Quincy Notre Dame quarterback Ike Wiley is a very happy and relieved young man at this hour in "The Gem City." That's because the Raider standout signal caller has finally come to one of the biggest decisions of his life. Wiley informed the world on Tuesday (via his Twitter account) that he's now verbally committed to join the ranks of the Quincy University Hawks football program next season.
Wiley led the Raiders to the IHSA State Semifinals in 2019. During that campaign, Wiley finished the year with almost 2,000 yards passing and 21 touchdown passes. The future QU business major also had 4 rushing touchdowns last season in route to racking up 623 total yards on the ground. The crafty 180 pounder has proven to be a very capable runner when flushed out of the pocket, or when called on to run the pigskin on designed plays in the Raiders offensive playbook.
Wiley informed WGEM Sports earlier today that he made his final decision on Monday night. He selected to the Hawks over Truman State after a phone call with QU head coach Gary Bass. Both football programs are members of the NCAA's Division II Great Lakes Valley Conference.
Wiley has not set up a signing date at this time, but he does have firm plans to finish out his prep career with the "Blue and Gold" this spring, if the IHSA's plan to allow football games to be played in the months ahead moves forward in the wake of the ongoing COVID-19 global pandemic.
