Sleeper DE Commits Breaking News: Phoenix Christian DE makes college commitment

Defensive end Josh Terry took his official visit to Southern Illinois with no offer in hand but walked away with one and was ready to commit while visiting.

"I was ready to commit there but wanted to talk it over with my mom," says Terry.

I took Terry (6-3 230) less then 24 hours to decide that SIU was were he wanted to be.

"I committed around 11 today."

"The environment and team camaraderie" were two areas that sold Terry. He also liked the fact that the Salukis run the same defense as his high school and that "four coaches on staff have been head coaches before."

Terry says he wants to major in political science and he should have no problems qualifying as he scored a 1490 on the three-part SAT and maintains a 3.0 GPA.

Terry chose SIU over NAU and ASU.
