Mychalczuk Inks With Eastern Illinois

College of DuPage LB Steven Mychalczuk (6-3, 247) will play his final two seasons for Eastern Illinois...

"It's finalized. I'm going to Eastern Illinois," Mychalczuk told Saturday evening.

Mychalczuk had been holding out hope of receiving an offer from an FBS program, but things never materialized.

"Ole Miss would have offered but I didn't meet SEC requirements with the three semester rule," Mychalczuk noted. "Utah State wanted to work something out with me and Rutgers really wanted me walk-on, but because I was non-qualifier out of high school they can't offer and a lot of schools were afraid I wouldn't get the grade I needed this summer to be eligible so they didn't offer."

Mychalczuk did receive the grade needed to finish up his degree, so he will enroll at Eastern Illinois in the next two weeks.

Mychalczuk played his freshman season at Dean College, totaling over 50 tackles while started as a middle linebacker for the Bulldogs. He then made the switch to College of DuPage where he racked up over 60 tackles, 17 tackles-for-loss, three forced fumbles and four interceptions while playing in just four games.

As noted earlier, Mychalczuk will enroll at Eastern Illinois in the next two weeks and he will have three years to play two starting this fall.
