Waukesha (Wis.) Catholic Memorial punter Austin Pucylowski made a decision yesterday. The 6-foot-4, 225-pounder decided to head to head to I-AA.
"He verbally committed yesterday to Southern Illinois," Pucylowski's father, Jeff said. "He went on two officials and decided.
"He had an offer from Illinois State and a preferred from Wisconsin and a chance from Virginia Tech.
"It was a tough choice, but he went for the warmer weather a little bit."
A few factors played into Pucylowski's choice.
"They've got new athletic facilities and he liked the education," he said. "He also had the opportunity to play right away."
Pucylowski earned five-star status from the Kohl's Kicking Camps.
