Northwestern has landed a commitment from a second four-star prospect in the 2020 recruiting class.
Saturday afternoon, four-star offensive lineman Peter Skoronski announced via Twitter his commitment to the Wildcats. The 6-foot-4, 275-pound offensive guard becomes the 10th player to give his verbal pledge to Northwestern, and the fourth lineman.
“I would like [to] thank my family, most important my parents, for all of their love, support, and guidance throughout this process,” Skoronski wrote. “With that being said, I am ecstatic to announce my verbal commitment to Northwestern University!!! Go Cats.”

Skoronski is a huge addition to Northwestern’s 2020 class, becoming the highest-rated commit in class currently. He’s listed as the No. 10 offensive guard in the cycle and a top 200 target nationally.
The addition of Skoronski is also a significant win for Pat Fitzgerald on the in-state recruiting front. Skoronski is a native of Park Ridge, Ill. and is ranked as the No. 4 player in the state.
Skoronski had offers from nine programs, including four other B1G schools. He picked Northwestern over Illinois, Iowa, Michigan, Penn State, Notre Dame and Stanford.
Northwestern now has 10 players committed to its 2020 class. The Wildcats rank 14th nationally and third in the B1G.
