Northwestern added another commit to their 2018 recruiting class with the news that Miller Kopp has committed to the Wildcats.

Kopp is a four-star forward from Texas that is ranked by 247Sports as the 101st best recruit in the 2018 class and the 25th best small forward. Kopp visited Evanston this past weekend and chose the Wildcats over a number of teams including Butler and Texas A&M.
The 6’6” wing joins a strong 2018 recruiting class that also includes four-star power forward Pete Nance, three-star forward Ryan Young and three-star guard Jordan Lathon. As of now 247Sports lists their recruiting class as the seventh best class in the nation and third in the Big Ten, behind only Indiana and Michigan State.
“I’m going to be going to Northwestern. I built a really strong relationship with Chris Collins and I fell in love with the campus,” Kopp told Scout. “I’m definitely excited to be able to go to a program on the rise and be able to make some history.”
The addition of Kopp rounds out an impressive recruiting class, especially after a thin class in 2017. Kopp should bring some versatility to the program and could prove to be a viable option out on the wing for Chris Collins and the Wildcats.
Collins has been making waves in recent recruiting efforts in Evanston. With Northwestern finally making the NCAA Tournament this past season, the Wildcats are clearly on the rise.
