Three still at the top for WR Kevin Norwood

Mississippi Scout
Posted Aug 14, 2008

Standout WR Kevin Norwood attended two camps at Alabama and Ole Miss this summer. It's no surprise that both of those schools are hot after the Mississippi prep star. Despite garnering those two SEC offers, Southern Miss is neck and neck with both Alabama and Ole Miss in the race to sign Norwood.

Did attending camps at Ole Miss and Alabama give Norwood a better feel for those schools?

"Yes, I enjoyed both camps. I was able to spend some time with Alabama coaches and I had a good time at the camp," added Kevin Norwood. "I wish I could have stayed at Ole Miss longer. I enjoyed the camp and thought they had great facilities. The Ole Miss drive that me and Jacoby Bell seemed like it took along time, but it wasn't that bad."

Any new scholarship offers?

"I've haven't gotten any new offers. I've been offered by Alabama, Ole Miss, USM and Mississippi State."

Are any other schools close to offering's #87 WR?

"I would say that Auburn and Louisiana Lafayette are both close to offering. I really think Auburn is close. They send me a lot of mail."

What team is recruiting Norwood the hardest?

"Alabama is recruiting me the hardest. They send me something everyday, and I like their coaches a lot."

Has Norwood talked with his teammate and best friend, TE/LB Jacoby Bell, about playing together on the next level?

"We've talked about it. I think we'd both like to do that but we have to do what's best for us. But we would both love to play together at the next level."

Does Norwood have a leader?

"No, but I have a top three. Alabama, Ole Miss and USM are my top three."

When does the south Mississippi star plan on making a decision?

"I'll probably wait until the end of my season or after my season is over before making a decision."

This looks to be a classic recruiting battle that will go down to the end. One thing is for sure, Norwood is worth fighting for.

Kevin had 33 catches for 688 yards and 11 TD's. On defense, he had 11 int's while manning the safety position. Norwood was named D' Iberville's Defensive MVP, Best WR, and made the All-Coast team by the Sun Herald.
