Queiro Picks Northwestern
Bergen Catholic High (Oradell, N.J.) athlete Kyle Queiro found the mix of academics and football he wanted, he felt comfortable with the program, so Monday he committed to Northwestern. The 6-foot-2, 190-pound Queiro was ecstatic to get his recruitment over with, and will now concentrate on his senior season. "I'm heading to Northwestern," he said. "It was a combination of academics and football, and they're a program on the rise. They beat Nebraska last year and it's in a good location. It's only about 10 miles outside of a city, which is where I'm from right now." Queiro was being recruited by a number of programs to play receiver and safety. Northwestern is giving him the option of doing either, but right now he is leaning one way. "They said I could play either one but I think I'm going to play safety," Queiro said. Ironcally, Queiro told Scout.com during a 7-on-7 Saturday he was likely leaning toward playing defense. As a junior, he caught 10 passes for 145 yards, and made 44 tackles. "I think I want to play safety, but then I catch a touchdown pass and I think I want to play offense," he said. "I think will decide soon on which position I will play." Queiro will join former Bergen Catholic teammate Cameron Dickeron at Northwestern, and the two talked about playing together during Queiro's trip to campus. "I went there myself and I checked it out and spent some time there and talked to him a little bit," Queiro said. "It was just a place I could see myself being." Queiro added he bonded well with Northwestern coach Pat Fitzgerald, who was a driving force with his commitment. "He was an all-American linebacker there and he's a real cool guy," Queiro said. "It's a really good situation there."
