Signing Day: Northwestern

Signing Day: Northwestern

A great class for Pat Fitzgerald and company. Ohio linebacker Ifeadi Odenigbo is one of the Wildcats’ highest rated signees over the last few years. He has 4.5 speed and great pass rush ability. Four-star offensive lineman Adam DePietro spurned many other offers to sign with Northwestern, as did several of his future teammates, Ian Park, Kenton Playko, Eric Olson and Connor Mahoney.

Running behind them will be Malin Jones, the Wildcats’ top in-state commitment. Jones is a nice sized, 6’0, 210-lb back who can catch the ball out of the backfield. Speaking of catching the ball, sure handed Mike McHugh may be the sleeper on the class.

Eric Wilson may be one of the best all around athletes in the class. The Michigan native could play receiver or safety at the next level. Joining Odenigbo in the front seven will be tough, strong tackle Greg Kuhar and 6’5 defensive end Dean Lowry.
