Northwestern was in a recruiting battle for one of the top 50 cornerbacks in the 2020 class with several programs, but the Wildcats came out on top.

On Saturday, three-star cornerback Garnett Hollis made his decision to commit to Northwestern, choosing the Wildcats over offers from Purdue, Vanderbilt, Indiana, Arkansas and severl others. According to 247Sports, Hollis most notably was considering the Wildcats, Boilermakers and Commodores.

Hollis made his announcement via a Twitter post.

“After much prayer and consulting with my family, I’ve decided to COMMIT TO NORTHWESTERN UNIVERSITY,” Hollis wrote. “Northwestern was a perfect fit for me based off the academic standards and the opportunity to compete at a high level. Lastly, I felt that Northwestern gave me the best opportunity to succeed on the football field and in life after football.”

Hollis is a native of Franklin, Tennessee and is ranked as the No. 20 player from his home state. He’s listed as the No. 41 player at the cornerback position and he also cracks the top 600 prospects in the 2020 class.

Northwestern has produced some talented players out of the secondary in recent years, including Ibraheim Campbell and Godwin Igwebuike, among others. Hollis has the potential to make a quick impact early in his career with the Wildcats.

With the commitment from Hollis, Northwestern has the 23rd ranked recruiting class nationally and sits at No. 4 in the B1G. He’s the 14th player in the 2020 cycle to give a verbal pledge to the Wildcats.
