Chicago (Ill.) Phillips junior safety prospect Fabian McCray (6-foot-2, 180 pounds) and the Wildcats are off to a great start in 2017. McCray was also able to make a game day visit last Saturday to Northwestern and talks about his impressions from Evanston here.

"I was able to go visit Northwestern and watch the game on Saturday against Bowling Green," McCray said. "Northwestern has been in touch along with a few other schools and they invited me to come watch the game."

McCray, who has been playing both receiver and defensive back for the Wildcats (4-0) and head coach Troy McAllister gave us his impressions from Northwestern.

"I had a good visit to Northwestern and I really liked the facilities. This was my first recruit visit. I had been on campus once or twice before but this time I was able to get to meet the coaches and learn more about the school and the team. I was able to get down on the field for warmups before the game then we sat in the stands and watched the game. I was able to talk to the DB coach (Jerry Brown) along with the recruiting coach (Chris Bowers). They said that they want me to come back and visit them again. They also asked me to stay in touch with them this season."

Has McCray drawn any interest from other schools since September 1st?

"Besides Northwestern I've also been in touch with the coaches from Penn State, Cincinnati and Minnesota so far. All of those schools want me to come visit them soon. I'm going to visit Cincinnati on October 7th when they play Central Florida. Minnesota was also in school today (Monday) and they mentioned going up for a game this season."

McCray is excited for the remainder of his junior season.

"This year seems different from last year. Everybody is focused on doing their job and we have a lot of leadership this year. I'm just a junior but I also played last year so I'm also trying to become more of a leader and help the other guys out whenever I can."
