Was Saturday a good day for Recruiting?

We know that two prospects from the defensive side and 3 from the offense were visiting NU Saturday.<br><br> Did anyone come close to committing?

As reported earlier, Defensive End Kevin Mims was one of the official visitors at NU last weekend...

"I had a great visit to Northwestern," said defensive end Kevin Mims.

"I didn't commit.

Mims is a 6-foot-4, 250-pounder from The Woodlands, Texas.

Mims projects as a run-stuffing DE who could eventually become play-making pass rusher.

Clocking a 4.09 20-yard shutttle at the Texas Tech summer camp shows ridiculous change-of-direction skills as well as plenty of upside for the position.

There were other prospects in the stands too:
  • 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
  • Tight end Mike Dery from Midland (MI) H.H. Dow.
NU Commit Ross Lane also was on an unofficial visit to the NU Campus.
