Edgy Tim O'Halloran knew it wouldn't take long for Frank Covey IV to commit to Northwestern.

The three-star 2023 athlete from nearby Mt. Prospect (Ill.) Prospect was "blown away" from the Wildcats' offer, said O'Halloran, who has been covering Illinois high school football since the early 1990s. After all, it was Covey IV's first scholarship offer. From anyone.
