RB Brian Calhoun headlines a group of 41 prospects that will be on hand for Northwestern's Big Ten opener vs. Michigan State. The prospects are coming from nine different states and there are some big time prospects on the list.

Northwestern University opens Big Ten play tomorrow in Evanston against Michigan State. Several prospects will be on hand to take a campus tour and watch the Wildcats in action. These are the prospects that will be on campus.

OL Scott Anderson 6-7 265 Lafayette, Indiana (McCutcheon)

Wisconsin and others have offered a scholarship.

DB Gideon Akande 5-10 185 Chicago (Lane Tech)

One of Chicago's top prospects. Had a solid showing at the Purdue Nike Camp.

Coached by Bob Redman, the father of NFL quarterback, Chris Redman

RB Brian Calhoun 5-11 190 Oak Creek, Wisconsin

One of the nations finest running back prospects. Calhoun says he's narrowed his choices to Purdue and Iowa but he'll be in Evanston this weekend and that's a good sign.

OL Jon Cochran 6-6 275 West Des Moines, Iowa (Valley)

One of the best offensive linemen in the Midwest. Cochran is said to be a heavy Iowa lean but I predict he will set up a Northwestern official visit this weekend.
