Maine South's Alviti commits to NU
Maine South junior quarterback Matt Alviti has committed to Northwestern.
Alviti, a 6-foot, 185-pound dual-threat quarterback, chose the Wildcats over Boston College, Indiana, Michigan State, Notre Dame and Purdue. He committed to Northwestern after its spring game on Saturday.
Alviti completed 150-of-230 passes for 2,210 yards, 29 touchdowns and seven interceptions as a junior. He also rushed for 609 yards and 12 touchdowns.
“I just think it was a large combination of things for him,” Maine South coach David Inserra said of Alviti’s commitment. “It’s a well-educated decision on his part. He took his time. He did it right. He measured it against the other schools in the mix. I think in the end it was the offense they run, their coaches and how can you argue with that education.”
Inserra thought Alviti shouldn’t have a difficult time adjusting to Northwestern’s spread offense because Maine South runs something similar. Alviti has started since his sophomore year in Inserra’s offense.
“We actually stole from them, borrowed from them,” Inserra said. “I think it’ll be a natural fit for him. It’s geared toward his game to be a dual-threat type of guy. He can throw it on the run a lot.
“I’m really excited for Matt and his family and excited for the Wildcats. I think it’s a great fit for both.”
Northwestern now has one Class of 2013 commitment.
