Nothing gets Northwestern coach Pat Fitzgerald going like a recruit committing.
On Wednesday, Richards junior Jarrell Williams got a taste of that when he phoned Fitzgerald to let him he know he was becoming Northwestern's first 2011 commitment.
"He was fired up," said Williams on Thursday. "That's his favorite thing to say: he's fired up. He told everyone in the office, and everyone was happy that I was jumping onboard as a Wildcat."
