From the Sentinel-Standard:

During an event hosted by Ionia Parks and Recreation, Michigan State senior linebacker Chris Norman announced that he will not be pursuing a career in the NFL, but will be going to study at seminary.

The 2013 defensive captain said about two years ago he found Jesus Christ and wants to devote his life to his work.

“In the Gospel there’s a story about somebody that stumbles across a field and then they found a treasure hidden in that field. As a result of finding that treasure, they sold everything they had so they can by that field,” Norman said. “That’s pretty much what happened to me when I found Christ, so once I met him and fell absolutely in love with him, everything else was not as attractive in comparison.

“With that being said, everybody doesn’t have to make the same kind of decision if that’s not what you are being led to. It just so happens that I was. So, because of who (Christ) is, that made the decision easy for me.”
