Simeon shooting guard Zack Norvell is the top wing prospect in the state of Illinois’ class of 2016.  Norvell is a smooth lefty that can score and improved his all-around game over the last year.  He is in the process of taking his official visits.  We caught up with the #2 prospect in the state to talk about them.

This past weekend he took an official to Iowa State.  What stood out about that visit?

“It was amazing!  The coaching staff and fan base is amazing.”

He talked about what he liked about the Cyclones coaching staff.

“Great men on and off the court.  They want tough minded guys who really want to win the Big 12.”

His first official visit was to Gonzaga.  Norvell broke down what impresses him about their program.

“The players and the amazing fan base.  They also have the coaches and how much they win and strive for success.”

After that he took a trip out east to see Georgetown who has recent Chicago prospects Paul White and LJ Peak on roster.

“It was great seeing the amazing history they have and their coaches are really down to earth.”

What is next for him with recruiting?

“I’m going to Florida State next week for an official visit.”

Norvell tells us this will be his last visit and he plans on making his decision between Gonzaga, Georgetown, Iowa State, and Florida State sometime in November inking a national letter of intent during the early signing period.

The senior guard told us what he will be looking for to separate his finalists.

“Just where the best fit for me will be and I’m comfortable with the players and coaching as well.”
