The last two days have provided a significant boost for Chris Collins and Northwestern.

Robbie Beran, a top-100 forward from Virginia, became the second commit to the Wildcats in as many days Monday as he pledged to the ‘Cats with a social media announcement.

The 2019 prospect is a 6-foot-9 forward who picked Collins’ program over other finalists Georgia Tech and Virginia Tech. He also took visits to Boston College and Kansas State. His commitment comes just a day after three-star center Jared Jones of Georgia pledged to Northwestern. Guard Daniel Buie of Maine committed to the Wildcats in September as well.

“It was the right fit for him,” his high school coach Del Harris told the Richmond Times-Dispatch. “He believes in what they are building.”

The Wildcats slipped to 15-17 last season in Collins’ fifth year at the helm after they made the NCAA tournament for the first time in school history in 2017.
