Northwestern has its fourth recruit of the 2014 class, a 3-star shooting guard Scott Lindsey from Fenwick in Oak Park.
Lindsey, 6'5 and 180 pounds, was deciding between Iowa and Vanderbilt and also had offers from Drake, Indiana State, and Utah State. As always, I don't watch high school basketball, but this is important:
Saw Scott Lindsey in July... High-level shooter w/ great basketball IQ. Solid SG next to McIntosh.— Nick Medline (@NMedlineFOX) September 23, 2013
I'm told Lindsey is a "long" 2-guard at 6-foot-5. Good shooter w/major upside. #Northwestern still would like to add big to '14 class.— Teddy Greenstein (@TeddyGreenstein) September 23, 2013
Chris Collins, we get it. You're good at recruiting. That's the second guy from Chicagoland (alongside Vic Law) and the third player that had offers from other major basketball schools. Much like football, this is the best class Northwestern has ever put together. With four players in the class, NU now has 13 players under scholarship for 2014 -- but that's assuming Michael Turner comes back to basketball. If he never returns to Northwestern, there's a fifth spot, and with the way Collins is reeling players in, that extra spot is probably a bonus for Northwestern. They have a point guard (Bryant McIntosh) a shooting guard (Lindsey) a small forward (Law) and a stretch four (Gavin Skelly) and now can turn towards a big man.
