Buckley Commits To Northwestern

Posted Jan 29, 2012

Northwestern has added on to its 2012 recruiting class. Forney (TX) High School product Stephen Buckley has given his commitment to Northwestern, according to a source.

Buckley, a 6-foot-1, 175-pounder, will play running back at Northwestern. He was also considering Washington State.

Buckley took an official visit in Evanston over the weekend, but was not planning on making a decision until Monday at the earliest. He was looking for a “comfortable” fit at Northwestern. Apparently, it was enough to sell him.

NU began its recruitment of Buckley in January. Northwestern’s Matt MacPherson and Marty Long each visited the two-way standout in recent weeks.

Northwestern now has 21 members in its 2012 recruiting class, with Ifeadi Odenigbo being the last addition before Buckley. NU also added ex-USC receiver Kyle Prater over the weekend.
