Another pass-rusher has inked with Northwestern: defensive end Andrew Leota out of Asheville, North Carolina has signed his letter of intent with the Wildcats.

Leota is his high school's all-time sacks leader, and held offers from Duke, North Carolina, Tennessee, South Carolina and Virginia Tech in addition to Northwestern. He is Northwestern's third-highest recruit, per 247Sports.com.

There's always room for relentless pass-rushers on a team, and that's what Leota appears to be. Along with Devin O'Rourke, and Earnest Brown IV and Samdup Miller in the class above him, Leota enters a stacked group of young defensive ends.
