So why should Wildcat supporters care? Because two of Northwestern's top recruits for 2014 will be facing each other that night: running back Justin Jackson of Glenbard North (who just committed) and quarterback Clayton Thorson of Wheaton North. I wouldn't wait that long to see these two talented young athletes, but you could kill two birds with one stone that night.
Kudos to Wildcat coach Pat Fitzgerald! According to the Trib:
This is shaping up to be the best recruiting class in school history,
surging to 15th in the country in 247Sports.com's composite rankings.
