Malcolm Agnew's brother Ray is a Salukis fullback.
SIU coach Dale Lennon announced Monday the addition of Agnew to his Missouri Valley Conference program.
Agnew will be a junior for the 2013 season. Agnew has three years to play two seasons but will be eligible to play this fall and preserve his redshirt since Southern Illinois is a Football Championship Subdivision school.
The Beavers return Storm Woods and Terron Ward this spring, along with Chris Brown, who redshirted as a freshman last season.
In two seasons at Oregon State, he rushed for 692 yards and six touchdowns, averaging 4.6 yards per carry. Included was a 223-yard, three-touchdown performance in his first collegiate game in 2011.
But he experienced hamstring and injury issues almost immediately after arriving at Oregon State.
Agnew was a former track sprinter at De Smet Jesuit High School in St. Louis.
