"Great education, great players and great coaches. That's why I committed to Northwestern," said defensive lineman Trevor Schultz.
"I was offered by most of the MAC schools and Purdue just came in the picture and they said they were going to offer.
"Northwestern has everything I'm looking for in a school. I loved the campus (Visit 12/6) and I like the fact that the city of Chicago is a stones throw away."
Schultz, a 6-foot-4, 255-pounder, from Battle Creek (MI) Harper Creek is a four-year varsity starter.
Schultz was named all-state and all-league on both sides of the ball in 2002. He made 82 tackles and had 10 sacks this season. He'll play defensive tackle for the Wildcats.
