2015 Northern Illinois Football Recruiting: Huskies Add 2 Commits

The Northern Illinois Huskies have been hard at work on the recruiting trail this weekend. It all started Thursday with the commitment from 3-star athlete D.J. Brown out of Little Rock, Arkansas. Today NIU picked up two more commits, as reported by 247Sports' Steve Wiltfong.

First NIU got a commitment from 2015 wide receiver Steven Lee, then 2015 offensive tackle Vincent Hughes gave his pledge to the Huskies as well.

Hughes is the higher impact commit of the two. Currently ranked 3-stars (247Sports Composite), the Franklin, Wisconsin native is considered a Top-5 prospect in the state of Wisconsin, and a Top-100 offensive tackle prospect. Hughes was a hot commodity in the MAC. At 6-foot-6, 255 pounds it's easy to see why.

He chose NIU over offers from Bowling Green, Buffalo, CMU, EMU, Miami and WMU, as well as Illinois State, New Mexico and Western Illinois.

Lee, a 6-foot-3, 215-pound receiver out of Champaign, Illinois is currently unranked by the major scouting services, but has impressive size for a high school receiver. His only other offers were from Wyoming, and Southern Illinois.

We'll have full write ups on both in the coming days.
