Northwestern finally made it to the NCAA Tournament this past spring for the first time in the teams history. Now Chris Collins and the Wildcats are looking to continue building off of their recent success. When it comes to Northwestern and their 2018 recruiting class, things have been looking up so far for Collins and his team.

This past June the Wildcats added a pair of four-star recruits in guard Jordan Lathon and forward Pete Nance. Now Northwestern has added another solid recruit with the addition of Ryan Young, a 6’10” center from Pennsylvania.

Young is another win for the Wildcats, with the center choosing Northwestern over Maryland, who recently offered. A laundry list of other teams, including Temple, Richmond, George Washington and Saint Joseph’s had also offered previously.

The addition of Young means the Wildcats will likely only have one more spot for their 2018 recruiting class. Either way, Northwestern already had a pair of quality recruits and now adds some size with the 6’10” center.

Inside NU recently posted a scouting report of Young, breaking down the center and what he should bring to Northwestern. We also recently took a look at Northwestern’s 2018 recruiting efforts.
