Three-star defensive end commits to Northwestern

Northwestern got its 12th commit of the 2016 class Friday morning, as three-star defensive end Tommy Carnifax picked the Wildcats over offers Cincinnati, Iowa, Kentucky, Maryland, Purdue and Wisconsin, among others.

Carnifax ranks 813th in the country in 247Sports’ national composite ranking and 38th in the nation among strong-side defensive ends.

The three-star recruit is the second defensive lineman in NU’s class of 2016 after defensive tackle Alex Miller committed to the Wildcats earlier this week. The recruiting period is nowhere near complete, but Northwestern’s 2016 class now ranks 28th in the country on 247Sports.
