Three More Solid Commits

This morning it was WR <b>Reggie McPherson's</b> confirmation that he had visited Illinois over the weekend, but was sticking by his commit to NU, then Reggie got some good news, and so did the NU Coaches on both sides of the ball...

Wildcat Fans got a double dose of good news today.

First WR Reggie McPherson opened his mail and discovered he'd been accepted by Northwestern University. Reggie had committed to the Cats earlier in the month, but NU Coach Randy Walker, following his rules about commitments, had to hold off on accepting that commit until the admissions office acted. NU aid yes, and so did Coach Walker.

Then comes another "stealth" prospect; Aaron Burdex from Chicasha, Oklahoma [pronounced Chick-a-shay]. He's 6-5, runs a 4.5 :40, and gives the NU Quarterbacks another speedy frosh to be a part of the mix.

Then comes late word from Humble Texas Defensive End David Ngene - who also committed today. At 6-4 and 260 with 4.7 speed, he'll start to work into the D-Line mix. He's started for the last 3 years on both sides of the ball and was All District last year.

Talk about a good start to a week that had a less than positive weekend before it. The Wildcat Coaches still have 7 days of recruiting before the Christmas "dead" period.
