Three-star safety Travis Whillock commits to Northwestern

Whillock, NU's 18th class of 2016 commit, chose the Wildcats over Houston and a late push from Wisconsin. He joins high school teammate Paddy Fisher, who committed less than an hour earlier.

Travis Whillock, a three-star safety from Katy, Tx., has committed to Northwestern. Whillock tweeted the news Tuesday less than an hour after high school teammate Paddy Fisher also committed to the Wildcats:

The 6-foot-1, 185-pound safety is one of three class-of-2016 teammates with Northwestern offers. Fisher committed earlier Tuesday, and safety Collin Wilder, the most highly-rated prospect of the trio, has not yet decided. He has offers from Wisconsin, Duke, Texas Tech, Vanderbilt, and many others, as well as interest from Baylor, Texas and other top programs.

Update: Wilder committed to Houston soon after Whillock's announcement.

Whillock is yet another player to pick Northwestern over Wisconsin, as the Badgers offered the safety in late May and brought him in for a visit in June. Whillock becomes the sixth class-of-2016 player to do so. Fisher was the fifth.

Whillock also had offers from Houston, Boston College, Kansas, Utah State, Tulane, Nevada and Texas State. His 247 Composite score is 0.8148. Here are his Hudl highlights:
