Northwestern continues to piece together one of the best recruiting classes in school history. Last night, 3-star, offensive lineman,
, gave Wildcats head coach Randy Walker his verbal commitment. Mattes joins Thomas Bemenderfer and Ramon Diaz as Northwestern o-line verbal commitments.
“I committed to
because of what they have to offer on the football field and in the classroom.”
“I visited Northwestern and I loved the campus and I liked how close the team was with each other.
“In the end, I picked Northwestern over
because I just felt that Northwestern was the place for me.
"I feel like I can be a success on the football field and in the classroom at Northwestern.”
Mattes, a 6-foot-6, 275-pounder, from Plymouth (Pa.) West Wyoming Valley is a highly ranked football player but he’s more impressive in the classroom.
Mattes carries a perfect 4.2 grade point average in the classroom, taking advanced honor courses and he scored an impressive 1420 on his SAT.
Kurt is a four-year varsity starter. Northwestern is recruiting Mattes as an offensive lineman but he’s so athletic that he played tight end and defensive tackle the past two seasons at West Wyoming Valley.
“I had 50 tackles, 19 of those tackles were solo, 11 tackles for loss and 7 sacks this year,” Mattes said.
“I also had 15 receptions for 220 yards and 3 touchdowns as a tight end.
“As far as blocking is concerned, I graded out at about 85% on the year and I had 48 pancake blocks.”
Kurt Mattes is being recruited by Northwestern assistant coach
. This is a super get for the ‘Cats, who get an athletic, physical lineman, who can play in space.
Kurt Mattes has an older brother (Brian) playing football at Notre Dame.
