SPRINGFIELD -- Sacred Heart-Griffin's Grant Edwards has been named to HERO Sports' list of the top 50 recruits who are committed to FCS schools.

Edwards, a 6-foot-1, 240-pounder, will play defensive line for Eastern Illinois after his senior season with SHG. He is a linebacker and defensive lineman for head coach Ken Leonard's Cyclones.

Last season SHG running back Tremayne Lee (SIU) made the list at No. 114, while St. Teresa lineman Beau Branyan (SIU) was named the No. 25 recruit in the Missouri Valley Football Conference.
