NIU's recruiting class received a huge boost on Sunday afternoon when 3-star WR Spencer Tears committed to NIU. This is the 22nd commit to verbally commit to NIU in what is turning out to be another strong recruiting class for Rod Carey.
Tears was committed to Nebraska at one time, however he announced on Sunday afternoon that he would play his collegiate career at NIU:
Spencer decided to commit to NIU while on his official visit this weekend. He chose the Huskies over offers from Akron, Ball State, Bowling Green, Indiana, Louisville, Nebraska, Ohio, Purdue, Syracuse, Toledo, and Western Michigan.
Shortly after his commitment, we caught up with Spencer to see why he chose NIU:
"NIU is a brotherhood and they treated me like family as soon as I touched down on campus. I loved that. I am most looking forward to playing close to home and putting on for my home state."
Tears is an explosive player who is a threat to score every time he touches the ball. At 6-foot-2 175 pounds, Tears will cause many problems for opposing MAC cornerbacks.
