SIU Football welcomes 18 in February signing period

Posted: Updated:

CARBONDALE -- SIU head football coach Nick Hill added 18 new players on the opening day of the February signing period.  Added with the nine Southern signed back in December's early signing period, there are 27 new Salukis.

The breakdown of the signees was pretty balanced with 14 on offense, 12 on defense, and one athlete without a position.

With senior quarterbacks Sam Straub and Matt DeSomer out of eligibility, and no upper class quarterbacks on the roster, SIU added two juco transfers at quarterback:  junior Kare' Lyles from Scottsdale, Arizona and sophomore Cooper Callis from Jackson, Missouri.

Callis was one of four area signees, joining West Frankfort linebacker Madison Allen, Marion defensive tackle James Gunn, and Herrin wide receiver Tate Johnson.

Hill joined Sports Director Darren Kinnard for a live interview during the 6:00 sportscast Wednesday.
