  01/21/21 - Ryan HilinskiSo/2023, Northwestern, 6-2, 225 (DS#999 QB) + More +

  Former South Carolina quarterback Ryan Hilinski announced Tuesday he is transferring to Northwestern. He is expected to become the Wildcats starter after Peyton Ramsey, who transferred in last season from Indiana, announced after the season he won't return. Hilinski will have three more years of eligibility as the NCAA is not counting the 2020 season against athletes' eligibility clocks. Hilinski started 11 games for South Carolina as a freshman in 2019, throwing for 2,357 yards with 11 touchdowns and five interceptions. - Chicago Tribune

  Former Kansas receiver Stephon Robinson Jr., who was one of the breakout performers for the Kansas football program in 2019, will next be catching passes in the Big Ten. Robinson, one of the many KU seniors from the 2020 roster who opted to enter the transfer portal and play a bonus season elsewhere, announced Friday afternoon that he had committed to Northwestern. Robinson began his KU career as a junior college transfer in the 2018 signing class under former head coach David Beaty. However, he didn't emerge as a big-play threat until Miles and receivers coach Emmett Jones arrived. - Lawrence Journal World

  Northwestern's defense sent coordinator Mike Hankwitz into retirement as a winner.

Ramsey, a graduate transfer, totaled 291 yards passing and 50 yards rushing for Northwestern (7-2), which won its fourth straight bowl game. Ramaud Chiaokhiao-Brown, John Raine and Riley Lees had touchdown catches for the Wildcats, who bounced back from an ugly loss to Ohio State on Dec. 19 in the Big Ten championship game. It was the final game for the 73-year-old Hankwitz, who is retiring after a 51-year coaching career that included 400 victories at nine schools. He was the defensive coordinator for Colorado's 1990 national championship team and spent the last 13 seasons as Northwestern's coordinator. - AP College Football
