Northwestern's signing day class is complete with 21 recruits. And that doesn't include maybe the biggest get for coach Pat Fitzgerald, USC transfer Kyle Prater.

Here's the rundown of the newest Wildcats:

Terrance Brown S
Stephen Buckley RB
Adam DePietro OT
Chris Fitzpatrick LS
Traveon Henry S
Joseph Jones S
Malin Jones RB
Greg Kuhar DT
Dean Lowry DE
Connor Mahoney DT
Mike McHugh WR
Ifeadi Odenigbo OLB
Eric Olson OT
Ian Park OG
Kenton Playko OT
Jaylen Prater OLB
Andrew Scanlan WR
Jack Schwaba SB
Dan Vitale SB
Dwight White CB

The class is balanced, with 10 offensive and 10 defensive players, with one long snapper. Odenigbo, an ESPNU 150 prospect, is the headliner and the kind of defensive playmaker Northwestern has needed for some time.

“Obviously, we’re excited about this recruiting class,” Fitzgerald said. “There are some tremendous young men from great families and great high school programs who, we believe, fit all our needs and will help us take the next step in becoming a championship program."

The 21 signees comprises the largest recruiting class in Fitzgerald’s six years as head coach.
