Northwestern adds Ohio tight end to 2020 recruiting class
Northwestern’s success on the recruiting trail early in the 2020 cycle continues.
Friday night, the Wildcats secured a verbal pledge from tight end and Ohio native Marshall Lang. The 6-foot-4 prospect out of Cincinnati is now the 13th player to give his commitment to Pat Fitzgerald and company.
“Thank you to Coach Fitzgerald and Coach (Bob) Heffner for recruiting me to play for their program,” Lang wrote in his Twitter announcement. “With all of this, I am going to further my academic and athletic career, playing for Coach Fitzgerald and Coach Heffner at NORTHWESTERN UNIVERSITY.”

According to 247Sports, Lang is only a two-star prospect, but a product of St. Xavier high school has some strong upside. The Cincinnati area has been known to produce high-quality football players, and Lang could be the next.
Northwestern has been on a tear early in the recruiting process. Already, the Wildcats have locked up 13 hard commitments, the most in the B1G right now. Fitzgerald’s 2020 class ranks 19th nationally and second in the B1G, behind only Ohio State.
