Offer No. 1 has come in for 5-foot-8, 160-pound running back Rob Hollomon. The Philadelphia (Pa.) West Catholic prospect landed his first offer from the Big Ten and is gaining interest from a number of other schools.
"Northwestern offered me last week," he said. "I'm excited about it and really proud of myself. That pushes me even harder to get more schools to like me."
Hollomon discussed his offer a bit more.

"The education there is very good," he said. "They have one of the highest graduation rates in the country. That sticks out a lot. They are also in the Big Ten and play against powerhouse schools like Ohio State."
Northwestern is the only offer, but the Keystone State prospect is getting looks from other programs.
"Rutgers, Maryland, Temple, Pittsburgh, Georgia, Georgia Tech and Clemson are showing interest," he said. "I'm also hearing from Akron, Connecticut and Syracuse.
"I personally really like Georgia. They are in a good conference and they play aggressively."
The Philadelphia prospect went on to mention what he wants in a school.
"I want a school with a good education. I want to graduate with a degree and masters," he said. "I'm looking to study business. I want to be an entrepreneur. I also want a godo football program and I'd like to have fun."
Hollomon plans to attend two or three camps this summer.
Last season he posted nearly 1,500-yards of offense and 22 touchdowns on the year.
"I was a big threat, a big player for my team," he said. "They used me in the slot and other areas.
"I still need to improve in every aspect of my game. I want to get stronger so I can be a big-time running back."
Hollomon is also a basketball prospect.
"I was third team all-Catholic," he said. "A few schools are looking at me there. Right now football is my main sport, but if I got the chance I would try to do both."
