08/14/2013 - OTHER NORTHWESTERN PROSPECTS WORTH WATCHING: WR Kyle Prater (6-4, 215, 4.58)*...An Illinois-native, Prater was a blue-chip recruit out of high school and took his talents to the west coast, enrolling at Southern Cal. But despite the hype he lasted only two seasons with the Trojans before transferring closer to home and the Wildcats. Prater caught just 10 passes last season, but he has the frame, athleticism and toughness to emerge as a reliable target for Northwestern in 2013. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
