A former top-900 three-star recruit in the class of 2018, Norris redshirted his freshman season and appeared in one game, a win over Maryland on Nov. 10.
As a redshirt freshman in 2019, Norris made his only appearance of the season in the Eastern Illinois win on Sept. 7. He was named the scout team player of the week in connection with the team’s preparation for Michigan in November.
Norris was a two-time Indiana Football Coaches Association All-State selection and an Indiana Mr. Football candidate.
As a recruit Norris was ranked the No. 34 weak-side defensive end nationally by Rivals and the No. 4 prospect in Indiana by ESPN. He picked IU over Missouri, Purdue and Tennessee.
The athletically gifted Norris won the 2018 state title and the 2017 conference title in the 110-meter hurdles.
Norris arrived at Indiana at around 200 pounds and never seemed to be able to put on the weight needed to play on the defensive line in the Big Ten. He was last listed on the roster at 214 pounds.
