The visit from Northwestern coach Pat Fitzgerald and Wildcats assistant Adam Cushing was not so much a visit but a Q & A, Cleveland Heights (Ohio) Marcus McShepard said.

The senior cornerback liked what he heard, though, and the in-home visit extended Northwestern’s lead for the fast-rising defensive back.

“It was really smooth,” McShepard said. “I asked Coach Fitz how successful are football players that go into my major [mechanical engineering], and he said over the past seven years he’s been coaching he’s had a 100 percent graduation rate. I felt really relieved I don’t have to worry about that. They have tutors, assistants all over the place to provide help for me.”
