07:16 AM ET 05.15 | After Justin Jackson hung up the phone Tuesday and breathed a sigh of relief, Pat Fitzgerald could be forgiven for a burst of emotion, too. Jackson -- the Gatorade Player of the Year for Illinois in 2012 -- will join Wheaton North quarterback Clayton Thorson in Evanston. Both are four-star prospects, according to Rivals.com. Jackson ran for 2,612 yards and 35 touchdowns on 421 carries and helped Glenbard North advance to the Class 8A state championship game. ... This is shaping up to be the best recruiting class in school history, surging to 15th in the country in 247's composite rankings. Jackson is the second running back to pledge to the Wildcats, joining Auston Anderson of Plano, Texas, who committed last week.

Pat Fitzgerald is one of the best coaches in CFB. Remember when Nothwestern lost 34 games in a row? Now they are typically bowl eligible and contend for the division title. If anyone needs proof that mediocre programs can become respectable, they need only look at Northwestern.

UFM won't be overlooking the Nerds. Possible trap game for tOSU when they visit Evanston 10/5.

Gari & Sparty, I agree 100%. Keep sports to sports. Make sure you say/feel the same when Peter King starts to preach his liberal ideology.

Well, not all SI writers belong to FN. I'll bet few have an account. Duping a SI writer... I wonder if that would get you a timeout? 86ed even?
