Hometown: St. Paul, Minnesota
Date: Oct. 6, 2017
The skinny: Alston pledged to the previous staff but has stayed on board. The long, athletic edge player has been quiet throughout the final months. NU has returning talent at outside linebacker with Luke Gifford, Collin Miller and more, but it will be interesting to see if Alston can use his athleticism to push for early time.
Offers of note: Air Force, Iowa State, Utah, Wisconsin.
Lead recruiter: Unkown. (Trent Bray).
