Eastern wide receiver/defensive back Darius Merriweather signed a national letter of intent Wednesday to attend Southern Illinois University on a football scholarship.
Merriweather will join Eastern graduate Ron Baines, a freshman cornerback, on the Salukis roster.
Southern Illinois is an FCS (formerly Division I-AA) program that competes in the Missouri Valley Conference with programs such as Youngstown State, North Dakota State, and Northern Iowa.
"It's a great spot for Darius," Eastern coach Dan Spittal said. "He's got a chance to do very well."
