Most of Northern Illinois’ 24 signees from home state

Northern Illinois head coach Rod Carey pulled off an impressive recruiting class to start off the early signing period. Of Wednesday’s 24 signees, 14 are from the state of Illinois, nine are from the midwest and he dipped into Florida for just one player.

The last one to send in his letter of intent was probably one of the biggest pieces to this class. Charles Robinson (Aurora, Ill.; Waubonsie Valley HS), the tight end/wide receiver who’s listed at 6-foot-3, 210 pounds, is an excellent addition to this Huskie program.

With Robinson, there are 11 total three-star prospects (according to in this class.

Devin Haney (Kansas City, Mo.; Park Hill HS) is a play-making cornerback, as is Antwain Walker (Oswego, Ill.; Oswego East HS). Justin Hall (Floosmoor, Ill.; Homewood-Floosmor HS) is the highest-rated defensive back in this signing class and will participate in the Under Armour All-American game.

Jiya Wright, the two-star quarterback out of Fort Wayne, Ind. (Homestead HS), is just the kind of dual-threat quarterback that fits the stereotype of what an NIU quarterback plays like.

Below is the list of players who have signed their LOIs with Northern Illinois. Links go out to their Hudl (or YouTube) pages, Twitter accounts and the videos below each player come from what the school has tweeted out.
