Sam Gerak, a three-star center from Avon, Ohio, announced his commitment to Northwestern via Twitter on Monday night.

Gerak, who is listed at 6-foot-3 and 270 pounds, is ranked as the No. 2 center in the country by 247 Sports.

He is the second player to commit to Northwestern's 2017 recruiting class. The first was Blake Gallagher, a three-star linebacker from Massachusetts, who committed on Dec. 14.

Illinois, Iowa State, Rutgers and Syracuse, among others, had offered Gerak. Schools including Nebraska, Michigan State, Penn State and Duke had shown interest in him.
