    NIU started off the season with a pair of huge in-state commits, and one big out of stater to boot. Their first commit, a four star wide receiver recruit, hails form Mundelein, Illinois and was the number one target for Husky coaches as soon as the recruiting season kicked off. 6'3 Bryan Smith gave his committment over the weekend, fullfilling a life long dream of playing for Northern Illinois.

    "Ever since I have been playing football I have wanted to play here. My Dad played here when he was in school, so it is great being able to follow his footsteps."

    Bryan's father, Ben Smith, played defensive back for Northern Illinois a few years ago. Bryan figures to maybe break into the rotation early, and could fill the void left after senior Martel Moore graduates- as a vertical threat will be needed. Junior Anthony Johnson is showing promise in that regard, but regardless Bryan should find a spot early in his career.

    Next up is another home grown product, 6'5 270 lb defensive end Matt Parrish. Matt, a three star recruit, is a tremendous athlete for his size, and many recruiting services have called him a diamond in the rough. He has a solid mix of pass rushing moves, but also plays the run well (partially due to his massive figure). Matt figures to redshirt and possible slim down while polishing his technique before hitting the field.

    Finally, 3 star strong safety Antwan Jordan completed the early signees and is a welcomed addition. He should compete right away for playing time, and is a smart player who loves to come up and mix it up in the run game. At 6'3 207 he is already a big fella, and the Sioux City native could make an immediate impact come next season.

    A great start for the NIU recruiting season, no doubt!


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------


    P.s. guys- I would like us to keep up with recruiting better. I wasn't very good about it either at the end of last season, but lets try to stay consistent and post something when you sign someone. Even if it is a short 3-4 sentences, anything works. Thanks

    Western Michigan signs 2 in the first two weeks:

    :3stars:#63 DT Jay Brown 6'1 259 lbs B- Strength, C Power Moves

    :3stars:WR Ricky Hill 6'1 168 B- Speed, B+ ACC

    Jay will be seeing a redshirt. The two starting DT's will be coming back and there will be no need for him to waste a year of eligibility only seeing 10-20 plays on the year.

    Ricky will play next year, and most likely see significant time on the field. The Wide Receiving core will only graduate 2, but there is no real standout wideout. Ricky has as good of chance as anyone on the current roster to win a starting job next season.

    Miami Gets First Commit!

    The Redhawks did not have to go far to get there first recruit of the season. Right down the road right outside of Columbus, OH they found :3stars:SS Dorsey Scott in Lincoln Village. The 6'0"/190lb Safety will definitely be redshirted his freshman since two guys will be well ahead of him on the depth chart. The coaching staff is comparing him to Senior SS Pat Hinkel. He has solid tackling abilities and his coverage skills are good. With a little work and leadership from Hinkel, Scott should see the field his second year on campus.

    FB Comes to Oxford

    :1stars:FB George Scruggs was not even on Miami(OH)'s radar, since they recruited two last year, but with the lack of talent from the guys they thought could play that position they went out and got another one. Rumors have it the backup FB Martin Kirk will likely transfer after this year. Scruggs 6'0/252lbs and will be bringing good blocking skill set and is not afraid to handle the rock. (blah, blah FB dive is banned just saying that for story purposes)

    I've been using it for a while now. I had been using the Stanford PB but the Tennessee PB offers more shotgun formations which I usually lean on if I fall behind. I like it because it has formations in all four of the ace/I/strong/weak formations and still has plenty of shotgun looks.

    ATH Michael Flanagan - He posses decent speed and great cover skills, but his tackling form needs some work. He can bring the wood, but too often guys slip away from him. He will probably start at the whip LB position in a couple of seasons.

    QB Nate Rankin - He has decent throw power, but his accuracy needs a bit of fine tuning. He is more of a pure pocket passer, slower than some of the offensive linemen. Mostly added for depth.

    FS Sean Brown (JUCO) - He stands at 6'2", and can quickly accelerate around the field and stop on a dime. He has is a solid tackler, and works great in zone coverage. He is not quite fast enough for man coverage. He will probably get the start after a redshirt year.

    Miami(OH) nabs six more!

    After the 21-14 victory over the Kentucky Wildcats, six recruits declared they would be coming to Oxford,OH next fall. Two offensive and four defensive players look to hopefully make an impact on the squad next year.

    Offense:
    :3stars:QB Brian Poland (6'1"/205)- Kentucky was in the running until he got to see what the Redhawks were all about. As he watched QB Zac Dysert take the team on his back he knew he could be the next leader for the Redhawks. Poland has already been compared to Dysert, and NFL Superstar Ben Roethlisberger. He has a good arm (B/B-; Throw Power/Throw Accuracy) and has the acceleration to run the load option from time to time. Brian Poland will be redshirted and learn from QB Austin Boucher.

    :3stars:RB Leon Lyles (5'11"/190)- Lyles is a bruiser just like Erik Finklea but he doesn't compare to the Miami(OH) superstar. The powerback will start at the end of the depth chart and will hopefully get a chance to learn from Finklea (pending on if he goes pro). He will suit as a quality backup in the years to come but you never know who might go down with an injury. RB Savon Huggins will be the starter once Finklea leaves so that only leaves about a year or two of real playing time for Lyles. Even with a smaller frame for the type of RB he is, his speed is great (B+), acceleration and agility are good (B-) and the big man has a good juke move (B-).

    Defense:
    :3stars:ATH Kris Lawson (6'2"/195)- Lawson will be a very versatile player in the Miami(OH) defense. The coaching staff really does not know where to put him in the secondary. Everything is leaning towards the Safety position but depending on if they can get a CB or not he may play there a season or two. His height gives him a great advantage against opposing WRs. Lawson will be redshirted if he goes to the Safety position but if he winds up at CB look for him on the field.

    :3stars:MLB Kyle Roland (5'10"/235)- Kyle brings something special to the Redhawks and something that the LBs here struggle with, stopping the run. The coaching staff brings in Roland as one of their guys to stop those scatbacks. All year they have been absolutely torched by big runs and The MLB from Napoleon, OH looks to fix it. Speed has been the big problem in trying to stop the scatbacks but being able to recognize the play right away and hit the hole will prevent the big gains. His play recognition is decent (C-). speed and acceleration are there (B/B-), and his block shedding and fitness moves (C+/B-) will allow him to get in the back field quicker. Roland will sit and prepare to get significant playing time in 2014.

    :3stars:MLB Jason Anderson (6'0"/246)- When you bring in a run stopper, you also need to bring in a coverage guy to balance out the defense. That is what Coach Saw did after getting Roland. Anderson and Roland will be sharing time on the field in different situations, and in situations that will hopefully make them successful. Anderson is fast (B+) for his size and is strong (C+). Even though his coverage skills are subpar (D/D+) he will be redshirted to work on how to read the QB's eye from none other than MLB Austin Moore.

    :3stars:DE Jay Moore (6'5"/209)- With a severely Senior laden class at the DE position Moore will probably start as a Freshman. Right now Miami(OH) is trying to grab another DE in hopes of creating a great competition between the two guys during summer practices. Moore will give opposing QBs nightmares and he will give the OTs a lot of trouble with his swim moves (C+/C+), acceleration off the ball (B), and he is a threat to knocking the ball loose with his hitting ability (C+).

    Western Michigan:

    :3stars:#84 ATH Thomas Curry 6'1 188- Thomas is listed as an athlete but will play receiver. He will come in and automatically be one of the fastest guys on the field (A- speed). Tough to tell if he'll get a redshirt or play right away right now. He would benefit from a redshirt, but he may have to play.

    :3stars:#93 WR Marcus Sisk- 6'0 163- Marcus has good speed (B+) and that's what the Western Michigan coaching staff always looks for when they go after receivers. Like Thomas, Marcus could also benefit from a redshirt and it's a very good chance that he'll get one.

    :3stars:#52 DE Josh Sowell- 6'0 240- Josh is a very raw talent, but will most likely be playing right away next season. The Broncos only have one returning defensive end which means Josh will have to play, and play often.

    The big news on the Western Michigan front is that they have moved up to the #2 spot only behind South Florida for a chance to land the #11 QB in the nation, :4stars:Carlos Leonard. Carlos could come in and start right away for the Broncos, which I'm sure is what the plan is.
