Northern Illinois now possesses commitments from the #13, #18 and #19 players in the Show Me State according to Rivals.com.
Former Ball State commit Andrew Ness is an enormous Center prospect that could potentially play one of the guard positions as well. Inside backer Patrick Meehan is a sleeper prospect with good size but didn't receive much recruiting attention because of below-average 40 times (4.7 is still pretty fast!) As a football player, his reputation is pretty ridiculous: 2-time St. Louis Dispatch (biggest newspaper in StL) Defensive Player of the Year and last season he had 123 tackles, 10 sacks and 5 interceptions.
Both players had been on Doeren's radar for a long time at Wisconsin.
You can view profiles for both of these prospects after the jump. We're up to 10 commitments now.
