Marshall coach Doc Holliday continues his successful recruiting prowess in the south Florida area with the recent commitment of Seabreeze High School quarterback Trenton Norvell.
Norvell gave his verbal commitment to the Herd back in April and his high school coach, Marc Beach, says his quarterback is ready to compete at the next level.
“He works hard and he has a strong arm. He’s 6-foot-5 and 217 pounds so he has great size,” said Beach. “Trenton felt comfortable with Doc [Holliday] and he felt like Marshall was a place where he could get in there and compete.”
And compete, he will. With Norvell’s verbal, Marshall is loaded at the quarterback position. There are sophomores A.J. Graham and Eddie Sullivan, who are currently competing for the starting job this fall, as well as recent commit Adam Wing out of Morehead, Kentucky.
Norvell also received an offer from Temple University, but Beach says just because his quarterback had two offers, doesn’t mean he wasn’t being considered by others.
“Coaches are very selective as to when they’ll offer a football scholarship to a quarterback,” Beach mentioned. “But Trenton has been getting a lot of looks from Division 1 schools.”
The soon-to-be senior quarterback threw for 958 yards and six touchdowns in a run-first offense in 2010 and was getting looks from South Carolina, Clemson and Florida State.
