SUU Center Keyan Norman to join BYU football as a graduate transfer

It has been reported that 6’3” 290 pound DL/center Keyan Norman will be transferring to BYU this fall as a graduate transfer (Class of 2016).  Norman has played the last two seasons at Southern Utah and amazingly will graduate after just two years.  He will add some depth at the center position for the Cougars.

Norman prepped at Lone Peak High School (Highland, UT), where he was a multi-sport athlete.  He was a three year letterman in football and baseball, and was best known for his skill on the pitching mound.  Norman was a two-year all-state honorable mention selection in baseball and was named the 5A pitcher of the year in 2011 after leading his team to the state championship game.  On the gridiron he played on the offensive and defensive lines and recorded 27 tackles as a senior.  He was voted Region 4’s most valuable defensive lineman, team MVP, and was an All-State second team selection.  He served an LDS mission in Orlando, Florida following his High School graduation.  Norman wasn’t rated out of High School and SUU was his only scholarship offer.

As a Freshman in 2014 Norman played in all of SUU’s 12 games as a defensive lineman. He had nine total tackles and one quarterback hurry.  He was moved to the offensive line as a sophomore in 2015 and started every game at center.  He was an Big Sky All-Conference honorable mention selection.
