Since Northwestern first began showing interest in Marcus McShepard (Cleveland Heights, Ohio/Cleveland Heights) last spring, the Wildcats were always the team to beat for the senior cornerback.

Now, Northwestern will be his future team. McShepard committed to Northwestern while on an official visit with the Wildcats on Sunday, he told ESPN.com in a text message.

McShepard picked up the offer from the Wildcats in November and quickly set up an official visit. He said last week a commitment would likely come during his visit.
