INTERACTIVE MAP: Where does Northwestern's 2015 recruiting class come from?

Late last year, I began a project compiling all of Northwestern's football recruits since 2002 into a map. I've updated the map to include the 2015 class. The class mostly reflects some common trends in Northwestern's recruiting. For example,

The Wildcats picked up five Chicago-area recruits in this class, up from three in 2014. Pat Fitzgerald and co. also continued to prioritize Texas as a recruiting base, picking up two players in '15, following up on three each in '14 and '13. This class is now the second-straight Northwestern class since 2007 to not feature a player from Florida.
