"I have committed to Northwestern," Coverdale stated Monday. "I thought about everything and realized Northwestern is the right place for me, and there's no reason for me to look at any other schools."
"Northwestern is the right school and it's the right time to do this," he added. "The football program is on the rise, and the academic opportunities are limitless for me. I'm just proud to be a Wildcat."
"The coaching staff is great and they go to bowl games every year," Coverdale continued. "I"m excited about competing for Big Ten championships. Coach (Pat) Fitzgerald is the best, and I'm looking forward to playing for him. I love Chicago and think it will be a great place to spend the next four years of my life."
"No more visits for me," he exclaimed. "I am 100% a Wildcat."
