Some players from 2008, ’09 recruiting classes made impact
The Northern Illinois football team just completed its best season in recent memory, winning its second consecutive Mid-American Conference championship and ending the 2012 season with a berth in the Orange Bowl.
The talent on the 2012 team was mainly built from former coach Jerry Kill’s first two recruiting classes in 2008 and 2009. As with any recruiting class a Mid-American Conference school brings in, these groups were mainly two-star players who were overlooked by the bigger schools. Some had BCS offers but decided to head to DeKalb and spurn the big-time programs.
A good number of players left NIU before their eligibility was up, and some will be counted on to make a big impact as fifth-year seniors in 2013.
