2014 Northern Illinois Football Recruiting: CB Albert Smalls Commits To Huskies

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

When it rains, it washes away BCS dreams and commitments. Or so has been the case with Northern Illinois which has been hemorrhaging commitment from its 2014 class lately. The team lost three in the past two weeks, including some highly sought after pieces.

But as bad as the Huskies recruiting has been for the past few weeks, they did snag a nice verbal commitment over the weekend. Albert Smalls, out of Monsignor Pace High School in Holly Wood, Fla., committed to the Huskies 2014 class over the weekend according to 247Sports. A 6-foot, 190 pound cornerback, Smalls is a solid defensive back, he's unranked by any scouting service. But, he does carry offers from Marshall, Akron, Florida Atlantic and Western Kentucky.

With his bulk, if he can grow an inch or two more (some places already have him listed at 6'1'') he could develop into a safety for NIU. According to his scouting report on ESPN, he's rather slow for a cornerback, so the safety route might be how he ends up going.

Smalls commitment gives NIU 16 so far. With just nine days to go though, Rod Carey has some work to do to get a class put together that won't make NIU fans call animal control.
