Northwestern’s Pinstripe Bowl-winning team just received a much-needed experience boost in the trenches with a graduate transfer.
Trey Klock, an offensive lineman and starter for Georgia Tech at left tackle in the latter portions of the 2016 season, will transfer to Northwestern to pursue his master’s degree. He has two years of eligibility remaining.

The Wildcats, who return all but one starter on its offensive line from last season, gain some flexibility by landing Klock. With just one senior on his line next season in starting center Brad North, Northwestern coach Pat Fitzgerald gets some added FBS talent and experience, as well as depth.
Klock, a Hummelstown, Pa., native, was recruited as a tight end and received scholarship offers from Rutgers and Illinois before ultimately picking Georgia Tech. He switched from tight end to offensive line after battling injuries.
