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.
RB/DB Chris Barclay 5-10 165 Louisville, Kentucky (Male)
Coached by Bob Redman, the father of NFL quarterback, Chris Redman
DB Campbell Black 6-4 195 Oklahoma City, Oklahoma (Bishop McGuinness)

OL/DL Chris Brown Brant, Michigan (Merrill)
P/K Kevin Broderick Indianapolis, Indiana (Breuf Jesuit)
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.

QB Mike Duda 6-2 180 Winnetka, Illinois (New Trier)
