Slater, originally from Sugar Land Texas, is a three-star offensive tackle according to 247 Sports, and also had offers from Illinois, Kansas, Wyoming, and Rice. 247 Sports also rates Slater as the 13th best guard in the Class of 2017
Slater becomes the fourth member of Northwestern’s Class of 2017 recruiting class, joining defensive tackle Sam Miller, linebacker Blake Gallagher, and Sam Gerak.
Perhaps the most interesting fact about Slater is the fact he’s nicknamed “IHop” because he, “serves up pancakes all night long.” IHop is a phenomenal nickname, one that will hopefully follow Slater to Evanston.
