Daytona Beach Seabreeze quarterback Trenton Novell has figured out how to get attention during the offseason.

The 6-foot-5, 220-pound rising senior has picked up offers from Temple and Marshall within the past two weeks and West Virginia could make it three by the end of March.

That’s not a bad month for Norvell, especially considering that he didn’t even have to put on a helmet.

It's the power of camps and combines. An NCAA Division I-A prospect can go from a blip on the radar to a legitimate recruit in no time if he performs well at various offseason events.

“They’re pretty important,” said Norvell after the first regional Nike Elite 11 quarterback camp at UCF  on Saturday morning. “They all look at the film, college coaches look at this. It gives you an extra step if you do good in these.”

Norvell's commitment to going to combines has undoubtedly helped his visibility among college coaches. He attended both the Under Armour national combine in Orlando in January and U.S Army National Combine in San Antonio a week later.

“There’s been a couple (coaches) that have been like ‘we saw you at the U.S. Army All-American combine.’ I got honorable mention there,” Norvell said. “And then they’ll probably see this one and talk about it, get you interviews, stuff like that.”

It should not come as a surprise that Norvell’s offers came after his performance at the U.S. Army combine. Yes, he has prototypical size and tremendous arm-strength, but guiding a run-oriented offense has prevented Norvell from putting up big numbers (he threw for 958 yards and six touchdowns along with six interceptions in 2010.)

But now exposure from doing well at combines has given Norvell’s recruitment a boost.

 “It’s definitely a relief,” Norvell said of finally receiving his first offers. “You go through all this time and some people don’t have (offers) and are still trying to go out and do the best they can do, including me, I’m still here. I’m not going to be satisfied until I get that one to where I’m like ‘all right, this is where I’m going to be for sure.’”

Norvell left on Sunday for vists to West Virginia and Marshall. He said that West Virginia might be close to offering, which would only add to what is turning out to be a tremendous offseason for Norvell.
