Northwestern banned from recruiting at Michigan high school after pulling scholarship offer from player
When 2019 WR Damari Roberson tore his ACL for the second time in nine months, it had a big effect on his recruiting.
The injury caused Northwestern to rescind a scholarship offer for Roberson, who favored the Wildcats over his other offers.
Now, according to Mona Shores High School coach Matt Koziak, Northwestern is no longer allowed to recruit his players (via MLive.com):
“Northwestern is no longer allowed in our building. They’re not allowed, at least to me, to recruit our kids. They are no longer welcome in our building,” he said.
Fortunately, not all is lost for Roberson. Western Michigan honored his scholarship offer, and he committed to the Broncos back in June.
This won’t be a good look for the Wildcats on the recruiting trails, but Northwestern is far from the first school to do questionable things when recruiting new players.
