Defensive back Parrker Westphal (Bolingbrook, Ill./Bolingbrook) had deliberated at length with his family on what school he would choose. With his list narrowed down to Northwestern and Vanderbilt, Westphal committed to Northwestern on Friday.
After plenty of visits, research and phone calls with coaches, the process was finally over for the No. 96 ranked prospect in the country. It was a decision that didn’t come easy for either Westphal or his family.
