Chandler (Ariz.) Hamilton safety Devon Carrington already has a nice resume of scholarship offers from teams like Arizona, Arizona State, Cal, Stanford and Notre Dame. On Wednesday night, Carrington, who is 5-foot-11 and 176 pounds, added another high-level offer to his list.
"Assistant coach Mick McCall talked to Devon tonight and made him an offer to Northwest," Carrington's father, Darryl Carrington, said late Wednesday night.
After the talk about Northwestern's high standards for academics and an up-and-coming football program, Carrington came away very impressed with the offer from the Wildcats.
"This is Devon's first Big Ten offer, and he is very excite," Carrington said.
Carrington was already in the works to visit Notre Dame sometime this summer, but now a swing through Chicago to visit Evanston will now also happen.
Carrington stars at safety at Hamilton, but he broke into the lineup at cornerback.
"I'm a strong safety, but I like to come up and support the run," Carrington said. "I can also cover like a cornerback. I'd say the biggest area for improvement would be my covering and a little bit my speed. Right now I run about a 4.6 and I want to get that down to a 4.5."
