While maintaining that Tom Brandstater, another redshirt sophomore, is still his starter despite a 51-percent completion average, Hill said, "I'm going to tell you what, Sean is on point to now to be ready. We're gonna use him if we need to. Especially if we need a spark."
Norton, a 5-foot-11, 175-pounder who is described as a Doug Flutie-style player, led California high school quarterbacks with 4,067 yards and 44 touchdowns as a senior in 2003 at Hart (Valencia, Calif.) High where he earned Parada All-American honors.
Hill said he has not decided to assign quarters or chose a specific situation for Norton but will "see how it goes" in employing the backup. Hill also said it is not definite Norton will play.
