With hundreds of Division I transfers looking to find new homes this spring, the Gophers recently got involved with Alabama Birmingham junior point guard Nick Norton.

Norton told the Star Tribune on Thursday that he expects to visit Minnesota's program in early May, but he doesn't have an exact date scheduled. The visit was first reported by FanRag's Jon Rothstein.

Norton, a 5-10, 168-pound Bloomington, Ill., native, was released from his scholarship at UAB and announced his decision to transfer April 2.

"The past four years I wasn't always perfect but I left it all out there and have zero regrets," Norton wrote in part of his statement on Twitter. "As hard a decision as this is I'm excited and ready to start my next journey to pursue a master's degree and finish my athletic career elsewhere."
