All along, Riley O'Toole said he just likes making plays. It looks like the Naperville Central senior will have the opportunity at Northern Illinois.
O'Toole was not part of the 24-man class the Huskies assembled last month. O'Toole visited Iowa during the football season and discussed the possibility of being a preferred walk-on at Arizona, but he has chosen to stay close to home.
The 6-foot-4-inch O'Toole has been one of Central's most valuable and versatile players across the last two seasons, lining up at wide receiver, linebacker, safety and punter. A unanimous all-DVC selection last year, O'Toole caught 28 passes for 537 yards and six touchdowns.
