February 6, 2013The fax machine at the Nicolet Center will got its annual workout today, as all of Northwestern's 19 commits faxed in their signed national letters of intent by 9:45 a.m. Central time.
Head coach Pat Fitzgerald will formally introduce the new Wildcats this afternoon, but in the meantime WildcatReport breaks down the class:
Northwestern has three players listed as running backs in this class, but only two will play in the backfield at NU. Warren Miles Long and Xavier Menifield are the runners, while Keith Watkins will likely play corner. Marcus McShepard will also play cornerback for the Cats.
The Wildcats brought in a pair of oustide linebackers -- Anthony Walker Jr. and Brett Walsh, who ironically committed on the same day -- while the rest of the class is made up of one-offs. Alviti is the only quarterback, Macan Wilson the single wide receiver, Eric Joraskie the sole defensive tackle, Jayme Taylor the isolated superback and Hunter Niswander the solitary kicker/punter -- and the first since Jeff Budzien in 2009.
