Dominique Ware verbally committed to Northern Illinois football coach Jerry Kill to become the Huskies' third commitment of the class of 2009.

Dominique chose NIU over interest from Ball State, Bowling Green, Colorado State, Georgetown, Western Michigan, and Wyoming.

Ware plays both wide receiver and cornerback for the White Tigers and is looking forward to the upcoming season. "We went 3-6 last year, but this year I can see us going 6-3," Ware remarked.

Dominique also runs for the Plainfield North track team.
