Countryside WR/DB Todd Shorter has committed to Illinois State.

The 5-foot-11, 180-pound standout picked ISU, a Division I-AA program, over Wofford and Youngstown State.

“They were on him very early and stayed on him,” Cougars coach John Davis said. “He went up there last weekend and really liked it. He decided to commit and get it over with, which I’m very pleased with. He’s a heck of a player.”

A three-year starter, Shorter had 35 receptions for 555 yards in 2009.

At ISU, he will start at safety.

According to Davis, Shorter has a high upside.

“The thing is, if it doesn’t work out at safety they know he can play receiver,” Davis said. “He’s got great hands and great hip movement. He’s a great athlete, and a very smart player with unbelievable instincts.”

ISU plays in the Missouri Valley Conference. The Redbirds went 6-5 last season and tied for third in the league.
