Columbus Scotus junior wide receiver/tight end Garrett Oakley has committed to Northern Illinois to play college football, announcing his decision on Twitter on Wednesday morning.

The 6-foot-5, 205-pound Oakley, a Class C-1 honorable-mention all-stater last season, chose the Huskies over offers from South Dakota, South Dakota State, North Dakota and North Dakota State.

Oakley, who runs a 4.6 40-yard dash, is the third Nebraska player from the class of 2022 to commit to Northern Illinois, joining Omaha Skutt quarterback Caden Becker and Millard South linebacker Jake Gassaway.
