EVANSTON, Ill. (AP) Northwestern added a 20-player signing class on Wednesday that is heavy on defense as it tries to bounce back from consecutive losing seasons.
The class features sought-after defensive lineman Jordan Thompson. The Cincinnati native drew interest from Michigan State and Notre Dame, among others.
"He was a young man who was heavily recruited," Wildcats coach Pat Fitzgerald said. "He's a very dynamic athlete who's played multiple sports."
