Matt Suhey, who played fullback for the Bear from 1980 to 1989 and made a career blocking for Walter Payton, talked to FOS today, and said, "Yes, he (Joe) committed a couple of days ago."
An All-Area selection as a junior, many folks feel that Suhey was a lock for Penn State because of his family's success as a Nittany Lion as well as Matt Suhey's relationship with the Paterno family but that may not be the case.
Suhey has become close friends with Loyola Academy basketball teammate Jeff Jordan, who happens to be the son of NBA legend Michael Jordan.
His coach, John Holecek, is a former Illinois and NFL linebacker.
In terms of position at the next level some feel Suhey could be a possession receiver or a fullback. Others feel that he will grow into an outside linebacker.
