The face behind the recruiting wave: How Kurt Anderson is changing the “trench” culture of Northwestern

Kurt Anderson has yet to coach a game while in charge of Northwestern’s offensive line, but he is already making his presence felt. Since he was officially named to the role in January, the results have been tangible.

Northwestern has added three offensive linemen recruits to its 2020 class since Anderson took command of the trenches, but these haven’t been just any commits.

Peter Skoronski, who committed Saturday, marks the top offensive line recruit in Northwestern history and the fifth highest-rated recruit of the Pat Fitzgerald. The four-star prospect chose Northwestern over Notre Dame, Michigan, Penn State and Stanford.
