Quarterback Jason Whittaker has signed with Northwestern football. The three-star pro-style quarterback was the first player to commit to Northwestern back in late 2016 and the first to sign in the Early Signing Period.

We spoke with him last year about his expectations and the recruiting process. Welcome to the Northwestern Wildcats, Jason!

A quarterback needs to be a leader, and Jason Whittaker is leading this Class as the first #B1GCats signee on #NSD18! pic.twitter.com/tGLnfyMTsN— #B1GCats (@NU_Sports) December 20, 2017
Whittaker’s junior season highlights show a mobile quarterback with a strong, accurate arm. He also plays in a spread system currently, which certainly helps. He’ll have a chance to compete with current freshman Aidan Smith and Class of 2017 quarterback Andrew Marty to succeed redshirt sophomore Clayton Thorson.
