Cam Mattox sixth NIU commit for 2019

Northern Illinois got its sixth commit for the current recruiting cycle with the addition of in-state defensive end Cam Mattox.

Mattox (Country Club Hills, Ill.; Hillcrest) is listed at 6-foot-3 and 215 pounds, so length is already an advantage for him at his position. A lot of other schools thought so, too. NIU was the second school to offer him (back in February), but his 13 others came from Ball State, Indiana State, South Dakota, Eastern Kentucky, Southern Illinois, Tennessee-Martin, Western Illinois, Fordham, Toledo, Eastern Michigan, Holy Cross, Army and Northern Iowa.

This is now NIU’s fifth in-state commit of the recruiting cycle. Last year, 14 of its class size of 24 came from the state of Illinois.
