Northwestern continues to wait for the NCAA to tell them whether or not transfer Kyle Prater will be allowed to play in 2012.
The NCAA is currently playing a large role in the success of the Northwestern passing game in 2012. Northwestern is still waiting to find out whether or not transfer wide receiver Kyle Prater will be eligible to play in the fall or will have to sit out the 2012 season.

Prater announced his transfer to Northwestern from USC in late January. After redshirting the 2010 season he caught only one pass for the Trojans in 2011. However, he did end up at USC as a highly touted recruit, as Prater was a five-star receiver out of high school and was considered the best wide receiver in the country by some scouting services.
Considering that both of Northwestern's leading receivers in 2011, Jeremy Ebert and Drake Dunsmore, have both moved on to the NFL, it needs as much talent as it can get at the position in 2012.
