Milton Academy and Boston Bolts standout Henri Richter (Newton, Mass.) is heading to the Big Ten after verbally committing to Northwestern over the weekend.
A Class of 2022 player, Richter can play center back or defensive midfielder and projects as an important piece under new head coach Russell Payne.
Payne took over the Wildcats in early May after last leading Army West Point, and is now tasked with building upon what longtime head coach Tim Lenahan left behind. Last November, it was announced that the 2020-21 season would be Lenahan’s swansong following 20 years at the helm.
