The Northwestern Wildcats may have their new quarterback of the future in Maine South QB Matt Alviti, who recently committed to the school.

Maine South junior quarterback Matt Alviti has committed to play college football for the Northwestern Wildcats, according to Scott Powers of ESPN Chicago. Alviti has been the starter for Maine South, one of the strongest programs in Illinois, since he was a sophomore.

Powers says that Alviti also had scholarship offers from Illinois, Boston College, Indiana, Purdue and Notre Dame, but Northwestern ultimately won out. Maine South coach David Inserra mentioned that Alviti likely won't have too difficult of a time adjusting to the Wildcats' offensive schemes:

We actually stole from them, borrowed from them. I think it’ll be a natural fit for him. It’s geared toward his game to be a dual-threat type of guy. He can throw it on the run a lot.

The Wildcats currently have their own versatile quasi-quarterback in Kane Colter, so they've shown a willingness to get creative with impressive athletes.
