Paddy Fisher, a three-star linebacker from Katy, Texas, committed to Northwestern on Tuesday via his Twitter account.
The 52nd-ranked inside linebacker in the nation, according to 247 Sports, chose Northwestern while also holding offers from Wisconsin, Maryland, Baylor, Boston College, Texas Tech and others.
He is the 17th commit in Northwestern's 2016 recruiting class. He is also the fifth player in the class to choose Northwestern over Wisconsin.
Fisher is one of three prospects from Katy that Northwestern has offered, and there has been speculation that the three might want to play together in college. The other two are three-star safeties Travis Whillock and Collin Wilder.
Update: Whillock committed to NU less than an hour after Fisher did. Wilder committed to Houston though soon after Whillock's announcement.
