'Cats Hosted Recruits

The 'Cats are fired up for Joepa's visit to Ryan Field and several prospects were on hand to watch the game including official visitor Kevin Mims.

The Wildcats will be going after another big upset today when the Nittany Lions come calling. Randy Walker and his staff will also be hosting some top recruits including a defensive end that will be on his official visit.

Kevin Mims, a defensive end from The Woodlands, Texas will be in Evanston today for an official visit. Mims visited Texas Tech last weekend and he does have a Northwestern scholarship offer.

Verbal commitment Ross Lane is also in Evanston today but his visit is not official as was reported yesterday. Lane will be on campus today as an unofficial visitor.

Others in attendance include defensive back Andre Butler (South Holland, Illinois), Tom Grogan, a junior quarterback from Orland Park (Ill.) Sandberg, Nick Urban, an offensive lineman from Brookfield (Wis.) Central and tight end Mike Dery from Midland (MI) H.H. Dow.

Dery and Urban haven't been offered scholarships. The official visitor list for December and January are starting to take shape and we'll have those lists updated starting Monday.
