2012 college football preview: Utah Utes player to watch
Jeffrey D. Allred, Deseret News
Although small in stature, big things are expected from 5-foot-8, 178-pound Geoff Norwood, a walk-on from Los Angeles who has worked his way into the rotation at wide receiver and as a punt returner.
Norwood transferred to Utah after playing his freshman season at Fullerton (Calif.) College. A wrist injury, however, sidelined him in 2011 — putting his debut with the Utes on hold until now. He has three years of eligibility remaining.
Norwood earned all-conference honors at Fullerton, averaging 18.2 yards per reception and 11.3 yards on punt returns. He scored 15 touchdowns as a senior at Crenshaw High.
