Kyle Wagner, a 6-foot-3, 225-pound, linebacker from Jacksonville (Fla.) The Bolles School gave the Wildcats their first verbal commitment of the year.
Wagner is being recruited by Northwestern assistant coach Pat Fitzgerald. Kyle will make his official visit next Friday (11-15) along with six other recruits.
Fitzgerald knows a little bit about linebackers, after all, he was a two-time national Defensive Player of the Year while at Northwestern.
Coach Fitzgerald is very excited about having Wagner in the fold.
