NIU is putting in work on the recruiting trail and a RB/LB has the attention of many in the MAC in this week’s Roundup.
Team Commitments (per 247Sports)
The Northern Illinois Huskies made some serious noise on the recruiting trail this week as Antario Brown and Muhammed Jammeh both committed. Brown is the highest rated player of NIU’s class as a three-star RB out of Georgia, while Jammeh is a 6’2” CB out of Detroit.

Recruiting Battle to Watch
On this week’s Battle, we take a look at look at an athlete out of a storied program in Chicago that has offers from half of the MAC. Kenenna Odeluga, a 6’, 200 lbs. prospect out of Mount Carmel, currently has 13 offers, including ones from Ball State, Bowling Green, CMU, NIU, Toledo, and WMU. As you can see on his Hudl film, Odeluga has great acceleration, vision, and power as a RB to go with some pass-catching skills. He’s probably too short to be an LB in college, but he can be a quality back after a year or two in a strength and conditioning program.
