SO is this the 7 am surprise?
SO is this the 7 am surprise?
If he the surprise guy? Even if he's not it's still a great pick-up, size doesn't always matter
late pickup. You can never have enough speed. Borges will find a nice role for him. Welcome aboard Dennis.
Great late pickup especially with Vincent Smith in his last year of eligibility.
I'm confused. It's 1 a.m. How is the news breaking now?
I thought someone said 7am guy and surprise guy are two different guys. Are they? If so, which one is this?
I checked mgoblog and was like ho hum....nothing yet.....then I check scout and go yes!! Then I go back to mgoblog....three posts about Norfleet committing. Love it haha
i'll take another 4 star any day. welcome aboard, mr. norfleet. i look forward to cheering for him.
ESPN sucks at recruiting projections, right? a consensus of the non-idiots 4 star is nothing to shrug at.
"Why not U-M? I didn't even get a look from Michigan."
Anyway welcome aboard.
He's a sick player. Real glad to have him. Welcome, Dennis.
So are we down to zero signing day surprises now?
They commit every time. If there truly is a surprise, it is only known by the coaches and said player. Remember Heitzman? No prior idea.
I'm absolutely thrilled... The kid is a stud, honestly.... Watch his senior film..
Looking forward to seeing him in the Big House.
Damn. 0 to 60 in half a second. He's got some insane acceleration. This is a guy you find a use for. Did he play in the UA game though? That's what it says at the beginning of the video but I don't remember anyone talking about it when the game happened.
That mad scientist Borges will definitely find a use for him
If you can't find a use for a slippery lightning bolt like this, you shouldn't have a job in football.
Impressive as hell.
That special teams play when he waits on the ball is absurd. He cuts past 5 guys. Reminds me of Devin Hester on special teams.
I will listening to Hall and Oates "You Make My Dreams Come True" when I clicked on his tape. Thought it was a bit ironic, so I just muted the senior highlights.
small and quick, nice speed, nice vision, uses his blockers well, good balance and body control in traffic, sometimes carries the ball in the wrong hand, wonder how many fumbles he's had being a smaller guy, didn't particularly like how he started jogging on a few of those long runs, but that's correctable. looks like a third down back, if he can catch and passblock. Fills a need with us whiffing on Dunn and losing Vincent Smith in another year.
Wow. Not just speed, but very nice vision and quick cuts in traffic.
Only downside is that when he gets going, the maize stripes on the blue helmet might blur to a greenish haze. But I'll overlook it.
with nati, not sure they are to happy about it though.
Yes I think so ...
I believe one of the Rogers brothers was pretty good at Oregon State? he was only 5'6 or 5'7
JaQuizz or whatever. He's on the Falcons now I believe
Based on that return in the state championship game, he would become our best returner the second he hits campus. Great addition, staff!
Hows his academics and attitude? I'm just curious.
Enjoyed watching his YouTube videos.
His video says he had a 3.4 GPA. 4.39 40. All State Sprinter.
for many people that have asked, this is it! Allen Trieu has said so!
So that leaves three signing days surprises or four?
So we were hush hush just to square up with cincy after losing stacey? I see you hoke.. Only one school in ohio fucks with our recruits!
Silence butter tool.. Im making a point about how awesome he is
It's five.... Seven O'clock somewhere
>>>> Whatever i'm still getting drunk
I think this is a very exciting pick up! One thing I found interesting (ironic, maybe?) is that this switch comes a day after the Detroit News blue chip article came out and Norfleet's reason for "why not U-M" and his answer was "I didn't even get a look from Michigan." I thought that was an interesting answer when I read it Tuesday morning, but now it's a really interesting answer. Just thought that was interesting, given the timing...
Yes, it was interesting... Very interesting.
Fred Jackson says he is Mike Hart, but faster and tougher.
fred jackson says he is like shaq. only taller.
This kid reminds me of Barry Sanders, only faster and with better hips.
Honestly think this kid is a legitimate running back... He looks decently built already and he's electric with the ball... Idk how the hell some of you aren't excited about this
People are worried about his size and offer list, but he seems impressive to me. Plus, I love any kid that is willing to switch his commitment last minute because of an offer by Michigan.
Knowing how much these recruiting sites rely on offers when rating recruits, the fact that he is a consensus 4 star should really tell you how talented the guy is. So pumped.
Why did he have so few offers though? Lack of exposure like Braden?
I would guess that it's beause he committed to Cincinnati in August. At the time, Alabama was pursuing him pretty hard, so he might have gotten a scholarship from the Tide. I'm sure that would have opened up a whole new sheet of offers. I'm not one of those schools evaluating him, but the only knock on him seems to be size. This is a good football player we're getting. His offers probably would have blown up had we offered him sooner.
i don't know about decently built, he's looks pretty college ready to me.
It'd be amazing if he looks that superimposed in real life.
