Northwestern continues to build its already impressive trenches, as offensive lineman Nick Herzog announced at 10:00 am CT Thursday that he has committed to the ‘Cats as a member of the class of 2022.
The three-star offensive lineman from Blue Valley, Kansas, also received offers from Iowa, Stanford, Kansas and Kansas State, ultimately choosing the ‘Cats over all of them.
Herzog is now the fourth member of Northwestern’s 2022 recruiting class along with three-star offensive lineman Danny McGuire, three-star tight end Chris Petrucci and four-star wide receiver Reggie Fleurima, according to 247 Sports. Herzog is the first of the four ‘22 commits to come from outside the state of Illinois, and 247 currently has Northwestern’s ‘22 class ranked 53rd nationally and 11th in the Big Ten.
Like John Wick, @Nick_Herzog79 is a man of focus, intensity, & sheer will.— Joseph Potts (@TopSpeedLLC) June 1, 2021
So when multiple SEC & BIG 10 schools asked him about playing center @ the next level he dove in headfirst - even going so far as to practice snapping during his rest time between exercises. pic.twitter.com/VPpx43LGBg
