"Yes, I committed to Northwestern," said linebacker Kyle Wagner.

"I didn't have any other scholarship offers. Bowling Green, U Conn and Boston College were all calling."

Wagner, a 6-foot-3, 225-pounder, from Jacksonville (Fla.) Bolles is a three-year varsity starter. He had 141 tackles as a junior and was named 2nd team all-state.

Why did Wagner choose the Wildcats?
