Tommy Fuessel (6-3, 176) ATH

Fuessel was originially committed to Northern Illinois before decommitting and signing with NU in early December. He was going to play quarterback at NIU but is more likely to try and pick up the receiver position in Evanston. The Illinois native possesses a great size-speed combination (4.46 40-yard dash). The big issue with Fuessel will be how he adapts to his new position, considering he only played quarterback in high school. He could potentially end up being a key special teams contributor early on.
