After bouncing back and forth between the desire to stay close to home and the wish to play college football at the highest level, offensive lineman Jessy McMullin has made the decision on what is most important for him.
"Southern Illinois," he said in a text when asked by Inside Sparta if he had made a decision. "Home is home. The price of (FBS) is not worth the price of missing my family and friends."
The 6-foot-6, 289-pound McMullin had narrowed his choices to Football Championship Subdivsion SIU, and top league Football Bowl Subdivision San Jose State.
