Many have not heard of Joel Belding, but several colleges have and came a calling for his services at the next level. This weekend Joel made a verbal commitment to Northwestern and Coach Randy Walker. Coach Walker knows about Ohio linemen, as he's a Ohio native and had coached in the MAC at Miami of Ohio before heading to Northwestern.
