  Northwestern offensive tackle Rashawn Slater is opting out of the 2020 season and will declare for the 2021 NFL draft. In light of the Big Ten postponing its football season to the spring, Slater chose to forgo his senior season after discussing the matter with coach Pat Fitzgerald, according to Pete Thamel of Yahoo Sports. Slater officially announced his decision Thursday afternoon on social media and thanked his coaches and teammates. "I'm so glad I found my home at Northwestern and will always cherish my time here and the relationships I've been blessed to be part of that I know will carry on," Slater said. "My experience was everything I dreamed of and more. I'm a Wildcat for life." After starting 37 games for the Wildcats at both left and right tackle, Slater leaves Evanston as one of the best offensive lineman in program history. - Daily Northwestern

  Wrigley Field won't host the scheduled Nov. 7 football game between Northwestern and Wisconsin because of COVID-19 concerns. The decision was announced Wednesday after the schools consulted with the Chicago Cubs, state and local authorities and the Big Ten "in consideration of the myriad challenges presented by the coronavirus pandemic," Northwestern said in a statement. A team spokesman said it's "safe to assume" the game would take place at Northwestern's Ryan Field instead, although uncertainty about the college football season looms. Cancellations of some games have been announced, and players at several universities have tested positive for COVID-19. - Chicago Tribune

  05/29/20 - Peyton RamseyrSr/2021, Northwestern, 6-1, 220 (DS#28 QB) + More +

  After announcing his transfer to Northwestern in March, Ramsey sent a text to every player on the offensive side of the ball to introduce himself. Since then, he has worked out in Cincinnati, including sessions with junior quarterback Andrew Marty and junior tight end Trey Pugh. Every Thursday, Ramsey participates in Zoom meetings led by the quarterbacks. The players go over signals and break into position groups, but they also catch up with each other. "(Relationships) have been the hardest part of all this," Ramsey said. "Not learning the playbook or anything like that."

The quarterback still has 99 days before Northwestern's scheduled start to the 2020 season and the season opener at Michigan State. He still has time to acclimate himself to the new environment, but Ramsey transferred to Northwestern intending to start from the jump. A three-year starter at Indiana, Ramsey threw for 2,454 yards last season, completing 68 percent of his passes. He was named honorable mention on the postseason all-Big Ten team. He brings a track record of success to a Northwestern team whose quarterbacks threw for just 1,404 yards and six touchdowns combined last season. "He fits Northwestern's profile," Bajakian said. "He's tough, smart, athletic, and he's played a lot of football and won a lot of football games. (He) did a good job at Indiana, had been the starter for all or parts of three seasons, so he's a guy that can that can come in here and compete right away and make an immediate impact." - The Daily Northwestern

  NU has a comically crowded QB room, with Indiana transfer Peyton Ramsey a godsend and the enormous favorite to start. Ramsey put up terrific numbers in 32 games as a Hoosier, improving his completion percentage each season from 65.4 to 66 to 68. He's athletic and has terrific leadership qualities. Contrast that with the group of NU quarterbacks who were absolutely abysmal last season, the worst in the nation. Hunter Johnson will push Ramsey if he bounces back from a trying season during which his mother was treated for breast cancer. Andrew Marty is NU's Tim Tebow, a powerful, gutsy, run-first QB who ran through Illinois (111 yards) in the season finale. TJ Green, who beat out Johnson and Smith before suffering a season-ending foot surgery, will return for a sixth season. - Chicago Tribune

  04/05/20 - John RaineSr/2021, Northwestern, 6-1, 225 (DS#10 FB) + More +

  FAU's tight end contingent has taken another big loss. John Raine announced on social media that he's entered the transfer portal as a graduate transfer. He recorded 38 receptions for 343 yards and six touchdowns last year en route to the Owls winning the 2019 Conference USA title and 2019 Boca Raton Bowl. "I am thankful for everything, FAU," Raine tweeted on Saturday. "Excited for the next chapter!"

Raine's departure leaves a significant hole in FAU's tight end unit for the 2020 season with the Owls having zero career receptions returning at the position next year. Harrison Bryant, who became the first FAU football player in program history to be a unanimous All-American after leading all FBS tight ends in receptions (65) and yards (1,004), while scoring seven touchdowns last year, used his final season of eligibility in 2019 and has his sights set on the NFL. The Owls have three tight ends on their official roster and received a commitment from one in February that should be able to contribute immediately. Redshirt junior Logan Peterson, and redshirt freshmen Ryan Cameron and Rahmod Smith are expected to return to FAU next season. - Sun-Sentinel

  Northwestern wasn't the only team that contacted Ramsey the day he entered the transfer portal. Former Michigan State head coach Mark Dantonio called Doug Ramsey the week before Dantonio retired. Ramsey also heard from several other Big Ten schools, multiple ACC schools and Washington. But Northwestern left a great first impression. In early February, Bajakian and wide receivers coach Dennis Springer visited Ramsey in Bloomington, Indiana. "Honestly, that was one of the main reasons that I felt so strongly about them and wanted to visit them before I went anywhere else," Ramsey said. Other college football coaches visited Ramsey in Bloomington. But Ramsey scheduled his first visit to Northwestern on March 7, and it wound up being his only visit. - The Daily Northwestern

  Northwestern has another quarterback joining the competition to revive a passing game that was the nation's worst in 2019. Peyton Ramsey, who played in 32 games for Indiana with 23 starts over the last three seasons, announced Monday on Twitter that he is transferring to Northwestern. As a graduate transfer, Ramsey will be eligible to play this fall. He has one season of eligibility remaining. - The Chicago Tribune

  03/05/20 - Hunter JohnsonrJr/2022, Northwestern, 6-1, 215 (DS#12 QB) + More +

  Hunter Johnson doesn't want to be afraid to make mistakes anymore. After having a 2019 season to forget at Northwestern, the quarterback said he isn't worried about all of the game-ending injuries, the losses and the interceptions that defined his sophomore campaign. "There's good years and bad years," Johnson said. "I'm just moving on, everything about it. There's obviously some things I'm going to take from it, but you can't move forward looking back. I'm not looking back." New offensive coordinator Mike Bajakian is helping Johnson turn the page. After the highly-touted transfer from Clemson finished last season with just one touchdown and four interceptions in six games, Bajakian had a simple message for Johnson when he was hired to coach the Wildcats. Bajakian wants Johnson to be more decisive, even if he's wrong. "If I think I know the answer, (Bajakian) wants me to yell it out," Johnson said. "Be confident, and if you're wrong, then he'll let you know. But he'd rather us go for it and be wrong than just go through the motions."

Coach Pat Fitzgerald admitted he needs to do a better job helping Johnson be more confident during the season. Johnson felt pressure all last year as the assumed replacement to Clayton Thorson, the winningest quarterback in NU history. The Indiana native left all three of his final games of the 2019 season with an injury. His sophomore season ended with a 10-yard sack against No. 10 Minnesota in November, and Johnson finished the year with a 46.3 completion percentage. "What comes with that locomotive is the hype," Fitzgerald said. "It's unrealistic to expect a lot right away because it's new relationships, a new offense, new school. It's a lot of stuff that goes on." Heading into his third year with the program, Johnson knows he needs to play better to claim the starting spot in September. - The Daily Northwestern

  01/27/20 - Peyton RamseyrSr/2021, Northwestern, 6-1, 220 (DS#28 QB) + More +

  Indiana quarterback Peyton Ramsey has entered his name in the transfer portal, a source confirmed Monday. This is a significant but not unexpected development for the Hoosiers’ quarterback room. Ramsey, the redshirt junior, lost his starting job to redshirt freshman Michael Penix Jr. in the preseason, though he proved to be an invaluable backup throughout the 2019 season and ended up totaling 2,454 yards and 13 touchdowns passing in relief. If he had stayed at IU for the 2020 season, Ramsey could have very well found himself backing up Penix. Instead, the 6-foot-2, 216-pounder can search for a situation where he is more likely to be the starter in his final collegiate season.

Ramsey’s spectacular play in 2019 just adds to a sense of loss. Despite multiple injuries to Penix, the Hoosiers were able to finish the season with the No. 2 pass offense in the Big Ten. Ramsey’s production was especially vital in road wins at Maryland and Nebraska, as well as the season finale at Purdue where he scored the game-winning touchdown in double overtime. On the year, the Hoosiers’ backup surpassed 300 yards passing three times, including a career-high 371 yards at Penn State. Along with his passing production, he was also a daring scrambler, amassing 252 yards and seven touchdowns on the ground. - Indy Star

  2019 ALL-CONFERENCE USA HONORABLE MENTION (COACHES): TE John Raine, Sr., Florida Atlantic,...Florida Atlantic University football earned five First Team All-Conference USA honors, tied for the most for any team on offense and defense, added a Second Team recognition, and had 10 players pick up 11 honorable mention nods as well. Those six honorees join honorable mention recognition for Deangelo Antoine at both wide receiver and kick returner, alongside fellow offensive members in left guard Desmond Noel and tight end John Raine. Defensive tackle Ray Ellis and defensive end Tim Bonner, linebacker Rashad Smith, and a trio of defensive backs - safety Zyon Gilbert and corners James Pierre and Chris Tooley - were also recognized, as was long snapper Jonathan Sullivan. - Florida Atlantic Football

  2019 ALL-MID-AMERICAN CONFERENCE THIRD TEAM (COACHES): Punter - Derek Adams, Kent State,...Adams returned to form in 2019 after an injury cost him most of the 2018 season. His 43.3 yards per punt ranks second in the conference and is right in line with his 2017 total of 43.6 yards per kick. Adams had a long of 76 yards this year and boomed 11 punts over 50 yards. Perhaps most impressively, he had 19 punts fair caught and Kent State ranks 10th in the nation in allowing just 2.7 yards per punt return this season. - Kent State Football
