New, 6 comments

He's the 13th member of the class.

Early Sunday morning, Northwestern received its 13th commit for the class of 2017 in the form of three-star safety J.R. Pace. He tweeted out a video to announce his commitment.

Pace has a .8603 composite score according to 247 Sports and is ranked as the 529th best player in the class, 40th best safety and 53rd best player in Georgia.

Standing 6-foot-1 and weighing in at 200 pounds, Pace played both safety and wide receiver at Woodward Academy, a school that has produced several professional athletes, including current NFL players Juwan Thompson and Henry Anderson. He chose Northwestern over several other schools, including Power 5 foes Boston College, Duke, Kansas St., Maryland, Minnesota, Purdue, Vanderbilt and Wake Forest.

Should he play safety at Northwestern, Pace is the third guy at that position in the class of 2017 after Austin Hiller and Bryce Jackson.

His highlights are above.
