Donnie Gray becomes first commit in NU class of 2021

The high school wide receiver is rated as a three-star and has great athleticism.


After securing its best recruiting class of all time, Pat Fitzgerald and co. have gotten their first player in the class of ‘21. Donnie Gray, an athlete from New Haven, announced on Twitter that he would be attending Northwestern.

The six-foot commit excelled at wide receiver and in the return game throughout high school thus far, and his play earned him offers from Yale, Brown, Connecticut and Temple, among others.

It isn’t the most notable recruit for Northwestern, as Gray is a three-star with a .81 247Sports composite, but it is an important pickup to get the ball rolling on Northwestern’s next class. Each Big Ten school outside of Michigan State had already snagged one or more players before today.
