"Coach (Adam) Cushing from Northwestern called me and said they loved the improvements that they saw in me," Dieffenbach said. "He said he met with Coach Fitzgerald and they decided they wanted to offer me a scholarship. Northwestern is such a great athletic and academic institution, so it was great news."
Moments after relaying the news of the Northwestern offer, Dieffenbach received the news from Minnesota.
"Coach (John) Butler from Minnesota talked to my coach and said they loved what they saw on my film," Dieffenbach continued. "So they decided they wanted to offer me a scholarship as well."
