Teammates Kyle Quiero and Rich Queen recently verbally committed to continue playing football in college

For the first time in two years, the Class of 2013 can boast three rising seniors that will head off to Division 1 schools following their final season sporting red and gold. After the news that early this summer, fellow teammates Kyle Quiero and Rich Queen followed suite.

Queiro, considered a dual threat in the secondary and also spends time as a receiver was courted by 16 higher universities from Boston College and Duke to North Carolina and Rutgers before finally settling in on Northwestern.

The 6-foot-3, 190-pound prospect recorded 44 tackles and intercepted four passes during his junior season and this summer has been excelling in Bergen's 7-on-7 competitions, earning Defensive MVP honors as a corner back at the in mid-June.  

As one of 10 summer recruits to the Wildcats, Queiro brings a new level of versatility to Northwestern with his ability to switch between running routes as a wide receiver and competing as a safety.

Queen, a veteran starter in the red and gold front line as an offensive tackle chose to attend the University of Massachusetts, where his 6'4" frame should earn him plenty of starting time with the Minutemen.

He is the fifth commit in the 2013 class for the Minutemen, joining QB Todd Stafford, DL Cole Ormsby and Sha-ki Holines, and LB/RB Steven Casali. He turned down offers from Central Michigan, Liberty and Rutgers to head to UMass.
