Two-star defensive tackle Brian Canoy (Chicago/St. Patrick) committed to Northern Illinois on Sunday.

Canoy, a 6-foot-4, 24o-pound interior lineman, told ESPN.com in an email he became the Huskies' 17th pledge of their 2012 class.

Canoy joins fellow Chicago lineman Mario Jones as the only defensive tackles in the Huskies' class. They also have a pair of commits at defensive end.
