He could play there if he puts his mind to it and wants to do it."
Norman, a three-year starter, received recruiting looks from Minnesota-Duluth, St. Cloud State, Minnesota State Mankato and Harvard, a school he was leaning toward at one time, according to Hietala.

He was able to understand quick enough and communicate that to his teammates on the line. They were a pretty special group of linemen this year.
"I'm really hoping that Phil decides that he wants to play," he said. "I'd love to see it. Of all the players that we have had come through in all the years, he is probably the one that has the best potential to be successful at that level."
