NU lands Igwebuike

Godwin Igwebuike became the 17th member of Northwestern's Class of 2013 when he committed to the Wildcats on Thursday.

"Commited to Northwestern," tweeted Igwebuike. "Thank God for the opportunity to play football and get an awesome degree."

The three-star prospect from Pickerington (Ohio) North is listed in the Rivals database as a running back, but he will most likely play cornerback for the Wildcats.

The 5-foot-11, 185-pounder chose Northwestern over more than a dozen offers, including Illinois, Indiana, Minnesota, Nebraska, NC State, Pittsburgh, Wake Forest and Wisconsin.

Last season, Igwebuike rushed for 1,050 yards and scored 14 touchdowns for Pickerington North, averaging a whopping nine yards per carry. He also picked off six passes as a safety and cornerback.

Igwebuike is the third cornerback in the class, joining Matt Harris and Keith Watkins. He is also the fourth Ohioan in the group. is your source for: College Football | Football Recruiting | College Basketball | Basketball Recruiting | College Baseball | High School | College Merchandise
