FULTON – ICC head football coach Jon Williams announced two members of the 2010 Indians’ football team made commitments to play in the SEC on Thursday.
Justin Bean, a 6-foot-2, 200-pound wide receiver from Tupelo High School, signed with Kentucky in 2009 and re-committed to the Wildcats. The former Golden Wave multi-sport standout had six catches for 99 yards and two touchdowns after only playing in four games due to injuries last seasons.
“It feels good re-committing and becoming a Wildcat,” said Bean. “I’ve been working hard to get everything taken care of on and off the field so I can transfer in December.”
Darius Slay, a standout 6-foot-1, 195-pound defensive back from Brunswick High school, originally signed with Mississippi State in 2009 and also re-committed to the Bulldogs. The Georgia native recorded 41 tackles, 36 solo, with 2.5 going for a loss while forcing two fumbles and picking off three passes for the Indians last season.
“I’m feeling good,” said Slay. “I’m excited and the coaches were excited when I talked to them this morning. I’m ready to be a Bulldog.”
