Northwestern Football Lands USC Transfer Kyle Prater

Former USC WR Kyle Prater will continue his career at Northwestern.

With National Signing Day rapidly approaching, Northwestern may have landed its impact newcomer a few days early. Former USC WR Kyle Prater, who was one of the most highly-recruited players in the nation in 2010, made the decision to continue his playing career at Northwestern according to a release from the school:

"We’re extremely excited for Kyle to be able to come home to Chicago and join our Northwestern football family," head coach Pat Fitzgerald said in a statement. "He is a tremendous young man from a great family and is a product of a high school program we really respect in Proviso West. Kyle’s decision to attend Northwestern made sense for everyone involved and we’re looking forward to him contributing to our program on and off the field."

Prater was the No. 3 ranked player in the country in the 2010 recruiting class according to Rivals.com. Prater chose to attend USC over scholarship offers from schools like Alabama, Oklahoma and Michigan. However, a combination of injuries and the emergence of guys like Robert Woods and Marqise Lee, prevented Prater from ever finding a role in the USC offense.
