Riverside (Mo.) Park Hill South offensive lineman Brett Gallimore has begun to narrow his list of schools and according to his father, could have a decision sometime in the next four or five weeks.
"We went and watched the K-State game Saturday night," Gallimore's father Rick said. "We had seats down low and it was tough to see over the bench for some of the action."

The process of deciding on a school has begun to wind down a little for the four-star prospect.
"We have eliminated Wyoming, Kansas and Minnesota," Gallimore said. "Minnesota was one of the first to offer Brett, but they never really recruited him very hard. Eliminating those few, gets us closer, but still no decision yet. It is looking like it might be four or five weeks. It could go into the sixth week, but I'd look for it before then. I don't think it will extend to after the season."
With some schools having been eliminated, which schools are still in the hunt for the verbal commitment from the No. 11 rated offensive tackle.
"The ones that are still high on Brett's list are Michigan, Ohio State, Iowa, Florida State, Kansas State, Missouri and Nebraska," he said. "Brett will go watch Nebraska play this weekend against Oklahoma State. He is going to go to watch Iowa play Michigan and will also take in the Michigan against Notre Dame game. He's not really favoring any of the schools at this point over the others."
Throughout the recruiting process, Gallimore said all of the schools have stayed within the rules put forth by the NCAA.
"Every school has been real good," he said. "They've followed the rules about when they can contact and everything. I know that is what they are supposed to do, but it is nice. We get e-mails and what not and then we can call them if we need to."
Gallimore's video clip of him blocking a defensive player into the kicking net has drawn rave reviews from fans across the country.
"Brett said he was as shocked as anyone the kid didn't do anything to get out of the block. He didn't spin or roll. So he kept on going. That is the kind of highlight tape that he will keep for a long time and show his kids someday."
