Local Two-Sport Star on the Radar

Local Two-Sport Star on the Radar

Coach Cross would love to see more local kids playing basketball at Toledo. Coach Amstutz would love to see more local kids playing football at Toledo. Rocket fans would like to see more local kids play basketball and football at Toledo. Can one high school star fill both voids?

Every Rocket fan would love to see more local athletes playing basketball and football at Toledo. So would UT basketball coach Gene Cross and UT football coach Tom Amstutz. Enter Eddie Cheatham Norrils.

Cheatham Norrils is just a sophomore at St. John's High school in Toledo, but is already catching the eye of college coaches. Norrils is a two-sport star, and the University of Toledo has taken notice.

Norrils is a wide receiver and defensive back on the St John's football team. Coach Tom Amstutz has already offered Cheatham a place on the University of Toledo football team. A high school player cannot receive an official letter of scholarship in-aid until his junior year of high school, but Toledo has verbally offered Norrils with the understanding an official offer will come in the mail once it is allowed.

Cheatham is also an outstanding basketball player. The 5-10, 170 pound point guard has already receives basketball offers from Toledo, Bowling Green, Notre Dame, Xavier, and Penn State.

With just being a sophomore in high school, he has plenty of time to make his college decision, and to decide on which sport he wants to play in college. He may even choose to play both, but right now he isn't sure which sport he wants to play in the future.

Rocket Digest will keep you updated over the next year or two on Cheatham Norrils status as both a Toledo basketball prospect and a Toledo football prospect.
