Northwestern has added its seventh commit in less than a week, this time adding three-star defensive end Zach Allen. Allen's commitment comes less than a day after DE Trent Goens committed. 247's Steve Wiltfong spoke with Allen about his commitment:
"They told me how Trent committed and they had two more spots and they wanted me to take one of them. I talked to my family and we thought Northwestern had the best combination of athletics and academics. Coach (Pat) Fitzgerald, Coach (Bob) Heffner and Coach (Marty) Long have been great through the process."
A Connecticut native, Allen chose NU over Boston College and UConn, among others. Check out his highlights above and his 247 profile.
