Signing Day is a scant three weeks away, and on that first Wednesday of February we will for sure welcome at least 19 new members to Northwestern’s recruiting class.
This is already shaping up to be Northwestern’s best recruiting class in school history and will certainly be the stars we will cheer for in the future. We will get into those names a little bit closer to signing day (although I bet most of you already know who Matt Alviti and Godwin Igwebuike are). The last piece to the class appears to be falling off place.
Four-star wide receiver James Clark of New Smyrna Beach, Florida appears to be drifting away from Northwestern. Florida recently jumped into the picture with a scholarship offer and the Orlando Sentinel reports that White had an in-home visit from Florida coach Joker Phillips and that it went well. He plans to visit Florida on Jan. 25 and has visited such big schools as Nebraska and Clemson. He also recently had Ohio State contact him and reports are that White will listen to them. The Buckeyes, according to Rivals, also offered him a scholarship recently.
The fact that this is dragging out probably does not bode well for Northwestern. He visited NU back in November and called NU the “complete package” but that was before Florida and Nebraska entered the fray.
The lack of news trickling out on Clark and Northwestern seems to suggest that NU has been muscled out of the running for this speedy receiver.
Clark is pretty much acknowledged by the recruiting sites as the last player on Northwestern’s radar for recruiting. Since it seems he is off the radar, NU’s 19-recruit class seems to be complete.
