Cornerback Ethan Bonner from The Woodlands, TX has become the final commit of a whirlwind spring recruiting cycle for Northwestern football.
Bonner’s commitment comes just a few hours after the Wildcats wrapped up their final practice of the spring. He is not rated by any recruiting services.
Among Power 5 teams, Bonner held offers from Iowa State and Washington State in addition to Northwestern. He also had offers from Louisiana Tech, Tulsa, UTSA, Dartmouth, Princeton and Yale.
Bonner’s hudl tape shows a speedy corner with good coverage skills and hands. At 0:55, watch him turn on the jets to chase down a running back and make a touchdown-saving tackle. Unsurprisingly, the 6-foot-1, 170 pound Bonner also ran track in high school.
Bonner is the 12th commit of the 2018 class and the fourth from the state of Texas, as Northwestern has become Texas’ B1G team in addition to Chicago’s B1G team.
Fitzgerald’ class would seem to be nearing two-thirds of the way done. The only positions that don’t have any 2018 commits yet are running back, defensive tackle and safety.
