You kind of knew it was coming. Late last week I posted about how The Masters usually seems to kick off Northwestern football commitment season. WildcatReport.com announced today that RB John Moten, a three star back from St. Louis (John Burroughs High School), Missouri, committed to Northwestern. Moten, a 6-foot, 188 pound back chose NU over Missouri, BC, Wake Forest, Illinois, Purdue and Syracuse, according to WR. Welcome aboard John!
Moten is the third 2015 commitment for Pat Fitzgerald as earlier this week LB Nathan Fox of Houston (Clear Lake), Texas earned the distinction of being the first member of the class. Fox chose NU over Mississippi State, Wake Forest and Utah. Then yesterday morning Tommy Vitale, another LB and younger brother of current starting superback, Dan Vitale both received and offer and accepted. The ‘Cats have done an absolutely incredible job of landing younger brothers in the program including some recent blue chips. It’s clearly part of the overall strategy and in the coming weeks we’ll dive in to this tactic which results in what may be one of the more unique recruiting storylines in major college football.
Welcome to Wildcat Nation John, Tommy and Nathan! Let’s keep the recruiting mojo going!
