Northwestern Wildcats Receive Pair of Verbals
They chose Pat Fitzgerald and the Northwestern Wildcats, who receive their third and fourth verbal commitments for the class of 2013.
Wilson's blazing 4.4 (40-yard dash) speed and agility will be utilized in the spread offense as a slot receiver, as it did during his junior season in 2011: he finished with 91 receptions for 1,639 yards and 25 touchdowns, marking the second straight year with at least 1,200 yards.
North, who picked the Wildcats over Boise State, rated the University "at least a 9" on a scale of 1-10 after his campus visit last week, reports Louie Vaccher of the Wildcat Report. The 6'3", 280-pound offensive lineman could immediately contend for starting position next season.
Other than Northwestern, Wilson held offers from California and New Mexico before pledging. North was offered by Arkansas State, Boise State and San Diego State before committing to Fitzgerald.
Wilson and North join 4-star quarterback Matt Alviti and 3-star offensive tackle Blake King as part of Northwestern's recruiting class for 2013.
