Talks About NU Verbal Commitment

Northwestern received a verbal commitment from one of the top prospects in the Badger State. Nick Roach talks about his decision.

"I chose Northwestern because of the academics and its close to home," said linebacker Nick Roach.

"I played both running back and wide receiver in high school but I'm going to be playing outside linebacker at Northwestern.

"Northern Illinois was my only other scholarship offer but I had a lot of schools that were still calling."

Roach, a 6-foot-1, 217-pounder, from Milwaukee (WI) Lutheran had 87 tackles, 2 sacks and he returned an interception for a touchdown in 2002.
