Norton Reopens Recruitment
Today that number stands at zero. Talbert de-committed in the days following the announcement, citing that the conference move impacted his decision. On Tuesday, news spread that Norton, too, would reconsider his collegiate options.
"I have decided to decmmit from Creighton university and reopen my recruitment. Can't wait to see what God has planned for my future," Norton tweeted on Tuesday morning.
Norton, a 5-foot-10 point guard, tore his ACL in his junior season at Rock Bridge High School in Columbia, MO. It is unclear if the injury played any part in the decision to look at other schools.
With Norton looking elsewhere and former Bluejay Andre Yates set to transfer, Creighton's only current option at point guard after Austin Chatman and Devin Brooks exhaust their eligibility following the 2014-15 season, is Isaiah Zierden. Zierden is fresh off a redshirt season, but may not be alone for long.
It is expected that Creighton will use one of its three opening scholarships on a point guard. Casey Benson, a 6-foot-3 player from New Mexico visited campus last week and holds a Creighton offer. Others with scholarship offers include Josh Perkins, one of the nation's most sought-after recruits, Sandy Cohen, a Wisconsinite who is receiving increasing attention from coaches following a strong showing this spring, and Elijah Cottrill of Pennsylvania.
