IMG Academy basketball player Austin Pauga commits to Northern Illinois

IMG Academy guard Austin Pauga has committed to play college basketball at Northern Illinois University.

The 6-foot-5 Pauga is in a post-grad year this season, and averaged 14 points, six assists and three rebounds a game as a senior last year.

The shooting guard is originally from Naperville, Ill., which is roughly 40 miles from NIU.

He is scheduled to sign in November, which is the early signing period for basketball players.
