Jeremy Larkin, a three-star class-of-2016 running back from Cincinnati, has de-committed from his hometown school and flipped his commitment to Northwestern. Larkin made the announcement on Twitter Sunday:
Larkin committed to Cincinnati in June despite being one of Northwestern's top targets. Northwestern picked up a commitment from three-star running back Jesse Brown two weeks later. The Wildcats, after going 10-2 in 2015, now have a pledge from both. Cincinnati went 7-5 in 2015.
At 5-foot-10, 180 pounds, Larkin has a build similar to Brown (5-foot-10, 185 pounds). Both also reportedly run 4.45-second 40-yard dashes.
Here are Larkin's highlights:
Larkin also had offers from Boston College, Bowling Green, Miami (Ohio), Ohio and Wake Forest. According to 247 Sports, Illinois, Kentucky had also recruited him, but had not offered.
Larkin is a former high school teammate of Northwestern defensive tackle Jordan Thompson at La Salle High School. Thompson, the highest-rated recruit in Northwestern's class of 2015, was one of five true freshmen to play right away for Northwestern in 2015.
Larkin is the 20th commitment of Northwestern's class of 2016.
