2015 Intro: Kendrick Norton

Kendrick Norton is another fine prospect from Florida, attending Trinity high school; a high school that has been place that North Carolina has raided for talent in the class of 2015.

Norton is a 6'3", 283 pound defensive tackle who is a strong worker, Monday through Sunday, who made a name for himself at Trinity high school.

Norton was able to inform TarheelIllustrated that UNC has been in contact with the big guy, being one of the schools that have been showing him some high interest as of late.

Currently though, Norton holds offers from schools such as Vanderbilt, UNC, Indiana, Boston, UAB, UMass, Maryland, North Dakota State, and Wake Forest; however, will be looking to see if any other schools will show some interest.

Norton is a player that will be able to provide one size and strength on the line, as Norton told THI that his hands and quickness off, along with his aggressive play style are some of the factors that coaches have admired about him.

Along with those attributes, Norton being able to take on blocks without being pushed back are some of the key factors that he has been able to solidify as his strengths.

However, Norton wants to improve his conditioning so that he has the chance to play both ways if needed, but has been working on that in the offseason.

North Carolina has been on his list of schools he likes, but right now, doesn't have any favorites on his list, as he will be looking to make his commitment to a school during the next offseason.

UNC has been in contact with Norton in the past, as Norton was able to inform THI.

"I talked to the coach that recruited me and he reminds me of my head coach and I like that. I think it is a great school and puts out a lot of great defensive lineman."

No matter what though, the UNC coaches are out and about for the class of 2015, as they will be looking to reload both on the offensive side and the defensive side, adding players like Norton that will solidify North Carolina as one of the top teams in the ACC.
