NU lands Calif. safety

Northwestern has landed a verbal commitment from a Southern California safety, giving the Wildcats their third pedge within a week.
Terrance Brown appears to be one of Northwestern's under-the-radar specials. It was the very first offer for the 6-foot-1, 195-pounder from Los Alamitos, who was not in the Rivals database when he committed. He verballed to the Wildcats as soon as he received the offer and without ever setting foot on campus, according to ocvarsity.com, which broke the story.
"I was speechless," he told ocvarsity.com. "I've been talking to them the longest."
