is a talented quarterback prospect from Seabreeze High. At 6-foot-4 and 215 pounds, he has the prototypical size you look for in a major college quarterback prospect. He's a well-built quarterback who has a live arm that enables him to make most of the throws on the football field. He's not just a pure pocket passer, either, as he can move around and make things happen with his feet. He completes a lot of throws outside the pocket and on the run, and also makes things happen in the running game. He's had a few hundred yards rushing in each of the last two seasons. Finally, he has a good football IQ and comes from a well-coached program for quarterbacks under coach Marc Beach.

What may concern you: Norvell isn't always the most accurate passer. He has a tendency to miss high and not always be on point. His completion percentage at the prep level has been under 50-percent over the last two seasons and that's a concern going to the college level. He also threw about as many interceptions as touchdowns so the production numbers haven't really matched his skillset.

Bottom Line: A one-time commitment to Marshall, Norvell became the second Florida quarterback to pledge to the Bearcats, joining Bennie Coney (Plant City) in the class. Recruited like a low three-star prospect, Norvell also had offers from schools like Marshall and Temple.
