Former NIU walk-on to go out in BCS bowl
DeKALB – Northern Illinois tight end Jason Schepler didn’t have any Division I scholarship offers coming out of Sycamore High School.
He went to some Big Ten camps and had schools in the conference, including Illinois, tell him he could walk on.
Schepler said he wasn’t a huge Huskies fan growing up, but he did watch the team on TV. He was drawn to Jerry Kill’s program at NIU, and decided to stay close to home.
