Northwestern picks up another Texan

Northwestern, enjoying arguably one of its better recruiting classes in years, has been consistent in landing players from Texas this year. The Wildcats picked up another Lone Star State commitment Monday afternoon, its third of the 2014 class.

Three-star defensive end/outside linebacker hybrid Noah Westerfield (Frisco, Texas/Wakeland) became the Wildcats’ 13th overall commitment. A 6-foot-3, 215-pound hybrid defender, Westerfield chose Northwestern over SMU, Wake Forest, Duke and Boise State and rising interest from TCU.
