"Since I've been a freshman, my main priority has been to win the state championships," Darlington said. "I want to be dominant (this season)."
The star junior has been on many school's radars for a few seasons, but he's continuing to generate more interest this offseason. Auburn, Georgia, , North Carolina, and Northwestern all made recent stops to his high school. His most recent offer came from Washington State.
However, Darlington mentioned he hasn't set a list of favorites, but schools such as Auburn and Florida State are pretty high on his list.
"I honestly probably would love to go to a school that's a winner," Darlington said. "I've always played on pretty successful teams. I would prefer to go to a school that's already established."
When asked if the star lineman could see himself in Evanston, wearing purple and white.
"I definitely think I could," Darlington said. "(Northwestern) is a good football program and a good academic institution."
"They have some interest from me because of academics. I'm in the top of my class and I want to go somewhere with academic opportunities. Northwestern sets itself apart because they have some great academic opportunities."
