NIU National Signing Class 2012

Today we'll be breaking down the recruiting class that has been signed by Northern Illinois for 2012. Now you can find a list of all of the signed recruits at the official site and Huskie Wire has a live blog going as well. After the jump we'll post the recruits we have profiles for and try to come up with some for those that don't. The recruits will be in alphabetical order.

It's a great class with not too many surprises other than the players that we already knew were verbals FULL OF SURPRISES to the Northern Illinois program. We'll be breaking down the class in the days to come:
