Pat Fitzgerald has offered 15 four-star juniors thus far, including five quarterbacks given four stars. Bolingbrook High School star Aaron Bailey is NU's top-rated quarterback, the nation's seventh-ranked signal-caller. Trent Hosick is ranked right behind him.
Louisville product Jason Hatcher is Northwestern's top-ranked four-star prospect, and stands as the third-ranked defensive end in the country.

NU also has 10 offers out to three-star prospects. Local product Nathan Marcus, a tight end from Glenbard West High School, was ranked the No. 23 tight end in the nation. Defensive end Jay Arnold, a three-star prospect, has stated that Northwestern is in his top-five.
