Gooden chose NU over offers from Iowa, Vanderbilt and Purdue, among others. The 6’1”, 221 pound recruit from Reynoldsburg, Ohio becomes the 19th member and third linebacker in Pat Fitzgerald’s 2016 class.
After losing out on top running back target Tre Bryant earlier this week, Northwestern rebounded by adding depth to its linebacking corps. Fellow three-star linebackers Jango Glackin and Paddy Fisher committed to NU last month.
