Georgia athlete Kyric McGowan has verbally committed to Northwestern, he announced on Twitter on Wednesday.
McGowan chose the Wildcats over Duke, Mississippi State, Vanderbilt, Cincinnati and a whole slew of other schools. He had 23 total offers, many of them FCS. He’s a 3-star prospect according to 247Sports and the No. 83 running back in the country.
But according to Rivals, he’s coming to Northwestern as a slot receiver.

The Wildcats won 10 games last season under coach Pat Fitzgerald.
