Norvel Pelle Bringing Cali Sunshine to NYC

On Saturday I got a chance to talk to future St. John's recruit, Norvel Pelle.

The 6'10" big man is one of Coach Steve Lavin's top 100 recruits that are coming in next season.

A very down to earth guy, Pelle really took his time in conversing with me about his decision to come to St. John's and more.

Here's a little excerpt:

From the City of Angels hails another shining star who is making his way to the bright lights of New York City.

Norvel Pelle of Price High School (CA) joins Amir Garrett and Dwayne Polee II as the third recruit from the Golden State to come to Queens in Steve Lavin’s one full year with St. John’s.

Pelle began his high school career at Dominguez (CA), famous for alumni like Dallas Mavericks’ center Tyson Chandler and Milwaukee Bucks’ Brandon Jennings, before transferring to Price. The 6’10” Pelle is bringing his long, lanky frame to the Red Storm, a team for which he believes the sky is the limit.

“I picked [St. John’s] because I felt it would be a perfect situation,” said Pelle. “Having a whole new team and a new coaching staff, we would have a chance to rebuild St. John’s.”
