Somehow we managed to miss this one, but it looks like Northern Illinois picked up another transfer earlier this month. The Huskies announced the signing of former Illinois State center Jordan Threloff on their official website last week.

Threloff is the third player to transfer to the Huskies this off season, joining former Wisconsin-Green Bay guard Aaron Armstead and former Kansas State guard Michael Orris.

Threloff played sparingly during his three seasons with Illinois State. After redshirting his freshman season, the DeKalb, Ill., native averaged 10.5 minutes in 2011-2012 and 7.9 minutes this past season. Because he redshirted his freshman season, the 6-foot-10 big-man will only have one year of eligibility left after he sits out the 2013-2014 season, per NCAA guidelines.

A highly sought after mid-major talent out of high school, Threloff grew up attending Huskies games in his hometown. He led the DeKalb High School Barbs to back-to-back Western Sun Conference titles. He posted more than 1,500 points and 1,000 boards during his four seasons as a starter for The Barbs.

He had offers from 13 schools coming out of high school, including the Huskies, but chose to attend Illinois State at the time. Now the big-man is returning home where his size will surely help the Huskies when he's eligible in the 2014-2015 season.
