Zurbrugg is a significant addition for Northwestern. He’s the No. 65 quarterback in the country for the class of 2024, per 247Sports Composite rankings. He’s also the No. 44 player from the state of Ohio.
He attends Alliance High School in Alliance, Ohio. He’s listed at 6-foot-4, 185 pounds.
Zurbrugg initially received an offer from Northwestern back on June 16, two days prior to committing to Syracuse. It’s not yet clear what led to Zurbrugg’s swift decommitment decision.
Northwestern now has 12 prospects committed in the class of 2024. Zurbrugg is the only quarterback and the only Ohio native in the class so far. The group sits at No. 46 nationally, according to 247Sports Composite rankings.
