Northwestern football pulled in yet another recruit for its rapidly filling 2017 recruiting class on Thursday afternoon. Peter McIntyre announced his commitment via Twitter just a day after receiving a scholarship offer from NU:

McIntyre, listed at 6-foot-2, 210 pounds, is a product out of Toledo, Ohio, the third Buckeye State resident to commit to Northwestern this cycle. McIntyre's 247 Sports composite rank pegs him as a 3-star prospect, the 76th best player at his position and the 46th best player out of the state.
McIntyre did not have any other offers from power conference teams, but had received offers from nearby Miami (OH) and Toledo. He had also taken an unofficial visit to Michigan State, per 247 Sports.
McIntyre played both sides of the ball in high school, adding 767 receiving yards and 10 touchdowns from the wide receiver spot to his 41 tackles as a linebacker. His full Hudl tape can be viewed above.
The Ohio native is the second linebacker of the class, joining inside backer Blake Gallagher. Northwestern's class continues to fill out in a major way.
